Xero is an online accounting software that provides business owners with an understanding of their cash flow by highlighting details such as bank balances, outstanding invoices, upcoming bills, and expense claims.

You can use Hevo Pipelines to replicate the data from your Xero account to the Destination system. For this, you must authorize Hevo to access the account’s data.

One Pipeline can be associated with only one Xero account. However, each account can include multiple organizations.

Note: Xero imposes limits on the number of transactions of different types that a company may process in a given amount of time. Hence, it is not a suitable choice for businesses with a high volume of transactions.

For creating Pipelines using this Source, Hevo provides you a fully managed BigQuery data warehouse as a possible Destination. This option remains available till the time you set up your first BigQuery Destination irrespective of any other Destinations that you may have. With the managed warehouse, you are only charged the cost that Hevo incurs for your project in Google BigQuery. The invoice is generated at the end of each month and payment is recovered as per the payment instrument you have set up. You can now create your Pipeline and directly start analyzing your Source data. Read Hevo Managed Google BigQuery.

Source Considerations

  • Xero only processes a defined number of API requests per organization or account. Due to this limit, Xero does not support processing high volume of transactions. Read API Limits.

  • Payroll objects are available only for the organizations belonging to New Zealand, United Kingdom, and Australia that have completed the Payroll Setup process.

  • Xero does not support authenticating multiple organizations at the same time.
