Xero – Sync Invoices in TimeSolv to Xero

Users need to set up sync settings before they can sync for the first time. Head over to Accounts>Integrations>Xero – Non-Certified>Sync Setup to get started.


Enable Invoice Sync

  • Click on Enable Invoice Sync checkbox for setup.


  • Configure the following accounts:

a) Fees Account – Select a ‘Sales’ type Xero account to record fees in. You can create a new Xero account by clicking on the plus (+) icon. This dropdown list shows Xero accounts of types ‘Sales’ and ‘Revenue’. You can create a new Xero account by clicking on the plus (+) icon.

b) Unspecified Expenses Account – Select a Xero account to record unspecified expenses in. These are the expense entries for which the expense code was not selected in the Expense Entry in TimeSolv App. For example, if you reimburse such expenses from your clients, select an account of the type ‘Current Asset’. Otherwise, if you are charging your clients for such expenses, they are your revenue. So select an account of type ‘Revenue’. NOTE: Some organizations record them in ‘Expense’ type Xero accounts. However, to let you select the desired Xero account, this list includes Xero accounts of types ‘Current Asset’, ‘Revenue’, and ‘Expense’. You can create a new Xero account by clicking on the plus (+) icon.
