April Fools! MTD, of course, hasn’t been cancelled, delayed or magicked into thin air. And, it also isn’t that complicated with Expandly. 

Making Tax Digital for e-commerce

If you’re an accountant or bookkeeper working with VAT-registered e-commerce clients, or you’re a VAT-registered e-commerce business handling your own accounts, you now need to comply with MTD (if you’ve had your head completely in the beach, you can read more about MTD for eCommerce here). This requires MTD-enabled software, the storing of financial records digitally, and the submission of VAT returns via your MTD-enabled software. The biggest headache?

Digitally linking your sales orders with your accounting software

Sending sales orders from Amazon, Shopify, eBay or whatever sales channel is being used, to Xero can be frustrating to say the least. Error-prone, time-consuming and not all that intuitive. Before, you could get around this by manually typing, copying and pasting, or using single-channel apps. Now, that’s either not allowed, or just too time-consuming.

Digitally linking your sales orders with Xero, using Expandly

Expandly’s sales channel-Xero integration makes MTD easy.

Digitally link Shopify, Amazon, eBay and 30+ other channels with Xero –  no spreadsheet or manual input required

Automatically push sales orders to Xero – on a daily, weekly or monthly basis

Group orders – to avoid Xero’s soft transaction limit

Pre-approve orders – pushing them straight into Xero’s paid section

Work cross-channel – pushing orders from Amazon, eBay, Etsy and 30+ other channels into Xero.

It really is that easy – just look for yourself:

 

Expandly accounting partnership

With MTD creating additional pressures on e-commerce accountants and bookkeepers, the time saved not faffing about with the transfer of sales orders into Xero when using Expandly is being heralded by top accountants, which is why we’ve created the Expandly-accounting partnership.
