Welcome Back Kelliegh

Many of you would remember this smiling face when you walked into reception. Unfortunately for us, Kelliegh and family moved down to Taupo at the beginning of the year. We missed her so much, she agreed to come back and work for Tael as our Accounts Assistant.

Thanks to the wonders of modern technology, Kelliegh is able to work from Taupo and provide the same high-quality work as when she sat in the office. She has her own mobile number so if you get a call from a mobile number you don't recognise, it might just be Kelliegh calling.

I'm sure you will all join me and welcoming Kelliegh back!

Are you using Hubdoc yet?

We are encouraging all our Xero business plan users to get the Hubdoc add-on as it is free to download for those on a Starter, Standard and Premium Xero plans.

If you are currently on one of these selected plans, we would like to encourage you to start using this free service.

If you pay your subscription directly to Xero you will need to activate the Hubdoc function yourself, however if you pay us for the Xero subscription, we will need to activate it for you.

Hubdoc is a digital document collection and storage system. It’s got a lot more functionally than Xero files.

Here are some of Hubdoc’s great features:

1. Document collection
Hubdoc lets you add paper and digital documents by:

  • dragging and dropping from your desktop,
  • emailing using your unique intake email address,
  • taking a photo with the Hubdoc mobile app,
  • scanning documents using the integration with ScanSnap Cloud,
  • uploading multi page documents and split PDFs in Hubdoc.

2. Code and post transactions to Xero

  • Hubdoc extracts the key data from uploaded documents (contact, date, total amount, invoice number and more) ready to code and publish to Xero.
  • Hubdoc imports your contacts and chart of accounts when connected to Xero.
  • To make things even more efficient, you can set up supplier rules and automate how documents are coded and posted by enabling auto sync.

3. Reconcile transactions in the Xero bank feed
Once documents and their data are published to Xero, it’s matched to the corresponding transaction in the bank feed and can be reconciled with the original document attached.

Get in contact here is you want to know more about getting Hubdoc set up.
