How the Splose + Xero two-way integration works

Invoices

An invoice is synced with Xero when it is sent or a payment is applied. An invoice won't be synced while it is in the draft status, so you can make any updates.

Clients and contacts

The invoice recipient (client or contact) will first be looked up in Xero to see if there's a match. If there is, the invoice will be associated with the contact. If there isn't, a new contact will be created in Xero. You can track lifetime value and generate account statements in Xero. Details like name, email, phone numbers and address are synced to Xero.

Payments

Payments applied to invoices in Splose will be synced along with item description, tax rates and Xero accounts.

Chart of accounts

Accounts for all invoice item lines created in Splose is synced to Xero to ensure your ledger is accurate.

Tax rates

Tax rates applied to invoice item lines such as GST free, GST on income etc. are synced across to Xero.

Discounts

Percentage and dollar amount discounts applied to invoice item lines are synced to Xero.

Total tax

The invoice sub total will be synced to Splose, such as including tax, excluding tax or no tax.

The Xero + Splose integration makes reconciling your accounts effortless - simply match bank statement lines with transactions in Xero.

Connect an organisation

If your Xero account has multiple organisations, you must select the organisation that you want to connect to Splose.

You can specify the date range and import these invoices.
