We have worked with Liston Newton's Accountancy and Advisory Team for over a decade. During that time, our business has grown substantially both organically and through purchases. This wouldn’t have been possible without Liston Newton Advisory to assist with our business planning, providing proactive advice and ensuring our accounts were always compliant in a complex and volatile industry.
Liston Newton's Accountants analysed our financial and business situation and helped us implement strategies to improve our position. Their strategies turned our business from making a loss, to recording a 6-month net profit of 36 per cent. And we are now on track to show a 240 per cent increase in turnover over the next financial year.
Liston Newton helped us move our accounting over to Xero. Their Accountant managed the set up and training so we felt comfortable with the software. We now have all our processes streamlined which gives us improved visibility of our business performance. This has allowed us to open 2 more stores without a significant increase in administration effort.
Our professional Xero setup services cover every aspect of the process. Trust our guidance to achieve your financial goals, now and for the long term.

When choosing the Xero plan for your business, it’s important to first determine exactly what you need to achieve with your platform.
The beauty of Xero is that its plans are scalable, so you can start out on one plan and grow from there.
As Xero setup experts, we can help you identify the right plan for your business.
Absolutely. Part of your Xero setup is managing the data conversion for you. Given the complexity, the data involved, and the planning and research, this can take up to 3 months or more.
But rest assured that we will take care of it as part of setting up Xero for you.
Ideally, there will be a seamless transition from your current platform to a new Xero platform. After all, we don’t want to leave your business without an operational accounting platform.
As such, the bulk of our Xero setup work goes into meticulous planning, preparation, research, and data entry of your existing data. Then it’s just a matter of signing you up to Xero, customising your platform, and managing your Xero setup and training. All the important data should be converted already — it’s just a matter of learning how to use the platform.
Our diligent preparation will also ensure you’re left with an accounts scheme approved under professional standards legislation.
Yes. You can export payroll data from your current accounting system into a spreadsheet document. You can then import that document into Xero’s cloud-based accounting software. Our Xero experts can help you do this.
Xero is designed to be an intuitive and user-friendly online accounting software. However, it never hurts to get extra training.
Our Liston Newton advisers can provide thorough Xero setup and training. We’ll take you through the business Xero dashboard one feature at a time, and provide ongoing support to ensure you’re comfortable with your new bookkeeping software.
Alternatively, Xero features a comprehensive learning centre where you can undertake specific features and modules training in your own time.
