Xero Accounts for Diverse Accounting

In order to use the diverse accounting feature of Xero Re-Billing, you will need to create the following accounts in your Xero.

You can do this under Settings -> Chart of Accounts


All accounts must be Revenue accounts.  Typically they would be classified as a Sale account, however any choice of revenue account will work from a technical perspective.  We recommend seeking advice from your accountant or CFO as to which suits your model best.

    Please note we have added a new account code for our new Cloud Hosted Desktop products (DaaS) - NN-HDESK. If you're using diverse accounting you will need to add this account code to your Xero account before selling cloud desktop products.
