Automation is ever important in our world today. We all want more time, but seem only to have less of it. By making our lives more streamlined and automated we can save time.  Saving time can lead to saving money too.

Over the next few weeks, we will be discussing ways that you can be more automated in Xero.  This article is focusing on using the Repeating Invoices feature within Xero. 

Repeating Invoices

Repeating Invoices can be used for customers you invoice on a regular basis. Once set-up, Xero will automatically create a new invoice based on the schedule you set-up.  Using this feature speeds up the invoicing process.

To access this feature in Xero, go to Accounts>Sales>Repeating> New Repeating Invoice.
