  • Use Income Account for Inventoried Items: If you would like a separate income account for inventoried items, you can choose this here
  • Advanced Defaults for new Items: If you've configured items to be sent as non inventoried, you won't have this option. If you've configured items to be sent as inventoried, you can use this option to configure more default accounts

If you've selected the advanced options, you'll see the above. These options are explained here:

  • Use Expense Account: Choose the expense account to be assigned to all items in Xero
  • Use COGS Account for Inventoried Items: Select the COGS account to be assigned to all inventoried items added to Xero
  • Use Inventory Asset Account for Inventoried Items: Much like the other accounts previously selected, here you choose the Inventory Asset Account to be assigned to all inventoried items added to Xero

If you're not sure what accounts to configure, please speak to your Bookkeeper as they'll know your business's accounting practices best.

How can I assign different accounts to specific products?

We will not override default account changes for any product in Xero. The options available for you to select above, are simply so we can add new products.

If you have a product that already exists in Xero, we will simply match up with the product and respect the configured accounts.

If we push a product to Xero, then you edit the product and change a configured account, we won't override the change.
