Lightspeed Accounting and Xero:
An accounting solution for retailers and restaurants

Lightspeed's integration to Xero seamlessly connects your point of sale to your Xero accounting software, forming a portal through which your financial data is automatically transmitted. It’s through this integration that retailers and restaurateurs can establish the most efficient and reliable accounting process.

Integrates with Lightspeed Retail and Lightspeed Restaurant

Lightspeed Accounting syncs your POS data with Xero’s accounting software, automating your accounting process. Tailored to meet the varying needs of both retailers and restaurateurs, this integration is flexible enough to support multiple payment types, locations and sales taxes.

Automates your financial posting process

Stop manually exporting and importing your data. This integration does the work for you by automatically posting your financial data to Xero’s accounting software on a daily basis, giving you more time to focus on the many other aspects of your business.

Offers a choice of posting methods

You need to be able to run your business in a way that works best for you and that is also compatible with your industry. When it comes to transferring financial data from your POS to Xero, you can choose to post it in invoice or journal entry format.

Built with multi-location and multi-tax capabilities

Whether you have a single location and plan to expand, or manage multiple establishments in different cities or states, Lightspeed Accounting can post your data at the location level and identify multiple sales taxes as distinct line items.

Provides comprehensive reporting across locations

No need to be an accounting expert to make sense of your data. The integration’s reporting dashboards provide a complete overview of your business’ daily, weekly, monthly or annual performance, allowing you to set goals, track trends and forecast.

We now have a daily feed into our accounting package, allowing us to better track revenue to expenses. This data feeds into other tools from Xero, including our KPI dashboard.
