For progressive business owners…

HOW TO SET UP AND USE XERO TO GIVE YOU ALL THE INFORMATION YOU NEED TO MAKE INFORMED BUSINESS DECISIONS

WITHOUT SPENDING A FORTUNE ON TRAINING OR ADVICE, LEAVING YOUR PROPERTY OR HAVING ANY PRIOR KNOWLEDGE OF XERO OR BOOKKEEPING

Have you switched your Ag business over to Xero and you’re now working out how to best set it up?
Or you’re already using Xero but want to get more out of it for your Ag business?
Like all big changes there’s a learning curve.
And it’s so easy to feel:
Overwhelmed because Xero is innovative and has so much functionality
Nervous because you want this fresh, clean slate to be a success
Worried about how to get your partner on board with it
Under time pressure because the year is flying by
Hesitant because you’re no bookkeeping expert

And what makes it worse is that you’ve:

Probably already had a look online about how to set up Xero and discovered that a lot of the information is generic and doesn’t relate specifically to Ag businesses.
Or maybe you’ve thought about going to a training day in town but it’s too much of a mission with the kids, the bus run and you never know when you might be needed in the yards.

DOUBTING YOURSELF

And there’s those nagging thoughts in the back of your mind that you’re not that good with tech and you don’t know that much about bookkeeping. So, what on earth have you got yourself in for.

NOT ENOUGH HOURS IN THE DAY

And how much time is it going to take to get your Xero file set up optimally for your ag business and learn how to use it to get the most out of it? You don’t want to be spending the few precious hours after the kids have gone to bed slaving away on the books.

BEEN THERE, DONE THAT

Before we started using Xero, my husband was always asking me for copies of paperwork for our farming and cattle operations. He wanted to know what we’d spent on the Fendt tractor or how many head we sold in that last sale, right now preferably. And the out of control filing pile was driving me mad!
We fought about it ALL the time. And even though ‘I quit’ doing the books a squillion times, I really wanted to understand the finances and be an asset to the business.
I discovered Xero and could see the benefits for our broad acre cropping and cattle properties. I was excited about making the switch from the very basic system we were using.
But a tool is only as good as the person using it so I knew that I had to put in the work to make it a success. That meant getting it set up correctly and making sure that I was making the most of all the features.
And I cracked it! I set up our Xero file in such a way that my husband and father-in-law couldn’t fail to be impressed.

Suddenly we went from having a vague idea of our numbers to:

Knowing our true financial position on a weekly basis so we can make real-time, informed decisions
Having all our equipment tracked
Being able to track expenses and income per property
Knowing where we are at with Fuel Tax Credits
Knowing exactly what bills are due and when and paying them in a batch
Recording our cattle and commodities as inventory
Having all our payroll and staff leave online
Accessing all our financial information anywhere, anytime

So now I’m on a mission

to help other innovative and progressive Ag businesses break free of the shackles of the old-fashioned paper-heavy accounting systems and get themselves set up for success on Xero.

Hi, I’m Sarah

I’d Love To Share A Little Of My Story.

Oh hi, I’m Sarah. I wear a few hats.

I’m married with 3 kids under 5 and I do the books for my husband’s family Ag business near Roma in Queensland. I was born and bred on a cattle operation locally.
And in my other life I own and run a rapidly growing bookkeeping business – Diverse Business Consultants – which services small to medium businesses in the hospitality, tourism, professional services, trades and, of course, ag industries. I am a certified BAS agent and specialist Xero bookkeeper. 
Having guided so many businesses through the implementation and optimisation of their Xero file I know that the keys to success are in the set up and understanding of Xero for your particular size and type of business.
If you invest the time and effort now to get Xero set up for success it will give you so much freedom.

Freedom to make business decisions based on your true financial position. Freedom to run your books in an efficient, streamlined and strategic way giving you time back.

Why spend excessive hours slaving over books when you could be spending that time with your kids or partner?

Imagine how great it will be when your partner calls you from up the paddock wanting to know about some rego or piece of equipment and you can smugly say they can find the info themselves on the Xero app on their phone in just a few clicks!

EXPERTLY SETTING UP AND USING XERO FOR YOUR AG BUSINESS WILL:

Enable you to understand your true financial position in real-time

Give you visibility of performance across your entire operation

Help you to make better business decisions

Allow you to access all your details… anywhere, any time

Make doing your BAS a piece of cake

Help you stay compliant with the ATO & plan for possible tax bills

Give you visibility on what bills are due and when

Reduce your paper filing

Oh, and avoid arguments 🙂

And You Don’t Have To:

* Spend time you don’t have – There’s no need to take a whole day off to go into town to attend a training day. You don’t need that what with sorting out child care and school run pick ups
* Get costly advice that may not be on the money – There’s a lot of general Xero advice out there. And it will help you to a point.
But most of the people giving this advice haven’t lived and breathed Xero in their own business – let alone an Ag business – nor have they been through hundreds of other businesses Xero accounts and fine tuned their Xero knowledge and skills.
They wouldn’t have a Scooby Doo how to track your livestock sale and purchase numbers and average prices or track your income and expenses related to particular pieces of machinery.

“As an agricultural business, I was requiring a Trainer who understood using Xero for a large scale farming and farm contracting operation. Diverse Business Consultants provided me with both group and individual training to help me utilise the functions and reporting in Xero Software. I highly recommend engaging the services of Diverse Business Consultants to further understand the capabilities of Xero. Xero has simplified bookkeeping and payroll for our business”.
– ANNABELLE BOARDMAN, BOARDMAN AGRICULTURE
“We operate a family cattle business and had recently changed our financial software to Xero. We needed to transfer our data across to the new system and set up the payroll function. The cloud based software appealed to us as it allows us to access our financial information and run reports at home while Diverse can assist from their office. This gives us access to expertise from Diverse and has also saved us significant time with data entry. Xero offers many user friendly features and we wanted to get the full benefits from the new system and have confidence in the data it provides.
I found that Diverse had an excellent understanding of rural business and industry specific expertise in using Xero, saving us huge amounts of time learning as we go. The ongoing support has been key as we work through implementing the new system and entering data. Having someone available who can answer questions and who understands rural business has been extremely beneficial in getting the set up right.
We are gaining far more value from our Xero software and better utilising its capabilities since we have been working with Diverse. It has also meant data is up to date and improved the quality of our financial information when we meet with our accountant or to support business decision making”.
