How can I transfer an invoice from Nexudus?

Before you transfer an invoice to Xero, you must make sure that all of the Products, Plans, Charges and Passes that you're invoicing are assigned an account. If you haven't done so already, you can add as many accounts as you need via Finance > Chart of Accounts. All accounts created in Nexudus need to match exactly the accounts created in Xero.  The accounts that you've added will need to be of Sales type and can be assigned to the Products, Plans, Charges or Passes that you're going to invoice, by viewing their details and selecting them in the Account field.

You will need to map each item you sell to a tax and a chart of account from the Finance -> Tax rates/ Chart of accounts section:
