Making sure your invoices match across your accounting apps is only the first step: You need an accurate record of their payments too, whether partial or in full. Zapier takes care of that for you. Once active, this workflow will capture every new payment you add to FreshBooks, and will automatically pass the information to the appropriate invoice on Xero so your accounting never falls out of date.

Be sure to pair this workflow with this FreshBooks-Xero integration that copies invoices so you can automate the entire process.

Note: Invoices must already exist on Xero for this integration to work.

How this FreshBooks-Xero integration works

  1. A new payment is received on FreshBooks
  2. Zapier automation copies the information onto a Xero invoice for you
