Step 4: Sync Tax Schemas

To post the Tax details of invoices to Xero, you need to Sync Tax Schemas with Xero.
Go to Integrations -> Xero-> Tax Schemas, click on Sync Tax Rates With Xero.

Posting Invoices to Xero

Zeevou can post invoices to Xero once a guest checks out. Before that point, the invoice in Zeevou is kept as a draft invoice (pro-forma), and it cannot be posted to Xero yet as there may be changes to the booking before the guest leaves. To post invoices to Xero, all invoice lines should have an account. To do so, you need to not only fill them in the Accounting Schema but also set up Investor Deals. Once you have done so, click on Finances -> Invoices and open the relevant invoice. You should see an option on the top right “Post to Xero”. Once posted, you can click on the Remote Invoice No. to check if the details have been sent across correctly.

Note: For the invoices which have already been created before the integration and have no accounting code, you should change their status to Draft and then try to Regenerate the Invoice. After regenerating, the invoice will be filled by assigned Account Codes in Accounting Schema.

How can I disconnect from Xero?
