4 things you need to check out at AccountingWeb Live Expo


Nov 28, 2022

AccountingWeb Live Expo is taking place this week, with a huge number of the amazing accounting and bookkeeping community in attendance to enjoy keynotes, panels and mingling at an incredible two-day event.

At Xero, we can’t wait to head to Coventry on the 30 November – 1 December and see so many of you in person. Here, we break down what we have planned for the event, and why you should come say hello at stand D20.  

A panel looking ahead to the future of accounting technology

Our UK MD Alex Von Schirmeister joins a panel of expert speakers to tackle a huge, and hugely interesting topic: Where will Accounting Tech be in 10 Years From Now?

Innovation in accounting technology has been constant in the last decade, from the mass adoption of cloud accounting, to tax digitalisation with Making Tax Digital (MTD), to Open Banking.

The panel will look ahead to the next decade and beyond, tackling the biggest changes coming your way, and offering their thoughts on what accounting will look like in the years to come. The session takes place at 4.15pm on Wednesday 30 November – you don’t want to miss this one. 

Make the most of our masterclasses

At the event, we want to offer practical support for your day-to-day use of Xero. This is why we’re hosting a number of education masterclasses at stand D20.

For those just starting out, education specialist Becca Smith will run you through the very basics of using Xero, taking place at 11am on both days. 

Sam See, another Xero education specialist, will explain how you can streamline accounts production with Xero Tax, in a masterclass taking place at 1pm on 30 November, and 12.30pm on 1 December. 

Finally, Sam will break down how you can get ready for MTD for Income Tax Self Assessment (ITSA) with Xero, at 2.45pm on 30 November, and 2.30pm on 1 December. 

Find out why MTD for ITSA is great

Speaking of MTD for ITSA, we wanted to take this opportunity to explain how the government legislation can benefit your practice and clients. This is why we’re hosting a panel titled: MTD for ITSA is great! Yes, we said it!

Xero’s resident tax experts Amy Farr and Stuart Miller will be joined by a couple of our incredible accounting partners: Claire Markham, Managing Director at The Focus Collection, and Clare Bowen, Director at Monahans

In this session, taking place at Theatre 1 at 2pm on 30 November, our expert panel will explain how MTD for ITSA offers the chance for accountants and bookkeepers to deliver more value to clients and grow their practice, and offer tips for how you can make the transition as smoothly as possible. 

Check out stand D20 for so much more

While we’re so excited to host our panel and keynotes sessions, the highlight of these events is always taking the time to interact and speak with members of the accounting and bookkeeping community. 

We’ll be on our stand ready to say hello during the entire event, and there’ll even be a competition where you have a chance to win four tickets to see The Lionesses play at a home game, with accommodation and dinner included*. 

Why not head over to our stand to have a chat, grab some Xero-branded goodies, and find out more about how you can be in with a chance to win this amazing prize? We’ll also have Happy Hour at the stand at 3pm on day one, as well as freestyle football performances throughout the event. We can’t wait to see you there.
