Have you heard the news? Accountex – the leading accounting and finance event in the UK and Europe – is heading down under next month for the first time ever. Between 15 to 16 March, advisors from across the country will descend on Sydney’s International Convention Centre (ICC) for two days of learning, collaboration and connection. And Xero will be right amongst the action!
We’re super excited to be a part of the inaugural Accountex Australia event. You’ll find us in the exhibitor hall under the big blue stand, and on stage where we’ll discuss industry trends, challenges and opportunities (more on this below). But above all, we’re most looking forward to catching up with our partner community in person. Keen to join us there? Read on to learn more about what you can expect from this world-class event – you won’t want to miss it.
Benchmark your practice and uncover growth opportunities
Xero recently launched its new State of the industry report, offering a unique snapshot of Australia’s advisory world. In a special Accountex keynote, I’ll be presenting some key takeaways from the research, covering topics like digitalisation, the future of work and the skills shortage.
I’ll also be joined on stage by some special guests – Xero partners Sarah Lawrance of Hot Toast and Zac Hayes of the Business and Wealth Collective. Together, we’ll unpack the report findings and share stories and tips to help you build a stronger, more adaptable practice that moves with the times.
Catch this session on Wednesday 15 March at 12:40pm AEDT in the ICC’s Thinkers Theatre. For more details, including the full agenda, head to the Accountex Australia website.
Learn practical ways to build a creative culture
Amidst an industry-wide skills shortage, many practices are struggling to hire experienced talent. So it’s no surprise that cultivating the right team environment is crucial to attracting (and retaining) employees; the challenge is how.
This is exactly what we’ll cover on day two at the Accountex main stage – practical steps to building a creative culture. Loretta Woollard, Xero’s Head of Commercial Operations for Australia and Asia, will join a panel of thought leaders to discuss ways to inspire, motivate and engage teams. For anyone looking to grow their firm in 2023, this’ll be one session not to miss.
Ask the experts about eInvoicing and transitioning to STP Phase 2
With the fourth (and final) step of Xero’s Single Touch Payroll Phase 2 roll out now available to all, it’s crunch time to complete the transition before the 31 March deadline. The good news? The Xero team will be on hand at Accountex to answer your questions and help you and your clients make the move. In the meantime, check out our Resource Hub and the STP Phase 2 comprehensive guide for all the finer details.
What’s more, we’ll also be there to talk all things eInvoicing – the safer and more secure way to send and receive invoices electronically, directly between accounting systems (via the secure Peppol Network). With just a few clicks, we can help you register in Xero and become an eInvoicing convert. Find us at our blue stand to chat about all of the above (and more), or simply drop by to say hello.
Bag the swag with a game of cornhole
Be in to win with Xero’s very own rendition of cornhole. The aim of the game is to score as many points as possible for a chance to take home some trademark Xero merch. Why not try your luck (and skills), and have some fun while you’re at it!
With just three weeks to go until Accountex Australia kicks off, the countdown is on. Head to the Accountex website today to get your hands on a ticket– we can’t wait to see you there.
