There’s now a little over a month to go before old reports in Xero are retired. Our new reports are packed with powerful customisations that will help you get quick access to answers and streamline your financial analysis.
As you finish up your work in old reports and prepare for the big day, it’s a good idea to understand where you can find information on new reports and get support from our team if you need a hand.
|We’re retiring the older versions of our reports in Xero on 31 July 2023 at 6am NZST. In some time zones, this will mean that old reports will not be available from 30 July 2023. Remember: you’ll need to do your month-end reporting for July 2023 in new reports, as older versions won’t be available.|

Xero Central is our one-stop-shop for getting the support you need. It has a range of content to help answer your questions about Xero, including how-to articles, videos, community discussions and the option to raise a case with our customer experience team if you get really stuck.
Access support content
You can ask a question in the search bar of Xero Central or within Xero (click the question mark in the top right corner of Xero) and support articles will come up, based on what the search engine knows about you from your Xero account, or which page you’re on in Xero.
You can also check out the reporting playlist on our YouTube channel, to learn how to make the most of features available in new reports. You’ll learn how to use common formats, customise reports with the layout editor, manage reporting preferences, and more.
Get individual support
If your question is more complex and you need individual support, you can contact Xero support. Click on your ‘User profile’ in the top right corner, then select ‘My cases’ and ‘Contact Xero support’.
All you need to do is fill in the form, which is sent to our customer experience team. They will triage it and assign it to the next available specialist with the right skills (often a degree in accounting and expertise in reporting) to help you.
When you raise a case you can request a call, or we’ll ask for your phone number if we think talking to you directly will help. Our customer experience team is based in eight offices around the globe, meaning we can provide support 24/7.
