Sick of waiting to get paid? Invoice payment terms can help you get paid faster

There are few things more frustrating than having completed a client’s job, only to find yourself doing even MORE work to get them to pay you!

I recently made this video with the Xero Video Team to explain how you can use invoice payment terms to help you get paid faster.


When should you hire an accountant?

When I was running my publishing company, I used my (sadly, rather inept) accountant exactly five times: once to set me up on my accounting software — a disaster through-and-through — and once a year for the four years to do our taxes.

If I had known then what I know now (businesses that use accountants regularly grow their profits 23% faster!), I would have made an effort to find an accountant that was a much better fit, and I would have consulted them far more frequently.

Here’s a video I made recently for Xero that goes over the critical times when it’s a good idea to hire an accountant.
