Preferred Exporter

Any policy admin can export to Xero, but only the preferred exporter will see reports that are ready for export in their Inbox.

Reimbursable expenses

Export to Xero as bills awaiting payment with the following additional settings:

  • Bill date — either the report's submitted date, the report's exported date, or the date of the last expense on the report (set in the Export tab)

Non-reimbursable expenses


Non-reimbursable expense (such as company card transactions) export to Xero as bank transactions with one transaction per line-item (expense) created in the bank account of your choice.

If you are centrally managing your company cards through Domain Control, you can export expenses from each individual card to a specific account in Xero (detailed instructions here).
