    Run Away!If you care about controls in your accounting system, don’t choose Xero. They don’t offer a SOC-1 report, which is standard in the industry (look it up, every SAS company should offer this and any respectable one does). If you are or ever plan to be a legitimate company, you will want to show your accounting system has proper controls, and you won’t be able to do this with Xero. Funny thing is, Xero doesn’t even care about its own business enough to produce a SOC-1 for its customers. When we asked that they produce this report, we got a flat no and were told the matter was closed. Overall, the cost would be nominal to Xero, which leaves you wondering if they could even pass. Our Big-4 audit firm would not accept their SOC-2 report as an alternative. Respect yourself as a company and move to a reputable accounting software solution. They are very difficult to communicate with (one question, answer, and follow-up will take a week or so). Very inefficient, and no access to anyone with any power to make a decision.
