Once you’ve set up your Xero feed, each time we send you an invoice, a copy of your Z Business invoice data is fed directly into Xero. You can choose how your invoice displays in Xero, with all transactions fed through or just a summary. Your Z Business feed will appear in the “Bills to Pay” section under the Business menu with a description and an amount, ready for you to code and approve.

The feed won’t cost you a cent and there’s no change to how you currently pay your Z Business invoice – you just don’t have to manually enter your transactions into Xero yourself.

  • Draft invoices can be found in the ‘Bills to pay’ section of the ‘Business’ tab in Xero
  • There you will see draft invoices that are awaiting approval
  • These will follow the style you selected when you connected to Xero

If the balance of an invoice is negative, a credit note will be generated and viewable in Xero alongside the invoice

After connecting to Xero, data sync occurs automatically when the invoices are produced.

The mapping for each data item is as follows: Z Energy Contact (Z Business) is mapped to Contacts (Xero), Chart of Accounts (Xero) is mapped to Product Groups (Z Business), Invoices (Z Business) is mapped to Draft Invoices (Xero), Credit Notes (Z Business) is mapped to Credit Notes (Xero)

Unlike connecting to Xero, disconnecting can only be done in Xero itself.

  • When on your Xero page, click on the organisation name, select Settings, then click Connected Apps.
  • On the Connected tab, click Disconnect App next to the app you want to disconnect
  • Click Disconnect App to confirm
