Converting Into an Upgraded Ledger Existing Xero Subscription

Converting Into an Upgraded Ledger Existing Xero Subscription

This is our Beta release of this product and is only available to Accountants and Bookkeepers. Businesses will need to go through their external Accountant/Bookkeeper who is a certified Xero Partner.

Background Information 

This service is where we add up to two years of transactional history to an existing Xero ledger which has been used previously just for tax lodgement purposes.

Terms & assumptions:

  1. Currently only available in Australia - please reach out to for your interest in other regions.
  2. Xero Subscription type: The ledger subscription will be upgraded prior to conversion by the Accountant/Bookkeeper. Please note that invoice/bill/bank transactions limits on the Xero package apply to our conversions for the entire amount of data converted. 
  3. 2023 FY is complete: We assume during this Beta release that 2023 FY has been completed in Xero and Jet Convert will add transactional data from the 01/07/2023. The exception to this is where Invoices/bills dated prior to 01/07/2023 were unpaid and are required for a complete conversion. A journal will be entered to bring 2023 Accounts back into alignment with the provided source data file and details on the journal made available via the post conversion Action Checklist. We recommend that this is reviewed by the Accountant/Bookkeeper post conversion in Xero.
  4. Payroll: You will receive payroll setup up to 50 employees.
  5. Chart of Accounts: Ensure that the Xero Subscription contains a Chart of accounts with the correct Tax Type. If you have created the Bank in the Ledger as an current asset and not a bank during the conversion process you will have the ability to bring across the bank account from the source file as a bank and you can transfer the balance from the prior current asset account to bring the bank balance into alignment. As part of the conversion process you will be given to map the source file Chart of Accounts into the Xero Chart of Accounts, or add them as additional Accounts if required.
  6. Jobs/Classes/CategoriesThe same limits will apply to our current conversion packages. If your source file exceeds these limits we will ask you during the conversion process if you would like to include them and the associated cost.
  7. Bank Feeds: Preferably not connected however if they are they should NOT be reconciled until post conversion.
  8. Conversion Balances: Will not be added as part of the conversion. Jet Convert will rely on the conversions balances in the Xero Ledger and add the movement transactions from the 01/07/2023.
