How long does a conversion take?
Conversions can take up to 3 business days for MYOB desktop files and up to 5 business days for all other software types, but are usually faster than that. It will depend on the size of the database and the amount of data being converted.
How much history?
Xero subsidises the current and previous financial/fiscal year of transactional history including invoices with line item detail*. You can purchase additional data up to a total of 10 years if desired*.
Xero limits how far back we can go with conversion balances - the earliest we can start with full transactional history is from July 1 2006.

Can I convert my data into a 30-day free trial?
As part of the agreement with Xero, we don't offer free conversions into a Xero 30-day trial. You're welcome to start a trial or try the demo to see if Xero is right for you, and you can take advantage of this free conversion service if and when you're ready. We will create an Xero organization for you, so there is no need to set anything up in Xero yourself.
