Shows a complete lack of understanding

This app should be pulled. It is a scam. Because NZ is +12 GMT & Xero runs on GMT the payments are always out of sync so nothing will ever match. I spoke to Xero about this and they said they know about it, and basically suck it up and do it manually. When an app has 85% 1 star reviews you would think they would just pull it. MYOB has a way better intergration.
