Clio + Xero

Enjoy peace of mind with Clio’s Xero integration. Categorize, connect and manage your firm’s financial information with ease. Sync invoices with precision into the rest of your firm’s financial activity. No manual data entry, post-sync editing or workarounds required. Supply accurate and up-to-date financial reports to regulatory bodies and remain compliant, with ease.

Client Expenses • Client expenses happen all the time. Now when a client accrues an expense all you have to do is create the expense in Clio Manage, and it will be reflected in an invoice in Xero.

Paying Invoices • Has a client recently paid an invoice? Has the status of an invoice in Clio Manage recently changed? Anytime the status of an invoice changes in Clio Manage, the same updates will be applied in Xero. No manual data entry, post-sync editing or workarounds required.

Seamless Legal Accounting • The Clio Manage and Xero integration means no longer having to sweat the small details — like applying taxes. Whenever you apply a tax to an expense category in Clio Manage, the same tax amount will be applied to the client invoice in Xero. You can also specify expense category and tax account codes in Clio Manage, and sync them to Xero.

Should be so good, but alas it is not. Synching is quite poor and only one-way (from Clio). There is no easy way to resolve sync errors. Some things, such as credit notes generated on Clio, are not properly dealt with by the time they show up in Xero and for Brits, this can mean that you end up paying more VAT than you should, if you rely on Xero to do the sums.

I love Clio but for the past month or more, invoices that I enter as paid in Clio do not show up as paid in Xero even though I get the message that Clio and Xero are synching. This appears to be a problem with Xero, not with Clio. It's getting frustrating since I have to then manually enter information for paid invoices into Xero when I chose Xero based on representations that Xero and Clio worked well together.

We have one client that uses Clio to invoice. The invoices sync over very well, but payments do not sync. We also need to use track codes according to which partner brought in the business. The client has determined the codes in Clio using the Client Reference Number, but these do not sync either. As far as client expenses on an invoice, they enter those in Clio, and then they sync into the COS account. So that works for them. Fixing those items that don't sync would be a great improvement! For now, we just use a workaround.
