Xero Tip: Use the Built In Calculator – Very Handy

A quick Xero Tip – you can use Xero’s calculator to make simple arithmetic calculations – add, subtract multiplication and division.

On any number field in Xero you can enter a simple formula on the fly – very handy.

Lets look at a quick example. We have a service item and we want to charge our normal fee of $1000 plus an uplift of 25% – we enter 1000*1.25.

But we also want to give them a $100 discount so in the discount section we enter 100/1250*100 to arrive at a discount %.

The discount will show at the bottom of the invoice.
