So I'm a real fan of Xero now having been using it for several months across a number of my businesses. I am, however, a Westpac customer so until now have not been able to automate my statement data feeds.
This has now changed. Well done to the Xero team for finally getting Westpac sorted.
The sting in the tail though is that Westpac want to charge me $25 for setting this feature up.
This was noted by both Rowan and Ben commenting that Westpac just don't 'get it'.
I have already sent a *wild* please explain email to my bank manager and await a reply. To be honest Westpac have never really *got* small business. I remember the first time I applied for a mortgage was when I was running Kognition. They declined my application even though I had solid cashflow forecasts. The irony was that when I finally came to settle on the house I had the full purchase price actually sitting in the business account (it was a small house in Dunedin... don't go getting any ideas of vast wealth...).
So Westpac. Sort your shit out!
I'll post any updates here... But have every intention to throw my toys over this one...
