How to Handle Your Financial Transition To Enrolmy While Using Xero.

Scenarios
  1. You want to integrate your Xero Organisation with your Enrolmy Account
  2. You want to implement a financial process.
This document assumes the following.
  • You are a proficient user of Xero Accounting Software.

  • You understand accounting principles

Financially Transition Your Organisation to Enrolmy Using Xero

Before integrating your Xero Account with Enrolmy, you need to decide which financial transition process your business will work through below. Enrolmy's financial transition processes are set to ensure that...

  • Your customers can anticipate where and how they will see their outstanding bill.
  • Your administrators or accountants know the steps they need to take, to manage debtor or credited contacts. 

Initial Enrolmy Balance

Shared Enrolmy Balance

Bring all balances into Enrolmy: Invoices and credits in Xero are bought across to Enrolmy so that the Enrolmy and Xero balance for each customer match.

Best if...

  • Small debtors balance in Xero
  • Less than 100 bill-payer contacts in Xero
  • All/few outstanding debtors are within 90 days owing

Outcome: You should understand how to manage moving your Xero debtor information onto Enrolmy Software, and why this needs to happen.

Work with Xero and Enrolmy side-by-side: Enrolmy-generated invoices and credits notes generated after a chosen date; sync from Enrolmy to Xero. Enrolmy will not recognise contact history inside Xero prior to the chosen date. 

Best if...

  • Large debtors balance in Xero
  • More than 100 bill-payer contacts in Xero
  • All/many outstanding debtors are overdue 90 days owing

Outcome: You should understand how to manage your debtors on Enrolmy and Xero simultaneously.

 

Update Your CRM

Both financial transition processes require your customer's information to be stored inside your Enrolmy CRM first. You can choose too...

1. Undergo Enrolmy's Best Practice method of promoting your activities this way.

2. Or import your customer database

 

Initial Enrolmy Balance Shared Enrolmy Balance

Bring Balances into Enrolmy

Once your billpayer’s contact information is up to date in Enrolmy, you can then bring their balance from Xero, over to Enrolmy.

  • Reference on the new Enrolmy invoice and credit notes must include OPENING BALANCE.

  • Invoice/Credit note creation date must align with/or be dated after the earliest possible sync date in your Xero Integration section.

Process To Bring Over Debtor Information

  1. Inside Enrolmy: Create one new invoice that accounts for all of the billpayers outstanding invoices that are within Xero.

    + Invoice line items should reference the relative Xero invoice number.

2. Inside Xero: Delete all awaiting payment invoices related to the billpayer, to get rid of them in Xero. If some invoices for the billpayer are partially paid then go to step 4 instead.
 
3. Inside Xero: OR Create one credit note in Xero and apply to all the billpayers outstanding invoices. 
 

Process To Bring Over Creditor Information

Do not bring over any payment or credit detail Bring over credit notes Bring over credit notes/overpayments/prepayments
The Enrolmy Integration with Xero will enable you to apply Xero-generated credit notes, overpayments and direct payments against your Enrolmy invoices. Therefore you do not need to bring over any payment or credit detail into Enrolmy.

1. In Enrolmy: Create one new credit note that accounts for all outstanding credit notes, overpayments and prepayments for a billpayer in Xero.

+ Credit note line items should reference the relative credit notes from Xero.

1. In Enrolmy: Create one new credit note that accounts for all outstanding credit notes, overpayments and prepayments for a billpayer in Xero.

+ Credit note line items should reference the relative credit notes from Xero.

  2. In Xero: Mark existing credit notes for this billpayer as refunded to wash them up.

2. In Xero: Create one invoice in Xero that totals the amount of all outstanding credit notes, overpayments and prepayments for a billpayer. 

  3. In Xero: All prepayments and overpayments for existing contact need to be assigned to new Enrolmy contact (if contact is not merged)

3. In Xero: Open and credit the invoice with the Xero-generated credit notes, overpayments and prepayments.


Undergo a Xero Sync

To finalise the changes you have made for your billpayer you will need too...

1. Launch a Xero Sync. See how to do that here.

2. Within Xero you will now have two contacts for the same billpayer. Merge the Xero contact details of the billpayer into the Enrolmy version of the billpayer. See how to merge Xero contacts here.
