    Do they have any plans to launch a US specific version?

    This would be a great addition to the lineup of SaaS accounting packages available for the US market. It seems as if Xero could rival QuickBooks online in terms of functionality, and beats it in terms of ease of use… A US specific version with Freshbooks integration (Basecamp integration too would be great) and US specific Sales Tax capabilities would be awesome…

    Brandan – my sources tell me that yes, a US version is in the works

    @Brandan – we have quite a few customers in the US going strong with the global version of Xero.

    Most of those US customers are switching over from Quickbooks.

    We’ve had some basic requests (like address formatting) that we’re adding.

    Some people are also requesting check printing, which we’re exploring.

    Since all those requests are globally relevant, we’ll be updating the global version to handle them.

    Signup for the global version – most likely it does everything you need and please let us know if there’s anything else you need.
