    “In New Zealand it is available to BNZ customers and Xero business customers”.

    Exclusive licensing cutting out a chunk of the market. Sigh.

    “Is that it?” Only for now! Ben, thanks for your feedback, and yes, this first release is about getting the core features launched, a base from which we plan to build on in future releases with the innovative features and usability for which Xero is known.

    On your point on business expenditure on a personal credit card, the goal was to make it quick and easy to get the receipt in Xero Business as a claim at the time you were reviewing all your Personal transactions.  As always, we’ll be taking all of our user feedback on board and implementing any improvements required in future releases.

    Thanks for the support, we agree with you that we have what it takes to do it right 🙂

    Thanks @Sara – appreciate the feedback
    @Bruce – BNZ owns a big chunk of Xero, you don’t think perhaps we’re seeing a result of the influence that ownership brings???
