Why you need Backup for Xero?

Xero will do an excellent job keeping your data safe, but it can’t help if the problem originated from within your organisation. For example:

  • A new employee has deleted data in error or imported transactions wrongly
  • A disgruntled employee has wreaked havoc, sabotaging files and deleting contacts
  • An app you were trailing has pushed unwanted data into your accounting records or drastically altered contact details, records about deals or company data.

Ignoring the need for a third-party backup is a major gamble. Xero’s own Services Agreement states:“You must maintain copies of all data inputted into the service. Xero expressly excludes liability for any loss of data no matter how caused.”
