Where do I start?

We suggest you have the Xero demo company open alongside the online training you’re about to access below. That way you get to work with live data and get a feel for the Xero interface, all at the same time.

About the demo company

Xero’s demo company contains fictional data so you can try out Xero immediately, without having to add your own organisation and enter your own data. It has almost all the features of an actual Xero organisation, except for automatic bank feeds and the ability to invite other users.

To use the demo company, you just need  a Xero login.

You can add new transactions and data to the demo company, but they’ll be deleted when the demo company resets itself after 28 days. You can also manually reset the demo company at any time to remove any data you’ve added. If you use Xero Accounting for iOS or Android, the demo company resets once you close the app.

Although anyone with a Xero login can use the demo company, only you can see any data or transactions you’ve added.


How do I access the demo company?

Simply follow the instructions below and you’re good to go.
