I use Freshbooks for my practice. There are a few small quirks, such as "Inventory" items not flowing from Freshbooks to Xero, thus the G/L account doesn't sync properly.

All invoices/lines and payments do flow.

i use freshbooks to track time spent with clients. I generate an invoice in Freshbooks - but it does not seem to add GST

when i import/synch the invoices in Xero for sending to the clients - the GST is not been added either ...

how can this be solved ??

One big hitch for us is the Item Codes don't sync, and once imported into Xero the system will not allow us to edit. In the very least, Xero should let us edit on the Xero side of things. Looking at other options but since Xero doesn't do PayPal business payments we can't use their invoicing so have to look for a different add on if we want to do proper tracking.

It also doesn't seem to want to sync payments when refreshed.
