Personal and Business accounts

Started by John Lessnau -   in Accounting

I have all my business accounts in Xero and love how easy it is to reconcile and track these accounts.

I currently have my personal accounts in Quicken but it is so much more difficult to maintain.

I was thinking it would be great to add my personal bank accounts and CCs to Xero so they can be easily tracked and maintained.

There is no co-mingling between accounts. I would only want to do this to use xero's feature with my personal accounts.

Bad idea? I suppose it would mess up my balance sheets and other important reports for business tax times.

I guess the proper solution would be to have two xero accounts - one business and the other personal but then I have yet another monthly bill...
