Not exactly. You have options
1) email it to your xero files email then you can attach it to a bill or invoice

2) use hub doc a xero owned add on which you can use to organise bills it should read and populate a new invoice for you. TBH I tried it and found it too much of a faff

3) Use Ezzybills this is a separate add on which you pay for that I use. You email the bill to your Ezzybills account. It then uploads it as a draft into xero. It learns what you do and most of the time populates the draft correctly. You then check and approve it. It’s simple

I would say if you are new to xero start by emailing direct to your xero files and learn that system first. It doesn’t read the bill but it’s a handy way to put attachments onto bills etc. As an example if I do a finance agreement for a machine I attach all the documents on the vat invoice. This way when the accountant sees the invoice he has all he needs for the tax etc without asking me for any physical paper.

I just found hub doc a faff for no gain. It could well have been me, it seemed to duplicate stuff Xero was already doing.

With Ezzybills I just email the bill pdf to Ezzybills and it uploads it as a draft. It is very good at putting the right codes in the invoice lines. The more you do the more it learns. Although there are a few things it doesn’t like. Bills that are also a statement can be rejected, my AMC statements I just send straight to Xero files it’s less hassle. Hand written bills I tend to do manually. One of my machinery dealers changed their logo on the invoices. The business name is now in a curve and Ezzybills cannot recognise it. It’s easily corrected in the draft.

Mole valley don’t make things simple, their pdf invoices have a password to view. Ezzybills can’t do this so I have to open them and then print to pdf and email to Ezzybills. It’s a faff, I complain every time I speak to anyone at mole valley, apparently it’s the GDPR rules


Im used to the system now and it saves me a lot of time so I’m keeping using them
