When you import a Xero company into Fathom, your company’s Chart of Accounts will automatically be brought into Fathom. You can import a maximum of 3000 accounts and up to 8 years of monthly data.
Importing your financials from Xero
To add a company from Xero into Fathom and import financial data:
After authorising access, Fathom will begin to import your financial data (Profit & Loss and Balance Sheet). The import should not take more than a few minutes. Once completed, you will see your Xero company listed on the 'My Companies' screen in Fathom.
