FAQs

Who is eligible for the partner marketing funds?

Accounting practices who are Silver, Gold and Platinum Xero partners in Asia are eligible for this programme. Learn more about the benefits of the Xero Partner Programme here.

What am i entitled to?
Depending on your partner status, you will be entitled to marketing funds for Xero-approved marketing activities and events.

  • Silver partners can claim up to USD$500 per annum for approved marketing activities
  • Gold partners can claim up to USD$5,000 per annum for approved marketing activities
  • Platinum partners can claim up to USD$10,000 per annum for approved marketing activities

Additionally, all Silver, Gold and Platinum partners will be entitled to USD$200 per quarter for approved events only.

What is the difference between the event fund and the marketing fund?
The event fund is provided on a quarterly basis and covers only the costs of venue rental and food catering specific to the event. Your suppliers’ invoices will be reimbursed in full with a limit of USD$200 per quarter.

The marketing fund is provided on a yearly basis and covers all approved online and offline marketing activities that your team has planned to promote your status as a Xero partner.

Your suppliers’ invoices will be reimbursed on a dollar-for-dollar basis with a limit that applies based on your partner status.

Eg. Business A has conducted a workshop that promotes their service as a Xero partner. They booked an event room and have catered for food and beverages to be served during the event.

Additionally, they have also engaged a marketing agency to design and print brochures to be distributed at this workshop. After the event, Business A can claim reimbursement for the following from Xero:

  1. Booking of event room + food and beverage = As part of quarterly event fund
  2. Marketing agency’s fees to design and print the relevant marketing materials = As part of annual marketing fund

What are the approved marketing activities?
The Xero partner marketing fund covers your marketing activity including but not limited to:

  • Digital & social activities, such as Facebook ads & digital billboard advertising
  • Newspaper & magazine articles, such as Industry publications
  • Mass media advertising, such as Radio & TV
  • Editorial, such as content writing
