Xero has reported a tripling of its income from subscriptions to its hosted accounting software in its results for the year to March 31, released today.
In a statement to the NZ Stock Exchange, Xero announced that revenue from subscriptions was up 229 per cent to $3.158 million, compared with $959,000 for the previous year.
