Hi. How can we help?

About Lightspeed Accounting

Lightspeed Accounting is an integration that will plug into Lightspeed Retail and your accounting software and allow you to synchronize your bookkeeping information between the two. Once everything is connected and configured, your sales, payments, discounts, taxes, etc. will all sync to your desired accounting software, automatically, every morning.

Lightspeed Accounting is compatible with Average Cost accounts and does not support the First In, First Out cost method at this time.

It can integrate with the following accounting packages:

Windows macOS
QuickBooks Desktop 2015-higher QuickBooks Online
QuickBooks Online Xero
Xero Sage Business Cloud Accounting
Sage Business Cloud Accounting Exact
