The default Xero Invoice layout does not provide the required details from IRD to meet requirements for FamilyBoost.

https://www.ird.govt.nz/familyboost/early-childhood-education-providers


To meet this requirement we have the Xero FamilyBoost export that will format correctly.



Difference with this layout.

The *ContactName has been changed from the child name to the parent name.

The Reference field has changed to the child's name.


This will change the the 'To' / Contact within Xero to the name of the parent.
