Xero is a cloud-based accounting software platform that enables you to track your finances, manage invoices, and reconcile accounts.

Within Teamwork, you can export an invoice from a project as a Xero-compatible file.

This Xero integration is no longer available for new connections.

The feature will remain for those who have used it in the past and are currently connected to a Xero organization via a Teamwork project.

You can check out Teamwork's invoice exporting options here.

Go to the Finance area of your project and select the Billing subsection.
