Course description

Learn Bookkeeping and BAS preparation course in Sydney.

Do you have your own business with little knowledge of bookkeeping, employed in the accounts department or you simply want to brush up on your past knowledge? The Bookkeeping and BAS Preparation course will take you through the process of completing your own set of books and generate a number of financial reports as well as finalising your own BAS.

This Bookkeeping and BAS preparation Course includes a Case Study featuring a business, which will provide students with hands-on practical experience to finalise a set of books and finalise all necessary reports. You will also prepare a Business Activity Statement (BAS) in a relaxed and stress-free environment. A highly experienced accountant, BAS agent and trainer delivers the course.

The Bookkeeping and BAS Preparation course also helps you understand computerised accounting, although this is not covered in the course. Once completed, you may wish to enrol in MYOB V.19 Account Right Day-to-Day or continue doing your bookkeeping manually.

Please Note: completing this course will not provide you with the accreditation to become a BAS Agent.
