Course testimonials:

  • said: I found the course very practical. We learnt bookkeeping both theory and we put this into practice with real business transaction examples ( using the correct accounting forms and tax calculations). The case study at the end was great as we were able to see the transactions of a small business and how they were processed in Accounts from start to finish. The tutor provided us with up to date accounting scenarios both in bookkeeping and for Tax/BAS. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and I would recommend it to anyone who’s looking to increase their accounting knowledge.
