QuickBooks was once the great competitor to MYOB when accounting software started to become popular years ago. Back then, MYOB beat QuickBooks (distributed on CD’s in retail boxes by Reckon) to become the most popular accounting software in Australia. However, in this era of cloud-based software & services, the tables have turned, and small business people will find there are many more options available to them than MYOB.
Just like our MYOB training courses (and Xero courses), our online QuickBooks Course will take you through several different scenarios; we adapt the same accounting scenarios we use in our proven and popular MYOB and Xero courses to our new QuickBooks Online Daily Transactions Course.
Intuit QuickBooks Course Online Daily Transactions (Course 522)
This course is ideal for any organisation or business, small or large, which sells products. It is also ideal for people selling services to do with these same products. This might include tradespeople (electricians, mechanics, plumbers, carpenters, painters, bakers and chefs, hairdressers, occupational therapists — the list goes on). QuickBooks is often preferred by bookkeepers and accountants employed to work with numerous small businesses.
In terms of our Online Daily Transaction Course, you will start the process by performing a simple purchase and payment for office cleaning services. From there you’ll delve into purchases of inventory items. Before purchasing inventory items, you will need to create them and enter the information that will later be used, not only buy them wholesale, but also to sell them to your customers.
Course Duration: 12 hours

Intuit QuickBooks Online GST, Reporting & BAS Training Course (course 524)
The Xero GST, Reporting & BAS Training Course is included in the Advanced Bookkeeping Certificate and builds on the Xero Bank Reconciliation Course.
It explores a full quarter worth of transactions using a case study which features a budding entrepreneur and we’ve chosen this case study because it enables us to include transactions that make GST and BAS reporting tricky; including:
- purchases which are GST-free,
- those which have partial GST, or are
- international payments.
- varying GST Transactions
The course includes capital purchases (a vehicle) and includes the different costs of running a vehicle should be treated, as well as expenses like entertainment; when FBT applies and an introduction to Payroll where you’ll explore how various aspects of wages are treated in the BAS.
Payroll Administration Introduction
You’ll explore how to manage ad-hoc wages where a small business pays it’s directors/owners and some casual staff on an adhoc basis. This is common with small consulting and service based businesses where the hours worked each week can vary depending on worrkload or projects. At the end of a quarter (or month) the liabilities and Superannuation guarantee as well as other employment obligations can be calculated on a spreadsheet based upon PAYG Schedules which are available from the ATO and you’ll learn how to do that.
You’ll learn how to enter these payments and transactions and be able to include expenses, liabilities and more in the end of quarter reporting.
This course includes transactions which relate to a director lending money to the businesses and you’ll see how a transfer of assets and liabilities work from the transaction and coding side to the financial reporting side.
BAS Report and PAYG Reporting
After correctly coding all of these transactions, you’ll:
- set up the Financial Settings of a Business in Xero with regard to the GST registration (Cash vs Accrual and quarterly vs monthly).
- run a BAS report, which is combined with our specially-designed “Ad Hoc Payroll” Excel spreadsheet case study calculations in order to work out the final liabilities.
Decisions Based on Financial Reports
As you progress through this course you’ll see the results of the business owners ‘change of strategy’ and focus for the business. You’ll see what these results look like at the end of the quarter, as well as month-by-month comparisons of Profit and Loss and Balance Sheet reports.
Apart from performing all of a businesses compliance requirements, decision making is one of the biggest reasons for business to maintain detailed records and use computerised accounting software.
At the end of the course you’ll explore how the business owner can use the information in the reports to change the direction of the business, as well as how he will be able to configure their software to obtain even better reports at the end of the next quarterly reporting period.
