Advanced Xero Course Contents Outline

Xero Accounting Training Course 516 follows the scenario and case study featured in our Xero Advanced Course GST, Reporting and BAS Course (Course 514) by expanding on the sample company scenario for an extra quarter for BAS and Reporting purposes.

In Xero Advanced Certificate Course 516 you’ll learn how to import the bank transactions (rather than enter them manually that we teach in the Xero Beginners Daily Transactions “Essentials” Training Course) and manage the many and varied transactions that our typical entrepreneur, Jerry, enters into, for instance:

  • getting a commercial building loan
  • buying a commercial property
  • completing a real estate agents’ course (because he’s changing business direction and running several enterprises at the same time).
