You’ll also learn about relationships between these terms, such as how the Chart of Accounts, General Ledger, and Trial Balance relate to each other.

Reporting and Tax Obligations

Other reporting aspects you’ll learn include how the Cash and Accrual accounting Methods impact BAS, what income and expense types to report the ATO, Journal Entries, and debits and credits
