6 Advanced Bookkeeping Cashflow Reporting, Budgets & ROI

Business scenarios, Strategies, Cashflow Reporting, Setting Budgets and Understanding Return on Investment

Course Contents Outline

The Advanced Bookkeeping Administration Course follows the scenario and case study featured in our GST, Reporting and BAS Course by expanding on the sample company scenario for an extra quarter for BAS and Reporting purposes.

In this course you’ll learn how to import the bank transactions (rather than enter them manually that we teach in the 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).

Course Completion Time: 8 Hours
