Week 2 – Certified Xero Advisor

In my second week at Rebecca Beaton Accountancy Services I have begun to develop more skills that are important in accounting.

I was enrolled on a xero advisor certification course in which I had to participate in two online classes where I was taught about all the important and useful features on xero. After each class I had to complete an assessment on what I had learnt in the class in which I had to achieve a score of 80% or above to pass. I was successful in these assessments and I am now a certified xero advisor and have a good knowledge of what I can do on xero.

On Wednesday I went into North Lindsey college where I also got started on using accounting software. The course as well as college has helped me improve my knowledge of accounting software. I have also started to use receipt bank and tax filer more which will help me as I am beginning to learn what each software is used for and why they are important. I have learnt that receipt bank is a great way to track and prepare clients transactions ready to be forwarded to xero.
