Welcome back!

We’re excited to have you rejoin us for the second week of this course. In the first week we explored accounting and some of the uses cashflows have for companies and individuals.

This week we will look at the use of software to better review and analyse data and how to leverage it in report making

There are many popular accounting softwares available for you to use and the all have very similar features. For the sake of this course we have decided to focus on one particular piece of software – Xero.

You will be asked to create your own profile and navigate the program as well as submit some exercises.
