Edit your Chart of Accounts to Suit the Business

You’ll learn how to modify the chart of accounts as well as business information including your credit trading terms, you’ll be able to change these terms in the course too.

Once you’ve created these items you’ll also learn how to make changes to them.

Creating a Quote and Invoice

MYOB Essentials enables you to create a quote while you are on the road or seeing clients. You’ll learn how to capture the clients requirements and record it straight away. This makes the information accurate and ensures you don’t miss anything because it will be fresh in your mind. Once the quote is created you’ll learn how to go and find historical quotes and convert to invoices to clients who’ve chosen to use the companies products and services.

Journal entries

Most of the above transactions are based on what’s called accrual accounting which means to keep track of money owed and money owing. At the end of each month you’ll learn how to perform a bank reconciliation and record transactions based on what is called cash accounting.

Wages, Assets Purchases, Depreciation and Correcting Mistakes

Cash based transactions include Spend Money Transactions, Receive Money Transactions and you’ll learn to perform the transactions that appear on your bank statement from automatic payments as well as to handle payroll on an adhoc basis based on individual payment transactions for things like wages, asset purchases, depreciation and incorrect transactions.

End of Month, Bank Recs and Journal Entries

A bank reconciliation is performed once all of the day-to-day transactions have been entered into your software (unless you’re doing what is called Rescue Work or Catchup Work). The purpose of this bank reconciliation is to ensure that your software data matches the information in the real world (ie. your bank account). In the MYOB Essentials Bank Reconciliation and Journal Entry Training Course we profile a small business startup.

The business owner lends the company money for cashflow, buys a car that needs to be depreciated, spends money on advertising and marketing to build awareness, makes some small sales and pays themselves a wage on an ad hoc basis depending on their bank balance.

These business include many trades and professional service organisations like Air conditioning, Plumbing, Building services, trades, Electricians, tilers, painters, audio visual, security and monitoring, pest control, landscape gardeners and more

The Course includes the MYOB Essentials training workbook with step-by-step tasks to compliment the educational videos. You’ll perform these steps using real life data.
