One Xero account gives you access to dozens of company files

the perfect administrative executive assistant office manager learn online courses training

Many Xero beginners think that they only have 30 days to use the trial version of Xero but that isn’t actually correct. Xero, just like MYOB Business and QuickBooks online need you to create a “user” account and authenticate yourself using SMS or an authenticator app.

Once you’ve got your user account you are able to access dozens of different “company” files when you need to. This is how bookkeepers manage the company files for dozens of their own clients.

When is the best time to study? Early mornings or late nights?

circadian rhythm-hypothalamus Master Xero and MYOB using EzyLearn's unique short course modular format

I’ve been getting up at 5.15am for the last 2 years – am I crazy?!

I’ve been getting up early because I work out with some friends and prefer early mornings to late nights. This means that I’m going to bed earlier and not working as much at night.

In the past I preferred to work late into the night and pushed myself to get as much work done as I possibly could. Sometimes this meant working until midnight but I noticed that the quality of the work wasn’t always the best.

The sun rises pretty early and I’d rather work with the natural light of the day than the artificial light of the night. I dug a little deeper into this and discovered that there are studies that explains how we perform at various times of the day and how that is affected by when we get up and go to bed – Circadian Rhythms.

Circadian Rhythms can affect how well you perform when studying too..

Who Really Needs Phone Support These Days?

Who wants to wait for phone support for myob and xero course frustrated by waiting on the phone, lady sml

When I first took EzyLearn online in 2007 I was concerned at how much phone support students would need. What I learnt was the better the user experience and course design for our students the less calls we’d get.

Our team have been exploring ways of bringing the cost of our courses down even further in this tough economic environment and one of the biggest cost savings is to focus on SMS, Email and Website Chat support.

We have a number of graduates who are available as tutors and perhaps this could be an option, what do you think?

Competing with Udemy for Micro Skills Training Courses in Xero

Compare Online Training Courses to learn how to use Xero - 2 Udemy vs EzyLearn

The end of the calendar year, school holidays, summer and Christmas all combine to give us all a break from what we’ve been doing all year. It’s also a time for reflection about what we’ve done during the year and of things we would change in the new year.

One of the challenges we faced this year was trying to explain the differences between our training courses and those provided by dozens of new training options which are now available – even Youtube!

Udemy is a particularly interesting challenge because they are not a training company but a Learning Management System that also spends money advertising some of the courses on their platform.

Xero Boast Top Innovator in “AFR BOSS Most Innovative list”, Just Behind Telstra!

Xero wrote about their AI achievements using machine learning to predict the name and account code for your transactions when performing a bank reconciliation. Bank feeds have been a constant and regular theme in Xero’s marketing and this reinforces how they are using technology to reduce the time it takes to reconcile.

It makes sense that a bank like NAB or CBA buys MYOB because if you could automatically make sure that your finances in your MYOB or Xero software reflected exactly what your bank statements say you’d eliminate half the work that junior bookkeepers do.

Bills to Pay, Past or Future, Xero or CBA

Xero-Analytics-Plus-is-a-paid-subscription-for-Short-Term-Cashflow-Projection-Online-Bookkeeping-Training-Courses-Certification-in-Xero

I was reading about some of the accounting features that Xero are building on in their software while also testing out Commonwealth Banks “Upcoming bills and payments”. What really struck me is how quickly the major banks are updating their software and systems to help small business owners manage their cashflow better.

When you use the Commbank App to access your account you can quickly setup the Upcoming bills and payments because the banks software sees that you have recurring payments that seem to happen every month, quarter, year etc. The great thing about this is that it helps you understand your liabilities in the short term and you don’t need to pay anything extra to have it or use it.

Xero on the other hand are constantly finding ways to increase their revenue and new features is naturally one BIG way they can do that. But it’s not all bad, of course.

Xero Bookkeeping using Value-Based Pricing – Learn from your kid & their chores

Weekly and Daily Chores for Kids using Value-based rewards - Online Microsoft Excel Training Courses

I participated in an interesting project this week that clearly defined Performance Based Pricing. It came about because paying a flat wage just didn’t produce the desired outcome. Let’s just say that the kids didn’t complete all their chores and their mum got tired of paying pocket money while having to chase them up every day – sound familiar?

Xero have always promoted Performance Based Pricing (also known as Value-based pricing) as the best way to run a bookkeeping business but have the flexibility to operate your own hours. It’s based on paying for outcomes rather than time. It encourages workers to use technology to be more productive.

Microsoft Excel & Xero Bookkeeping COMPLETE Training Course Package is Now Here

Training Course ad in Manly Daily for Microsoft Excel, Website Design, MYOB - Ezylearn

You may be asking WHY it has taken us so long to create this training course COMBINATION package considering that Xero and Excel go hand in hand for all things financial and accounting?!

Xero is fantastic for keeping track of all of your financial transactions for a business and Microsoft Excel is still the preferred choice by most bookkeepers and accountants for producing reports and working with the data that comes out of Xero.

The versatility of Excel as a spreadsheet means that you can do so much more with it than just make sense of the financial information from your Accounting software. One case study in our Microsoft Excel Courses comes from our own experience about scheduling courses, trainers and training rooms for enrolments when we had a training centre in Dee Why NSW.

What % of expenses can you claim to reduce your taxable income?

Working from home and claiming expenses using Xero & MYOB software training courses

We’ve received lots of training course inquiries from new business in this last couple of months and a question that came up recently was “do you have a course that explains how much I can claim”. The person was asking about how much of the cost of their car can they claim as an expense because they use it for their business.

The answer to this question reminded me of how “flexible” the taxation laws are in Australia. You can “claim” any amount that you want and unless you are audited by the ATO you could possibly get away with it!!

The correct way is to determine how much of your costs are actually associated with your business and use that percentage. The ATO goes on to explain how to do this in detail.
