Xero Course Contents Outline
Xero Course 516 follows the scenario and case study featured in our Xero GST, Reporting and BAS Course (Course 514) by expanding on the sample company scenario for an extra quarter for BAS and Reporting purposes.
In Course 516 you’ll learn how to import the bank transactions (rather than enter them manually that we teach in the Xero 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
In this Xero course we explore the typical overspending that some new entrepreneurs go through and understand how these transactions affect the cashflow of a business.
You’ll learn about the financing, operational and investment aspects of a cashflow statement and about alternative strategies that a business can take regarding its spending and credit risk management.
You’ll go through other Credit Management reports like Aged Receivables and understand the tools available to small businesses for:
- reigning in their accounts receivable
- getting money into their bank accounts quicker
- using their accounting software to help perform better marketing and operational management by budgeting and understanding their Return On Investment.

Property Investment Training
Property is an important asset class in Australia and several of our courses, case studies and exercise files are aimed at helping students get a handle of the various different aspects of managing finances to invest in property. We’ve also focused our examples on an affordable area for capital city property owners to invest in “relatively cheap” property in Newcaslte, Lake Macquarie and Central Coast of NSW.
