All businesses need to process payments to suppliers and receive payments from customers; this flow of money needs to be organised, processed and recorded in a professional transparent manner so that appropriate people can verify payments that have been made or received. The key to the process is to have a systematic approach and to carefully use accounting software to record all transactions.


This training program will teach you as much as possible about the theory, but you really learn by doing it in a real business situation and using accounting software and real invoices.
