COURSE CODE 326


 

The Complete Bookkeeper. This course is aimed at those students serious about offering a bookkeeping and payroll service either form home or the office. It will take you everything you need to know from start to finish without the need to enrol onto seperate courses.

Starting with the ICB Level One Certificate students will gain all the basics required to before moving onwards. This is then followed by the ICB Level Two Certificate allowing students to further their knowledge and understand the requirements and procedures needed to offer a service to small companies.

Upon successful completion of the ICB courses students will be introduced to Sage 50 and the benefits this can bring. Once students have the understanding of the bookkeeping procedure Sage software can add a whole new dimension to their education. By dramatically speeding up the process this will allow students to deal with more clients therefore increasing their earnings potential. Completed over three levels followed by online examination after each level.

Once this is finished students will continue through to becoming fully competent with operating Sage Payroll. This can add another avenue for income when offering a service as companies do like to use one person to tend to the books and payroll. We have received so many calls form students in the past who have completed their bookkeeping exams only to be asked by their new clients if they can also do the payroll. Why turn clients away. Get it right first time and reap the benefits.

There are two levels to becoming fuly competent with Sage Payroll followed by online examination after each level.
