This LEARN XERO IN A DAY Course will take you from beginner level to knowing your way around and being comfortable using Xero in just a day.
In the video lessons I show you step by step how everything is done in Xero.  You can watch the videos, then follow what I have shown you, always having the option to refer back to the videos at any time.
After welcoming you and introducing to Xero you will be shown how to register for a free 30-day trial.  You will then be shown how to setup your Xero account properly before getting started.

We then cover the following sections which every business will benefit from knowing about:
•Sales – designing, creating, sending, copying, amending, deleting
•Purchases – entering, coding, attaching backup, copying, amending, deleting
•Quotes – setting up, creating, sending, accepting, converting to sales invoices
•Purchase Orders – creating, sending, converting to purchase invoices
•Banking – setting up, linking, reconciling, importing, checking
•Reporting – reviewing, printing, downloading

The next sections are then more specialised and are optional:
•VAT – setting up, understanding, preparing and checking a VAT return
•Fixed Assets – setting up, tracking, depreciation
•Payroll – setting up, adding employees, pay runs, reporting and filing
And we finish off by reviewing what you have learned and what you should do next.
Throughout the course I share with you my expert knowledge having used Xero for over 7 years.  I also give you advice on how you can improve Xero in your business.

Teacher | Accountant | Numbers Lover |Entrepreneur
Hey there!
I’m Marion (or Maz) the Numbers Lover, dedicated to getting you to know and love your numbers as well.
With a background in accountancy and training (I’m a UK qualified accountant) I’ve spent my working life getting to grips with the numbers, and then explaining them to others.  Knowing and understanding your numbers has so many benefits.
Here’s how my Udemy courses can help you love your numbers …
Xero (Online Accounting Software)
Are you keen to use Xero, but not sure where to start?
Are you a frustrated Xero user, because you know that you are not using Xero to its full potential? 
Would you like to be your own boss, have flexible hours and earn a decent living as a Xero bookkeeper?
Then have a look at my courses on Xero.  As well as being a Xero Certified Advisor, I’m a qualified accountant and I’ve been running my own accountancy practice for over 6 years.  During that time I’ve seen all the pitfalls fro business owners as they try to tackle this ‘user friendly’ software without any expert guidance.  This can mean expensive accountancy bills sorting out the mess, and I’m here to ensure this doesn’t happen to you.
Personal Finance
Would you like some down-to-earth practical advice to help you get to grips with and improve your personal finances?
Then I’ve created the perfect hands-on course, guaranteed to get you results.
Are you a new business owner, not ready to sign up for software yet but needing help doing your own accounts?
Using Google Drive I can show you how.
I look forward to helping you love your numbers!
