What is the course structure?
The course begins by showing you how to get started with Xero by signing up with a fake Australian company.
For the rest of the course, we use both the fake company and Xero’s built-in demo company to complete each of the lessons.
This means you put can into practice everything you learn as we go along in the course.
What will I learn from this course?
First, we sign up to Xero Australia and open a Xero file in the name of a fake business.
Using the fake company, we run through the initial settings you will need to set up such as GST tax rates, users, email settings and more.
We then spend some time covering contacts, the chart of accounts, and tracking categories in case you want to set these up from the beginning.
We then switch to the demo company and spend a few hours learning about how to set up and manage:
Invoices and sales
Bills and purchases
Products and Services (Inventory)
Next, we will dive into the payroll section of Xero and learn how to pay your employees without having to use a separate payroll system. You will learn many things such as how to add employees and how to pay wages directly from Xero.
Finally, you will learn how to prepare and check your Activity Statements (BAS and IAS) in Xero. You will also learn how to lodge your returns directly from Xero to the ATO, which makes the process a lot easier!
Once you have finished this course, you should be able to manage the accounts in Xero Australia for your business or for your clients’ business with ease.

Hi I'm Mark and I'm excited to be your instructor!
During my career as a qualified accountant I have been told many times that I am good at explaining things. I believe this is because I enjoy breaking down big problems into small parts and teaching people from the ground up.
I know from experience that it is always best to teach the basics first. Once my students have a solid foundation to build on, I can move on to the harder lessons. I love watching my students go from complete novices to experts who can confidently use their new skills in real life.
I also know from experience that students learn better when they actively follow tutorials or complete practical tests at the end of each lesson, which is one of the reasons I love Udemy courses.
There is no better way to learn than by doing.
My courses have been designed along those principles to give you the best chance possible of becoming a subject expert.
I hope my courses help you learn what you need to know to reach your full potential.
