  • You'll need access to Kashflow in order to complete the assignment

  • In lecture 1 - we show you where to download the software.

Kashflow Online Bookkeeping course is about how to use Kashflow software based on the most popular functions which you as a Kashflow operator needs to know how to use, in order to be proficient in using the software.

The learning is structured in a practical way. You are given a practical scenario assignment. There are various tasks to complete. You are given the task to do and have a go at, and then the video answer is available. It is suggested that you:

  1. Read the task
  2. Watch the video
  3. Have a go at it yourself on your own system
  4. Rewatch the video (if necessary) - to reinforce the learning

You’ll learn how to set up the Kashflow system from scratch, how to enter opening balances, post customer invoices and credit notes, post supplier bills and credit notes, pay suppliers, petty cash, prepare a VAT return, reconcile the bank, post journals, run reports amongst over things.

This is a useful course if:

  • You are thinking of working with the software,
  • You are going for jobs which have a requirement for you to be able to use this software
  • You want to put this skill on your CV, or
  • You are a bookkeeper or accountant and will be using this for clients or even
  • You run your own business and want to know how to use Kashflow for yourself.

You will be given access to Kashflow (free for 14 days).

The course materials includes the handout of the assignment task.

Successful completion of the course is the equivalent to being at the level of having a level 2 certificate in computerised accounts.

The course will take about 3-4 hours to complete.

Kashflow (if you are a user) does some very odd things. It has been known for the Trial Balance not to balance which "should" actually be an impossibility for any decent accounts software. Likewise, you may find that things go 'missing' from the bank reconciliation statement (yet remain within the system). As a accounting software trainer for over a decade, having used more than 20 different bookkeeping software out there - it wouldn't be a system I'd recommend, and I'd strongly suggest you get help if you are using this software because you won't be able to figure it out and sometimes it could be "technical" fault (i.e. an error on their end) and absolutely nothing to do with you, or what you've entered. So don't bang your head on the computer. You may just want to switch software instead...

Who is the target audience?
  • Bookkeepers and Accountants who will be using this for their clients
  • Students who are going for jobs where the requirement is working knowledge of Kashflow
  • Those who have studied accounting, but want practical knowledge of how to use a popular accounting software which will help them find employment
  • Previous knowledge of accounting is not presumed or required
