What are the Computerised Bookkeeping Courses?

In Computerised Accounting, the course introduces computers and different accounting software to record, store and to process financial data. The utilisation of this software comes along with many advantages that are not available to analogue accounting systems.

We do not consider Excel sheets as an alternative for proper accounting software to process accounting data. Using excel spreadsheets does not provide a scalable explanation of the information for accounting purposes, and therefore this is an unsafe solution.

How was the Bookkeeping in the past?

Previous to the implementation of computers and software for accounting purposes, the Bookkeeping for small businesses typically began by putting entries into journals. Journals are "the books of unique entry". Bookkeeping minimises the amount of time and effort spent in writing the accounting entries in a general journal, and in particular formats of journals or daybooks were introduced. They consisted of an individual or specialised journals such as; sales journal, a purchases journal, cash receipts journal, and cash payments journal.

In the past, the company's transactions were entering in the journals following date order. The amounts used in the Journals were posting to the selected accounts located in the general ledger. Examples of General ledger include Cash, Sales, Loans Payable, Rent Expense, Wages Expense etc. The intention was each account's balance, and the company may also have supplementary ledgers for accounts such as Accounts Receivable.

Why is this course ideal for you?

Nowadays, using computers is an essential task for a Bookkeeper to learn so they can effectively perform their accounting duties. Students must demonstrate to own this competence when processing necessary business computing activities and when utilising Computerised accounting systems. The Computerised bookkeeping course includes the completion of the monthly bookkeeping cycle using different accounting software such as Sage 50, QuickBooks and Xero.
