    Default For those in finance.....

    Im getting back into payroll and accounts for a small business (max 20 employees) and wanting to refresh my memory plus learn the finer points of accounts and doing payroll tax/BAS. But not sure what I should study, would a bookkeeping course be enough or should I do something a bit more indepth as this company will get bigger

    In my experience the software packages are so indepth these days that only a very basic knowledge is required.

    Are you better to just do advanced training in the package you will use? Or were you looking for a certain qualification on paper as such?

    I was thinking of just doing a bit of training in the software we use. But was wanting to know a bit more on the tax side of things

    A certificate III or IV in business covers all the basics and you can continue on to do a diploma. Tafe does use myob but I've found most software packages are all pretty similar

    Myob themselves offer indepth training, including a tax unit, lodging and preparing and so on. Their prices are quite reasonable too.

    If you are looking to go into HR/QA I'd be more inclined to study something more specific to that path at TAFE, as tax knowledge won't be useful in those areas as such
