How We Make Doing Your Own Books Easier

We pride ourselves on having a unique solution for each. We dig deep into our clients’ business. We work hard to understand what it is that they need from their bookkeeper.

Some operate and manage varying-sized businesses. Some are one-man bands and others employ hundreds of staff. There are a couple who have national sites across Queensland and Australia.

An increasing number of business owners enjoy numbers. They have some spare time as often their business is in its early stages. They would normally have straightforward invoicing and spending.

These new clients will often ask us to set up their new Xero file. Then they want help to gain a better understanding of how to use it. It is our absolute pleasure to do this for them. The first step is to get their Xero subscription organised. Often, we can access a discount for them so that makes it even better!

Next we do the setup and then prepare to hand over and get underway with some training. We have the ideal training space in our bookkeeping offices in Redcliffe for those who want to come to us. It has all the mod cons which make it an excellent training room. Added to the fact there are not the usual distractions. Things like telephones ringing or staff or the kids popping in to say hi can mean you are not fully getting the information being shared

Training Your Way...

One to One Training

Our one-to-one training is exactly as you would guess. It is just you and the trainer. That means the session is perfectly tailored to your exact needs. We can take into account your previous experience and factor in the level of knowledge you already have. This can be face-to-face in our specially created training room in Redcliffe or using Zoom to deliver the training The training is delivered based on your specific needs and tailored to you and your business.

Workshop Training

We run occasional classes in our Redcliffe Training room. These are open for up to 5 participants per session. These are usually no longer than three hours. We find any longer and concentration slips. The groups are made up of business owners at various stages in the development of their businesses. Group sessions are great to buidl comeraderie ancan highlight issues within your own business that you were not aware of. These sessions are interactive.

Online Training

We also offer online training to any one who wants to access training this way. This option allows you to do the training at your own speed and at a time that suits yoru schedule. Our lifetime access guarantee means you can redo any element of the training again. This is particularly useful if you take a break from the books and then return to them. Or perhaps you are recruiting a new member to the team and want to be sure you are covered in case they leave.

What can you expect from our sessions?

Well, that depends on your needs. If you are a start-up you will have different requirements than those of an established business. A newly recruited member of staff may just need a quick session. Or someone migrating from another accounting software could just need the basics of Xero under their belt.

We will often do the setup for businesses so that they know that everything is correct. They then do a couple of hours of training so that they really understand how to get the best from their books.

We will show you how to access reports that allow you to see clearly the financial help of your business.

Payroll can be a challenging aspect of your books if you have never done it before. At a Keeping Numbers Xero Training session, we will make sure you fully understand what your legal requirements are. We will ensure that your Single Touch Payroll is correct and giving you the right information.

Over the next few years, Super payments are changing every year. Our training will help you understand the impact of this.

There is so much that Xero can offer, but you need to learn how to drive it! We would love to take that journey with you.
