Did you know that every business, by law, has to keep books? Also, it is a legal requirement to issue sales invoices and keep accounts records for a minimum of six years, so it is essential that businesses have an effective and manageable bookkeeping system in place. That’s why there is a demand for qualified bookkeepers, and when you study with Global Edulink, you will find it easier to get a job because you will have a widely recognised qualification on your CV.

Bookkeeping is the practice of keeping accurate records of all movements of money or of things with value that take place in a particular business or organisation. The only qualities a would-be bookkeeper needs are common sense, a logical mind, the ability to write neatly and the ability to do simple arithmetic accurately – and nowadays most arithmetic is done on a calculator.

Managing and processing a business’s payroll is an important task, and it’s vital that those handling the payroll have a full understanding and knowledge of the processes involved.

This course is designed to teach you the basic to advance rules of book-keeping and payroll management (USA Standards) in easy stages so that you gradually build up your knowledge and confidence and eventually achieve complete mastery of the subject at expert level. More importantly, you will be able to handle your own accounting records, or those of an employer, in a practical and professional manner.

It’s not easy deciding on a career path with so much uncertainty in the market place. One thing is for sure: with this qualification on your CV, you can offer financial expertise to countless businesses crying out for your skills.

Our online course is so well designed you will feel that you are in the classroom! This course is comprised of professionally narrated e-Learning modules, interactive quizzes, tests and exams. All delivered through a system that you will have access to 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for 365 days (12 months). An effective support service and study materials will build your confidence to study effectively and guide you to secure your qualification.

Please Note: This Course is Based on USA Standards

    It was a lovely experience.

    I didn’t think that such much knowledge can be enclosed in a short training course, but Global Edulink showed me that I am wrong. It is a great course and the support team members really helped me to successfully complete this course. Thanks to all of you. It was a lovely experience.
