Xero is a cloud-based accounting software targeted toward small to medium-sized businesses. Built with tools for managing invoicing, bank reconciliation, inventory, purchasing, expenses, bookkeeping and more.

With Xero, you can access your accounts and run your business from anywhere in the world.

XERO Features

Search for contacts, invoices, bills, transactions, purchase orders, quotes and even help. Next time you are logged in and are on the hunt for something, check out the search button.

No need to constantly google search “calculator” or even refer to your calculator on your computer.

Xero has a built-in calculator saving you the quick switch from your Xero display to the calculator. You can perform basic mathematical equations within a transaction.

For example, a unit field on a bill. To utilise this, a simple equation (example 500 + 8) it requires into the relevant field. This helps your calculations on accuracy and time.

This ensures that you can control any access to sensitive information you do not want your customised roles to see, whilst being able to fully collaborate with everyone impacting your business.

Invoice Reminders

Xero allows automatic reminders to be set up to save your time. Chasing for your accounts receivable and even tracking your own invoices can be easily tracked.

These reminders are sent out as emails to customers who have invoices on the Awaiting Payment tab. You can also remind yourself by following these steps:

  •    Click on settings
  •    Go on General Settings
  •    Click Invoice Settings
  •    Click Reminders button

From here you will be able to configure Xero to auto send reminders based on how overdue invoices become. These reminders will go out automatically a few days before or after an invoice is due, depending on your preference.

Ever get lost in boxes full of paper receipts? With Xero, you can easily upload anything eliminating the use of printing and confusion.

When entering a bill, you will see an icon in the top right corner. Clicking this will allow you to attach a PDF or JPEG document to your transaction.

This feature changes the way we store hardcopy receipts and invoices storing them in one convenient spot. As well as saving extra cash on printing pages of the files.

Undo a Reconciliation Mistake

Xero’s “Unreconcile” feature lets you fix incorrectly matched transaction quickly. This feature keeps the account transaction and the bank statement line but removes the connection between them.

To save you time we have broken down the steps to unreconcile an accountant transaction:

  •    Click on the three little dots to the right of the account name on the Dashboard.
  •    Go to Account Transactions under the Find header.
  •    Click the transaction you want to change to open it.
  •    On the next screen, click Options and then select Unreconcile.

By syncing your Gmail, you can export Xero reports or budgets onto Google Sheets. This hassle-free feature assists in editing, saving and sharing the sheet. We have broken down the steps for you to follow.

  •    Click the menu icon (the three little dots) to the right of the document you’d like to export
  •    Go to a report or budget that you’d like to export
  •    Choose your export method—choose Google Sheets
  •    Log onto your Gmail account if haven’t done yet
  •    Confirm that Xero is a trusted site each time you initiate a Google Sheets session
  •    Click export

Repeating Invoices and Bills

Regular invoices and bills can be set up on a repeating basis and saved as a draft. Save yourself the trouble of having to repeat the same process again and again.

You can also approve and send sale invoices automatically. This helps move your business model, ensuring cash flow is maintained. To apply this, develop a template and Xero will automatically create an invoice or bill for you based on the frequency you have chosen.

To top it all off, you can also backdate and generate invoices as necessary.

Demo Company Feature

Still not truly understanding how to work your way around Xero. Or want to play around and discover new things for your business? Xero’s demo company lets you experiment with usable test data. This allows you to test out transactions and features which are completely disassociated with your own business. The already configured data on the demo can assist in playing around without any harm. Nothing will be affected nor will anyone else be able to see what you have done.

Why your accounting degree alone is not enough?

Slaving away with exams and assignments for 4 years may seem like the end, but as an accounting graduate, it is just the beginning. In a day and age of constant shifts in accounting regulations and technological advances, accounting graduates need to be smart with their degree. Just graduating with an accounting degree alone will not help you reach your full potential in your career.

There are many factors to consider and develop along with your accounting degree; ranging from a strong foundation in soft skills to gaining appropriate experience for the job. Here we take a look into why your accounting degree alone is simply not enough to suffice in the accounting industry.

Internship

Even before you graduate with a degree, practical experience is important. As the accounting field has become more and more competitive within the last few years, students need to think of new ways to help them stand out from all the other equally qualified and knowledgeable candidates. Everyone graduating has the same skill sets, knowledge and experience as you. You will be competing for a job among a sea of other candidates exactly like you- that’s when recruiters look for extra attributes.

 This is where an internship should be something to consider even before attaining your accounting degree.

Soft Skills

Recruiters often look for two types of skills in their candidates – hard skills and soft skills. Hard skills include the practical and theoretical qualities of accounting. However, as everyone graduating with you would have the same level of knowledge and skill, this makes soft skills a vital trait for recruitment as it is something not everyone has mastered.

A simple thing such as communication for example can help you convey your ideas and present yourself well in a job interview. Being able to communicate well in writing and in person can display the hard skills that you have acquired in your degree.

Engaging with building soft skills such as teamwork, problem solving, time management etc can also set you apart from the sea of other candidates. Your accounting degree would be pointless if you had no means on how to present it.

Accounting Software Knowledge

The rampant surge of software advances in recent years has highlighted the importance of technology. Cloud accounting like Xero is the latest technology break-through in the industry. The increased focus on digitization and automation has encouraged more employers to look for candidates with the right IT skills to grasp new financial systems.

Depending on the path of your course, cloud accounting isn’t something that you will likely learn in detail – most courses then to focus more on handwritten recording of transactions and theory. This alone is not sustainable in the booming technological industry of today.

It is in the company’s best interest to take on candidates that will be the most beneficial to the productivity of the business, meaning employing candidates with sound knowledge of various accounting software like Xero and Myob.  Sure, mastering the theory and how to pull insightful data out of a report are critical to have a successful accounting career, however, if you can’t use the accounting software and other tools necessary to do your job – advancing in your career will be tough.

  Accreditation

After undertaking an appropriate education, gaining accreditation is needed.These accreditation require graduates to sit an exam or you have to have a minimum number of years of experience to be eligible to be apply. Australia’s accounting industry is regulated and accredited by three professional accounting bodies:

Institute of Public Accountants (IPA)

You can join as a member of IPA if you meet one of the below entry requirements.

  • Qualifications and experience:
  • Eligible accounting qualification (see AIPA requirement) + a post-graduate accounting qualification assessed to be equivalent to the IPA Program Stage 1 and
  • Industry experience assessed to be equivalent to the Mentored Experience Program (MEP) completion/full exemption; OR
  • Current membership with an IFAC Member level body, IPA MIPA level equivalent(additional requirements may apply in certain jurisdictions due to local legislative requirements).

Please refer to IPA website for further information regarding membership: https://www.publicaccountants.org.au/become-a-member/membership-pathways

Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (CA ANZ)

To join this body, you will need to complete the CA Program and must hold a degree, or a postgraduate award recognised by CAANZ. The CA program is comprised of the Graduate Diploma of Chartered Accounting and, three years of approved and mentored practical experience.

Please refer to CA ANZ Australia website for further information regarding membership of CA ANZ: https://www.charteredaccountantsanz.com/become-a-member

CPA Australia (CPA)

To join this body, a member must hold a degree, or a postgraduate award recognised by CPA Australia. You must complete the CPA Program, including three years of professional experience in finance, accounting or business.

Without a sound knowledge of the correct accreditation to pursue, attaining a potential graduate position and prospects will be difficult and messy. For more information, contact any of the organisations listed above.

In Conclusion

There are many things to consider before you graduate with your accounting degree. Planning for which accounting sector you want to go into, whilst you are still completing your education, is very advisable.  This will also enable you to seek relevant experiences for any future internships. And with the industry becoming increasingly more technologically savvy, accounting software use is more important than ever. Graduating with limited software knowledge can be tricky, however, there are a plethora of easy ways (such as short practical courses) to address your cracks in accounting.

Should I Take The Job? 7 Ways To Assess A Job Offer

should i take the job

So, you’ve aced the job interview and the company has offered you the position. Great news! You’re obviously going to take it, yes?

The temptation may be to accept the job offer straight away but before you pop open the champagne, take a step back and assess the situation. Take at least a day or two to assess your options, especially if you are mulling over more than one offer or if you are torn between staying in your current job and accepting a new position.

Your job is a huge part of your life and you will be spending most days of the week in your workplace. It is therefore very important that the job you accept is as suitable for you as possible.

1. Salary

Does the position represent a sizable salary increase on your last/current job? If you are evaluating multiple job offers, which one offers the best salary?

At the same time, try not to focus on salary alone because if the base seems low perhaps there is commission or OTE’s to consider. Sometimes the salary may not be very high but maybe the job offers you a lot of opportunity and so there is a potential for growth that will benefit you and your career in the long run.

 2. Opportunities for Career Progression

Some people place less value on monetary rewards in a job than having the chance to advance in the company. If this applies to you, you need to be sure a clear career path is in place before you accept an offer. Will you be given the opportunity to grow, learn new skills and face new challenges?

career progression

3. Job Benefits and Perks

Maybe one job offers a higher salary but as a result another provides better benefits. Perks such as good health and dental insurance packages may mean more to you than the actual base salary.

Some companies also offer many perks outside of monetary rewards. For instance some organizations may let you work from home, or they might offer flexible work hours. Some companies may even offer you the opportunity to condense your working week meaning you have a 3 day weekend or a mid week day off.

Perks offered by a company can be just as important as the salary package. The perks you desire or the ones that sway you towards a job offer do of course depend on your circumstances like where you live, if you have kids; have you many outside of work commitments etc.

4. Commute

Will the job require you to travel a large distance between work and home? If this is an issue, you need to weigh up whether or not the job is feasible.

Make sure you think a lot about your commute times and length. Do research on how long the journey typically takes at peak hours and what modes of transport you need to get there. The idea of sitting on one train for an hour may seem feasible but if you have an hour commute involving 3 different modes of transport that come at different times, your commute may be a different story.

Look into the cost of commuting too and see is it feasible with your monthly travel budget.

 5. Work/life balance

How much emphasis do you place on having a work/life balance? Find out if the role involves working late and long hours. Are you prepared to work these hours?

If the job does require a lot of late evening work do they have the added benefits of an onsite gym or cafeteria?

work life balance

6. Company culture

An important element to consider is whether or not you buy into the company culture of your potential new employers. Do you share their vision? Are their values in line with yours? If not, then maybe they’re not the right fit for you because it is very hard to work in an industry or for a company that you are not passionate about. There are so many organizations out there that there is something for everyone! Take the time to find the best company for you.

Some companies are great to build staff moral and so they create fantastic rapport amongst their employees. They may offer monthly team lunches, social clubs or holidays abroad. If this type of culture is important to you, accept a job offer that has it.

Company culture is of course very industry dependent so you need to keep this in mind.

7. Stability of the company/industry 

Ensure that you know as much as possible about the company and the industry which you have applied to. Is it performing well? Is this an area that is growing? You do not want to accept a job offer because it is the first one you get only to find the company ceasing to exist one or two years down the line.

If you are struggling to find the right job for you and if you would like more practical, hands on and up to date accounts training, feel free to apply to one of our courses here at BLC Training and Internships.We also run career workshops which aim to help participants to apply highly effective resume writing, cover letter and interview techniques.

First Day At Work – How To Make A Great First Impression

Tips for Conquering Your First Day At Work:



Your First Day at work, is exciting and nerve racking all at once! If you are changing jobs or it is your first job straight out of Uni, first day jitters are always the same.

Get Up Early And Arrive On Time


Set your alarm for a little earlier than the time that you would normally plan to get up at. Take your time to get ready, eat breakfast, grab a coffee and relax. You may feel nervous but it is important not to stress out too much, everyone has experienced a first day and your new employers wanted to hire YOU for a reason! Arrive at the office earlier than your start time to make a great first impression!



Dress For Success


First impressions are important and so is how you dress and present yourself! It is important to look well put together and groomed on your first day at work. If you are not sure how to dress think back to your interview, what were your interviewers wearing? How did the other people in the office dress? This should give you a guideline of what you are expected to wear.  Majority of companies nowadays either have office wear or smart casual dress guidelines.

First Day At Work


Don’t Wait To Be Introduced


Whilst it may be tempting to keep to yourself you cannot expect all of your new colleagues to come up to you and introduce themselves.  Most of your company and especially your team members will find out that you are new and they will be looking forward to meeting you. Take a quick walk around the office, smile, wave, shake hands and hear a thousand names that you will likely forget the second you walk away, but that’s okay! It may feel awkward at first but I guarantee that it will stand to you in the long run.



Adapt To The Company Culture


Most of the companies will have an “Employees Handbook” and a practice of formal induction of new employees. The Employees Handbook together with your contract will outline all of the important rules and guidelines that employees have to follow e.g. work hours, lunch breaks, clothing and appearances. Companies normally have the practice of formal induction for new employees. You will find however, that many offices also have ‘unwritten rules’ that they do not give to you in any handbook, so use your first day and week to suss them out. These type of rules may seem minor and silly but they make for a happy work place and happy colleagues e.g. don’t switch on the heater without asking your colleague who sits beside it; don’t put recyclables in the food waste bin; take lunches at different times so there is always somebody from your team in the office.

First Day At New Job


Be Enthusiastic & Positive


Your first day might be overwhelming but try your best to stay calm, composed and positive. It can take people weeks, or even months to settle into a new job. Remember that you are not alone and that tomorrow there will be somebody else new and in the same shoes as you. If there is anything you are unable to do, do not be afraid to ask for help. Your manager is there to help you to learn and grow, and questions show how keen and serious you are about the role at hand.



Make An Effort With Your New Colleagues


If your boss or some of your colleagues ask you out for lunch, GO! Make sure to get involved and say yes to everything. If there is a social club or sports team ensure you join those and use your coffee break too to get to know some of your colleagues. Your colleagues make your life at work easier and it is always lovely to have someone you know and trust with you every day. Colleagues can be great to share stories with, have a natter with and most of all they are great for support.

As an old saying goes, “there is no ‘I’ in team!”

If you are looking for a new job or if you are wondering how to interview well and even how to handle your first day at work, get in touch with the BLC Training and Internship team today: ruth@blctraining.com.au and come and meet with us. We offer regular Career Coaching workshops, designed to help you to succeed in your Career. If you work in the Accounting or Business industry and want to make a great first impression at work, why not make sure you are fully prepared by completing our Job Ready Accounting Program.



Study Tips For University

Study Tips For University
Starting university means lifestyle changes such as new routines, meeting new people, making more friends and balancing your social life with your academia.Whether you are just starting out at University or you are in the middle of your course, it can be tricky finding a balance between how much time to dedicate to study and how much time to dedicate to everything else. It’s never too early – or too late – to develop good study habits. Here are 8 Study Tips for University to see you through the School Year.

Timetable

At the start of each new School year, you will most likely receive a timetable listing all of your classes. Use this timetable to put together a schedule of all of your classes and fixed commitments combined to show clearly when things are on or more importantly when assignments and projects are due. Make sure that you schedule in any homework, assessments, exams and, projects that you have to do each week in effort to stay on top of everything. With your fixed commitments and assessments already recorded, customise your own study routine. It doesn’t have to be the same everyday and can change easily, so don’t beat yourself up if you have to change the priority of your tasks. Stick to something you know you can do. And by maintaining a variety of tasks, you can plan difficult tasks for when you work best, easier ones for when you’re less alert. Remember to always keep the focus on the completion of divided tasks rather than how much time is spent on any one thing.

Study Breaks

Taking breaks while studying is vital for your productivity. Working for too long without taking a break will drain you and will make you less attentive, meaning any more information that you try to learn will go in one ear and out the other. Your brain needs time to recharge and digest information. Take a 5-minute break every 30 minutes that you study. Set a timer and fully focus on the task at hand. Try not to engage with any social media platforms as taking a quick break on Facebook, Instagram or even Netflix can turn into an all-day-long break. Try listening to music or take a quick stroll around the block.
study tips university


Peak Times

Not everyone is productive at the same times of day. Some people perform better during the day and others at night. If you normally wake up late in the day, forcing yourself to wake up early to study may fail. Decide when your energy levels are at a peak for a higher performance rate. Schedule your most demanding work for these times and less demanding work for other times when energy is not as high.

Keep Healthy

Obvious, but not practiced enough among the majority of students. Keeping healthy by taking care of your mental and physical health will help improve your memory, mood and, energy levels. Drinking 8 cups of water, eating 3 meals a day and snacking on healthy foods such as nuts and fruit are just the bare minimum. These essential things give you the fuel you need to focus. Along with a healthy diet, sleep is very important. 7-9 hours of sleep per night is a good guide to feeling refreshed and motivated to start the day. Form a relaxing night-time routine allowing you to wind down for the night without any distractions.
Study Tips


Manage Stress

Balancing so many things at once can cause tension. Some stress is good for motivation, however too much can impact your learning and well-being. Asking professors, trainers and tutors for help when you need it will decrease your stress levels immediately. These people are there to help you. Make an effort to go class and familiarise yourself with your professors. It is also important to be aware of any health or support services that are available at your institution. If you just can’t cope, never bottle up your feelings. Have a support circle of friends and family whom you trust. Some things may need guidance from student support services on campus or a counsellor – and that is okay. Plenty of online helplines are also easily accessible. Never feel embarrassed or shy to say something or to ask for help.

Study Area

The area you study in depicts the way you will function. A messy space will cause distractions and inefficiency, making you unmotivated and drowsy. A neat well-lit room with organised papers and pens will increase your motivation making the space inspiring and welcoming. Stick to the mantra, ‘a tidy room is a tidy mind’. Find out what space works for you whether that is at home, in a library or in a café. Everyone is different. Some prefer listening to music, some do not. Find your preferences and what works best for you and stick to it.

Study Groups

Get together with friends or classmates to form a study group. Groups can be great as everyone can share their insights on various study topics and providing that everyone has studied the topic at hand, you can then learn from one another. Keep your study group to no more than 5 people – too many and you will find yourself distracted for hours.

After University

You’ve applied these tips and have excelled in your degree. However, something is missing. It can be difficult obtaining employment as a fresh graduate. Many accounting courses delivered by university/TAFE do not cover practical accounting skills, accounting software such a Xero, MYOB and other similar programs.Top marks always translate well, however, the right knowledge and skills are what most recruiters are looking for. Wanting to brush up on your accounting knowledge? Or do you just want to gain overall experience with cloud accounting? The Job Ready Accounting Program offered by BLC Training and Internship provides you with the technical skills and soft skills required for accounting roles in Australia.

Accounting referrals

We have all heard the stories of how someone out of left field got the job ahead of all the other applicants. How does this happen? Sometimes it`s not what you know but who you know. We can all argue if it is fair or not, but the reality is that it happens.

In fact almost 50% of the jobs are never advertised, or if they are, it is only for appearance.

Let me tell you a story that happened to me. I once saw a job on SEEK, that I was perfect for. I had the right qualifications, ten years experience in a similar environment, great references, the right mix of skills and knowledge. I then spent the rest of the day writing a great letter of introduction, updating my resume, before lodging my application online.

For the next 8 seconds, I was feeling pretty pleased with myself, then I received the following reply. “Thank you for your application, unfortunately we have received a large number of applicants for this role, and will not be proceeding any further. We wish you well with your future endeavours.”

Eight seconds is not long enough to read my name and address let alone my letter, resume and write an email. Yet that is what happened. The job was already gone to someone, who knew someone, who got in early.There are many tricks to getting the right job. At BLC, we find that an introduction such as an internship makes the path much easier. My suggestion is to look into how our Job Ready Program can help you.

To be or not to be, that is the question…….

Students and test takers are often in a quandary, when choosing one test format over another. Nowhere else is this a more quintessential decision than at the point when test takers need to decide on their choice for an English Proficiency test. The dilemma of IELTS or PTE often plagues a lot of potential test takers and quite amusingly reminds me of the opening phrase soliloquy from Shakespeare’s Hamlet since immortalized as “to be or not to be, that is the question,’

The test takers are often in a predicament over whether to sit for IELTS or PTE tests. This is an inevitable comparison as both are English language proficiency tests. As with everything else out there, there will be different schools of thought and diverse perceptions.

While some argue that it is easier to score in one particular type of test over the other, while the proponents of the other format are absolutely convinced that it is not the case.

Who would you tend to believe when there seems to convincing arguments on both sides.

The answer to that would be YOU!

Sit down and have a think about the format itself. Be honest in your self-assessment as to which format suits your aptitude better. Each one of us is wired slightly differently and that is the most distinctive factor that makes us who we are- Individuals.

There is no one size fits all solution, and hence we must weigh our own individual pros and cons which are very specific and distinct. We must then take an informed decision as to which option suits us as an individual, better and make that conscious choice.

If you are facing a similar situation to make that decision, swing past our centre and have a chat with our trainers. They can help you with the analysis as well as your decision making process by giving a more objective feedback which could help you understand the obvious, that had been staring at you all along.

Learning is not always in the classroom

What a lot of international students require is to know where they fit in with the locals? This is an easy question to answer. You see all the locals are the same as you and me. They may have been born overseas or at least their parents and grandparents were, so the only difference is timing.
At BLC training and internship we are always interested to expose our students to different learning activities, that have a cultural experience. The two photos above show a group of students at the “footy” on a cold wet winter`s day at the MCG. It is a religious experience for many Australians. Go to a game support a team and you will have 50,000 new friends for the day. Win or lose you will have shared in an unique experience.

Religion of all sorts is again an experience for international students to examine.

St. Mary`s Cathedral in the photo above has its doors always open. The same is true for most Christian churches. You don`t need an invitation to visit and no one is likely to try and convert you. The architecture, statues and the stained glass windows represent 150 to 2018 years or more of history.

Feel free to ask questions from anyone in the area, and I am sure they will take the time to give you some of their knowledge. The same applies to food, drinks, entertainment, the bush, the beach, Sunday Markets, visiting the gardens, 201 sports and much more. The best thing of all is that most things are free.

Our advice is to open your eyes, ask the locals, have confidence to explore on your own. Pretty soon you will be the local that the students will be asking.

 
 
 
 
 

Competitive Marketplace

Jobs seem to be in short supply, but the reality is quite different.

As of the 26th of November there were 2,405 accounting jobs in Melbourne according to SEEK. If we estimate that seek has 25% of the market than the real figure would be close to 10,000 accounting related jobs. In addition there were 347 jobs in administration and office support, 171 in banking and financial services, plus almost 800 jobs that have a large percentage of the work as accounting related.

So what does this mean to someone looking to get into this field? It means that there are opportunities, but you need to put your best foot forward. Many people look for reasons why they will not be successful. Too young, too old, not enough experience, not the right qualifications; but what they are really saying I am not really confident that I can do the job.

If that is you then make a decision to do something about it. Enrol in our Job Ready Accounting program refine and learn new skills that make you confident. Get help with your resume and application letters, plus finding an internship that will give you the experience you need.
