Students will use MYOB to set up an entity’s accounts, inventory, debtors/creditors and to record a range of financial transactions for a month. An entity’s inventory and accounts receivable subsystem will be analysed. A report will be prepared identifying the procedures in place and how they help the company meet its goals. 


  • Processing financial information (MYOB);
  • Preparing financial statements;
