Course Aims

In addition, delegates will cover bank transactions and reconciliation, plus the maintenance and use of the Sales, Purchase and Nominal Ledgers and the Product file including stock control and the production of invoices.
In all, it provides a solid background for the day-to-day use of the Sage Line 50 package in a commercial environment.
