Course Content

Course Aims

This training course takes participants beyond the basics of day-to-day bookkeeping, and into the use of Sage Line 50 for prepayments, accruals, depreciation, contra payments and global changes. It also deals with pricing options and currencies (including the Euro). This is a very 'hands-on' course : delegates will use the package to carry out tasks, and will acquire practical experience as well as an enhanced knowledge of Sage Line 50 and the accounting principles behind it.

Who Should Attend

All Accounts staff who want to move beyond the basics of the Sage Line 50 accounting package.
Note: Participants should be competent in operating a PC, with a good basic knowledge of the package.
