Frequently Asked Questions

Forever! Once you've enrolled and paid, you'll have access to the course material for as long as you need. So devour it all in one weekend or take things slow. It's your choice!

Do you cover the Xero & Intuit ecosystems as well as MYOB?

Yes, this is an inclusive course focused on the 3 key cloud accounting platforms in Australia and New Zealand.

My background includes working for MYOB, however I have also developed in market solutions using the APIs from Xero, Intuit and MYOB, along with holding advisory roles for other global cloud accounting vendors in the area of APIs and ecosystems. I've also mentored many of the local app developers across all 3 platforms.

Is this course suitable for bookkeepers?

Yes, I believe that bookkeepers are uniquely positioned to advise businesses on smart tools to improve the business. (Don't be scared of the term advisory - it's really just a conversation with the client & I think you are the best at that!)

Is this course suitable for accountants?

Yes, accountants need to be across the tools their clients are using in business and as advisory becomes key to the client relationship, apps and smart tools for business are the foundation of that.

Yes this course can be delivered in-person. Minimum group size applies and costs will be tailored to the group. Email for details.

Yes and no. While the fundamentals are the same across these markets the examples and references given are all localised to the AU and NZ markets.
