Learn about Goods & Services Tax (GST) with this excellent online short course. This short course will teach you how GST works, how to minimise paying GST with certain types of transactions, and how to produce a basic GST return with Xero and MYOB.

GST affects almost everyone in New Zealand. We pay GST on things we buy such as food, petrol and groceries. Businesses are responsible for collecting GST and forwarding it to the IRD. As a result, it is important to understand how GST Works, and what you must do to fulfil your obligations around this type of tax.

  • Beginner’s course to help you understand GST in accounting
  • Learn which special transactions don’t require you to pay GST
  • Produce a basic GST return using Xero or MYOB software
  • Online course that you can access on your computer or mobile phone
  • Great course for New Zealand business owners and employees

You will also learn which types of transactions you can generally claim GST back on. Because GST is such a huge cost to businesses, learning about claiming back GST can help reduce your tax bill.

In addition, you will be taught the basics of using Xero and MYOB to complete a GST return. This is a lot easier and faster than the traditional method of completing a GST return manually by hand and calculator.

Learning MYOB AccountRight is straightforward from our course – and we have now fully updated the course to include the ‘live’ version of MYOB – which is the latest cloud based backend system with bank feeds. It’s fast, friendly and fun to use MYOB.

Also suitable for those looking to learn MYOB AccountEdge, which is for Apple OS. Does not include MYOB payroll.
