“My colleague and I took the IAB Computerised Bookkeeping and computerised accounting courses with Raj at London School of Accountancy five years ago. We utilised the knowledge we gained and have reaped the benefits from all that we learned on the courses. With Xero software becoming increasingly popular recently with our clients, we decided to take the three day Xero course with Raj. As always Raj is an excellent trainer, thoroughly prepared with course material and software demos. He has comprehensive knowledge of accountancy, payroll and HMRC regulations and guidelines which he openly shares and discusses as questions are raised throughout the course. I highly recommend the Sage and Xero training with Raj." Email received from Anita 29 July 2020 - Accounts manager at an International firm of Accountants.
“Very detailed regarding tax, I had zero knowledge to begin with but now I'd be confident in processing payroll." Charley who attended two days of Sage 50 Payroll training on 8 & 9 July 2020.
“You'll be pleased to hear that I have been inputting the data regularly and touch wood no problems so far ...... Thanks to your patience and expertise." Email received from Michelle on 20 May 2020 after on-site Sage Cloud Accountancy training at their offices.

One-to-One Xero Accounts Training
"I have been using Xero for seven years and I had so many niggly things that I couldn't work out. After a couple of hours with Raj, these issues were resolved and I have found Xero much more pleasant to work with. My time with Raj was valuable and I am happy to recommend his courses and one on one sessions."

"Learn Xero Accounts in a Day" Course
"I was looking for Xero training and I came across this institute on Google. I read the reviews and made a decision to finally attend the course. It was a very nice experience from start to finish. The price is economical, excellent teaching method of Raj, and you are also provided with a printed handout to refer to if needed in future which is a big help. Raj really is an excellent instructor, with his accounting background and different other software experience, it was really helpful to have him as an instructor since he was able to answer general accounting questions as well and was also able to give a comparative analysis of other software during the training. If you want to have Xero training, I would suggest this is the best place to go to."
"I very much enjoyed the course on Saturday. I thought that the materials and facilities were very professional and the delivery excellent and, although I already use Sage, albeit in a limited
capacity, I learnt a lot in a short time.
If ever you need a verbal recommendation, I would be more than happy to highly recommend your course and training methods."
