5* Google Review by Candice - "Learn Xero Payroll in a Day" Course


"Fantastic Xero Payroll training program, spend this Saturday here doing the payroll module and was sceptical as to the course meeting all my requirements.

I must say leaving at the end of the day, I am most impressed at the completeness of the theory covered, the preparation of the material provided and the additional assistance provided by tutor.

Would definitely recommend this course for individuals and businesses using or moving to #Xero (they offer Sage too)." Candice.
