Australian Payroll Association (APA)

APA was founded in 2010 by Tracy Angwin. The association provides education, qualifications and support for payroll professionals and employers. At e-BAS Accounts, processing payroll for clients occurs frequently and there are often situations and issues that arise within this bookkeeping area that require further research and/or a second opinion. That’s where APA comes in! They offer a support line as part of their membership benefits. We often use their support line when needing assistance with difficult client payroll or have general questions – it’s very reassuring knowing APA is there to help. http://www.austpayroll.com.au/about-us

Bookkeeping Institute of Australia (BIA)

Louise obtained her Certificate IV in Financial Services (Bookkeeping) from BIA. While the course is available on-campus at BIA, Louise chose to do her course off-campus (distance education). She found BIA to be both helpful and encouraging and due to her successful completion of the course, is now classed as a full member of BIA. BIA was originally founded as a bookkeeping and consultancy business in 2001 but has developed into the leading provider of Bookkeeping training courses in Australia. Other courses available from BIA include: MYOB, QuickBooks, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Office and several others. It is very easy to enrol in any of these courses with BIA and as previously mentioned, the assistance and support for all students is second to none. You can find out more about BIA on their website:
