Xero Training, Help & Support

One on One Xero Training, Help and Support

One on One Xero training and Xero training courses tailored to your specific needs on the Northern Beaches and North Shore of Sydney.

Learn to be proficient and confident in using Xero in no time.

Our Xero training is delivered by Coralie Downie, a Xero Gold Partner, Xero Certified Advisor, a working, registered BAS agent and Ex Tafe Teacher.

Xero is best learnt with practical participation.

Sometimes, sitting down with a Xero professional with real world experience is the best option.

One on One Xero Training – Face to Face

Our preference is for one on one, face to face training in our office in Belrose. The training is tailored specifically to your business needs and your individual learning style.

You could attend a Xero course over a couple of days and work on the Demo company but you would not retain as much. It is better to learn on relevant data if you can.

If your office is out of our local area, you may wish to consider our Zoom Training sessions.

You bring along your list of questions. We work through them and offer valuable tips and tricks so you get the best out of Xero.

Bring a friend, partner or colleague

Bring one friend, partner or colleague along for support. Sometimes they will remember something important that you don’t.

What is Included in Your Xero Training Session:


An introduction to the back end setup of your Xero datafile including:

  • the organisational settings
  • financial settings
  • chart of accounts,

This forms part of our initial Xero setup which is usually the first step for new Xero users or if you have been using Xero for a while, it is included in our Xero Health Check

If you have been using Xero for a while, have your specific questions answered, we understand online videos and email support don’t always work
