The Independent Accountant Ltd is an Invercargill based business we provide Xero training courses for our clients and for business people who are not our clients.  There is no obligation for businesses to change accountants.  The courses are 1 on 1 and are customised to meet your business needs and skill level.

Some accountants say they provide free Xero courses but they are including the costs in the annual accounting fee (which is very high) or they are just providing an overview. We are being honest about our costs and providing in-depth training.

A Final Note

Only Xero Partners can get access to Xero Certification. The training we have is not available to all Xero users so even the most tech savy business person will gain something from our courses.

All our courses are 1 on 1 and customised to suit our clients needs. You won't be competing for the instructors attention with other people. We use our own equipment but please feel free to bring your own device as well.
