Collectively, the team at Baywater have over 30 years experience in industry and in academia. Over this time, we have produced many success stories. Here are just some of them.
I learnt so much during my time at Baywater. I became experienced in using accounting software such as MYOB, bookkeeping practices, and preparing and finalising financial statements and tax returns for individuals, trusts and companies.
While studying "Business Activity and Instalment Activity Statement", I interned part time at BNG - where I developed most of my practical accounting skills. I now work at State Street in their Hangzhou office specialising in the Australian market.
The course provided by Baywater uses practical examples and detailed explanations to help me quickly understand the content of the course and solve the corresponding problems in my work in a short period of time.
