Assessment Task 3 – Part A is in two sections.
PART A Section 1 (8%)
You are required to set up the computerised accounting system and record transactions using Xero software. You are required to submit the PDF file of an adjusted trial balance generated by XERO (i.e. the trial balance after you have conducted the
necessary adjusting entries).
• A Xero practice case and manual guide has been uploaded on Cloud Deakin. It is highly recommended that you view the document and go through the practice case before undertaking this section.
• Once you have signed up Xero, set up the company based on the information that
has been supplied in the case. Refer the practice case and manual guide on how to do this. Note that, for this assessment, you MUST enter the company name in the following format: Zen Drop Ltd – Your name (For example Zen Drop Ltd-Edwin Lim). Marks will be heavily penalised if you fail to do so.
• Go to General Settings and select financial settings. Make sure that the tax defaults for both sales and purchases should read “tax inclusive”.
• Click Chart of Accounts. Xero has suggested a range of accounts for your use. The account names may be slightly different to those you need to create when you are recording. This is okay, you do not need to standardise the names. Additional accounts will need to be added. To add new accounts, Click on new accounts and complete the necessary information.
