2021 Year-end for New Users presentations and Q&A session

The objective of these presentations is to cover the year end processes in more detail than the general year end presentation. A series of video presentations guide those less familar with year end (or needing a refresher) through each module.

Please work through the relevant modules in your own time, in any order, but do try to view before the Q&A session so you can raise any issues with the module expert.
