Understanding Accounting

The design of the workshop is based on avoiding words like debit, credit and performing accounting calculations. Rather, it focuses on participants gaining an understanding of accounting and the specific
statements as documents that reflect part of their business. The workshop avoids the traditional ways of teaching accounting to avoid confusion, and focuses on understanding accounting information and the bookkeeping process in simple and clear terms.

  • The Statement of Profit or Loss
  • The Statement of Cash Flows
  • Using Financial Ratios

This course is practical and hands-on. You will be shown the processes, tools, and techniques above, and will then have the opportunity to apply your learnings through individual and small group exercises. Have confidence that your decisions are backed by a sound understanding of the financial data.
