Finance for non-financial people

This one day course is designed for managers who need to know the basics of business finance – but who have never really got to grips with the subject.In a friendly, jargon-busting environment, we look at the basic accounting needs of a typical small-to-medium sized organisation, and how these are met.

For managers looking to distinguish between spread sheets and balance sheets, this course will cover:

  •  The basic terminology and accounting concepts

  • The financial year and how it is reported

  • Key financial statements such as profit and loss, balance sheet and cash flow

  • Interpreting a set of accounts (using real life examples)

  • Understanding how your team or department is accounted for in financial terms
