This course is ideal for those with no prior knowledge of accounting and finance. It deals with the source and meaning of financial information. Financial information influences your business decisions. It’s critical, therefore, that you understand where any figures come from, and know how to make sense of them. The main source of financial information is your organisation’s accounting system.
This course will help you gain a working knowledge of what is involved and how to ‘read’ the documentation – known as the financial statements – in ways that will support your business activities. This course focuses on those areas which are common to all organisations. Whether you work in a government department, a not-for-profit or a for-profit organisation, this course will be relevant for you.
