The Principles of Financial Accounting
Classroom: £329 +VAT per person
It is vital that all people in an accounts department understand the debit and credit convention of accounting.
This course is a comprehensive guide to the principles of producing a set of financial accounts. It begins by clearly explaining the debit and credit convention, using a unique learning technique and demonstrating how to carefully analyse a transaction and decide how it should be recorded. The update of the nominal ledger and production of a trial balance is then carefully explained, before illustrating how the trial balance is used to produce a Profit and Loss Statement and Balance Sheet. This will give attendees complete clarity of how a set of accounts are produced and where the information comes from.
The understanding gained on this course will enable accounts people to approach their job in a more informed way, which in turn will improve the accuracy and completeness of the financial information they produce for their organisation.
