Event Details

The workshop introduces key financial concepts, demystifies the terminology, and builds confidence in interpreting your accounts.

It is a highly practical session that emphasises the importance of sound finance to every business and where to get help.

The morning starts with a look at finance: what it is, why it matters, how to measure, where to record, and who needs to know.

It then moves on to consider the three essential statements: cashflow, profit and loss, and the balance sheet.

We then look at how to draw up a budget before we consider the importance of cashflow and how to manage it.

We show where to find help and resources and spell out the benefits of using a bookkeeper or accountant.

The workshop ends with a look at how to get finance: types to consider, the pros and cons, what it costs, and how to secure it!

Who Should Attend

Owners, directors, and sole traders who want to make sure their finances are in good order and how to interpret their accounts. 

How you benefit

We learn how to:
• recognise the importance of finance to your long term success
• interpret the three financial statements: cashflow, P&L, and balance sheet
• manage cashflow to ensure your short term survival
• understand the financial needs of a business.
