Accounting for non-accountants

Date: 13 December 2017 13:30 - 16:30

Type: Career and Personal Development, Course

Organiser: Tyne and Wear

Designed for non-specialists who have little or no background in accounting and who would like to understand the basics.

Attendees will be equipped with the tools to understand what financial statements broadly depict rather than having to rely on accountants to tell them. With terms and concepts explained, delegates will be able to question the constituents of numbers so that income statements, balance sheets and cash flow are more easily understood.

Content will include:

  • Differences between cash flow and profit
  • The accruals concept
  • Constituents of financial statements
  • Interpreting financial statements with accounting ratios


Comments when this course was last delivered include:

  • “A good event, well presented, pitched well”
  • “A good insight into accounting and able to relate to my working day”
  • “Interesting and informative”
