Course Description

Every manager (regardless of the type of business) will require the ability to understand and interpret financial statements and management accounts. In the midst of a Global pandemic and the Brexit transition these skills are more vital than ever. Financial Statements and Management Accounts contain vital information about the organisation’s financial and non-financial performance. It is essential for you to have the ability to understand and interpret this information. If you are serious about progressing to a higher management level, you will need these essential skills

The course tutor will take you through the essentials of financial management, giving you an understanding of financial terminology, how to prepare financial statements, how read and analyse accounts and financial statements, and most importantly how this information should be used in your decision-making and cash flow forecasting.
