Understanding Business Financials

Please note: This workshop is currently being provided as a live webinar. In order to protect you and our staff, we are currently taking a number of precautionary measures.

Overview

It is essential to be able to understand the financial health of your business, without relying solely on your accountant. 

This workshop will show you how to develop ‘snapshot’ measures (key performance indicators) of your business progress to make sure it stays on track. It will also provide you with a good understanding of your financial essentials so that you will know the right questions to ask your accountant.
