Financial accounting refresher for management accountants 1

Category: MASTER COURSE

This course will refresh accountants' knowledge of basics such as double entry bookkeeping, financing issues, cash flows, accruals and prepayments.

This course will take you back to things you may have studied for your exams but then immediately forgotten because they weren't part of the day job – double entry bookkeeping, financing issues, cash flows, accruals and prepayments. It will cover the life blood of a set of accounts to remind or inform you about how those figures get into the Profit and Loss and Balance Sheet.

Who should attend?
This is the first of two courses for the management accountant who is being dragged kicking and screaming back to the world of all things financial accounting, having perhaps forgotten how these accounts things are bolted together.

What you will gain
Many management accountants will spend most of their time looking at budget reports, investment appraisals and playing with various forecasting models. Often the basics get erased from the mind as the day job kicks in.
This course is intended to be a fun interactive day with exercises to remind you of the various terms and acronyms that surround the world of financial accounting and double entry.

Financial accounting refresher for management accountants 1 and 2 can be attended together, or either can be attended separately, depending on your level of need.

Programme outline

  • Setting up our own business!
  • The fundamental concepts that help us bolt the primary statements together
  • Books of prime entry
  • The nominal ledger and the world of T accounts!
  • The trial balance
  • The journals, including: stock adjustments; accruals and prepayments; capital and revenue expenditure; depreciation and amortisation; what makes an asset intangible?; debts and how to manage them!
  • Bringing it all together and the joy of getting a balance sheet to balance!
  • A quick look at how this theory is reflected in the existing accounting software that’s out there…

The course will also run an issues board throughout the day so if there are any best practice or technical questions that can’t be answered on the day, the answer will be found and reported to all attendees after the course.

The course starts at 9.30am. Lunch and refreshments are included.
6 CPD hours (where applicable).
