Your chance to improve your understanding of your business finances in an interactive, informative workshop

This session on understanding your accounts and cash flow is aimed at business owners who need support with managing their business finances and will help you understand common terms your accountant may use, to have a clear picture of how your finances fit together and how you can keep track of your cash flow day to day.

Some of the issues we plan to cover are:

  • The different taxes that affect different businesses
  • The key tax rates you may have to pay
  • VAT rates and how they affect what you do
  • The different types of financial statements you may need such as profit and loss, balance sheets and cashflow
  • How to put together a balance sheet looking at assets, liabilities and equity
  • Cashflow forecasts  
  • Planning ahead to improve your cashflow
  • Profit margins
  • Profitability ratios
  • Efficiency and liquidity
