Accounting for Non-Accountants

Accounting has been called “the language of business.” Perhaps a better term is “the language of financial decisions.” The better that the decision-makers of organizations understand the language, the better they can manage the financial aspects of the business they own or manage. Sound financial planning that includes investments, loans, payments and amortizations, income taxes, and many other aspects of a business operation are based on accounting.

A two-day appreciation of Accounting for Non-Accountants is designed to provide the participants with the basic understanding of the system of analyzing, recording and posting business transactions leading to the preparation of the financial reports. The seminar will lay the foundation to understanding the jargon and terminologies of the accounting system, the methods of entering transactions leading to the preparation of the financial reports, and the importance of these in the business operations.
