This one day workshop will help you and your staff understand how your accounting books are constructed from source entry to trial balance.

You will be able to recognise and understand the accounting entries that originate within your own business and enabling a more controlled environment within which your business can operate.

Additionally, you will be introduced to the accountant and bookkeepers jargon, enabling you to understand the language of business.

During this workshop, the following topics will be discussed:

• Basic Bookkeeping and Accounting Terminology.
• Why you need Bookkeeping.
• Accounting Cycle.
• Source Documents – Books of First Entry.
• Chart of Accounts.
• Trial Balance.
• Reconciliations.
