Focus On ... ... Accountancy Skills for the Non - Accountant


Glasgow Chamber of Commerce, 30 George Square, G2 1EQ


From: Friday 17 February 2017 09:30 To: Friday 17 February 2017 13:00

Many of us flinch when we hear terms like depreciation, cash flow, balance sheet, and (worst of all!) budgets. However, these are all important concepts to understand if you’re going to succeed in today’s business world, even if you have no background in accountancy. Even better, financial terms are not as scary as they seem! This workshop will equip non-accountants with a sound knowledge of accounting documentation produced and provide the means to understand and interpret what this documentation contains.


The workshop covers

  • A description and explanation of key financial terms
  • Discussion about various types of financial reports, including income statements, balance sheets, and cash flow statements
  • Identification and examination of important financial data and make financial decisions




  • Develop an understanding of financial data
  • Be able to use accounting ratios to understand the business’s financial position
  • Develop an important business skill
  • Improved personal performance
  • Confidently work with accountancy documentation
  • Improved decisions based on improved financial understanding
