Business Startup - What your accountant would tell you – if you had one...
CUE Business Solutions is offering a programme of support through the Coventry and Warwickshire Business Support Programme, the programme is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
If you have an innovative Technology-based business idea and have not yet started a business, or you have registered your business in the last 12 months, please see whether our FREE support would help you.
The aim of this workshop is to boost your competence as entrepreneurs in the theory and practical everyday use of key financial documents so that you may be more confident in your future business dealings.
Competencies gained from this workshop will enable you to more effectively:
Use forecasting techniques to set budgets and performance targets.
Monitor spending and performance.
Consider, project and manage options for change.
Control your business and inspire confidence in stakeholders to secure commitment, teamwork and whatever is needed to support everyday success and growth.
What we'll cover:
I thought accounts were for accountants! What are the key financial statements – why do they matter to me and my business? What are they telling us; how to interpret them and how will others interpret them?
Profit and loss: A quick look at how each of the elements are treated that makeup business income, expenditure and overheads.
The balance sheet in detail: Taking a snapshot of your business – what can we learn?
The cashflow forecast: How to use common sense to build up a picture of our business future. The key difference between profit and cash, demonstrating the issues of working capital.
This is a very practical workshop using real-life case studies and if you have them you can bring in your own accounts. Please note - our workshops are interactive and you will need to participate in exercises to get the most out of the sessions.
Each applicant will be contacted to establish eligibility for the programme.
