Understanding Financial Statements – Workshop
May 16, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am$49
Can you interpret what your financial reports are telling you about the sustainability of your business? Do you know that money in the bank account is not the same thing as profit?
There will be two sessions to the workshop:
1. The PROFIT & LOSS STATEMENT
- what a Profit and Loss Statement is
- expenses v capital expenditure
- profit v cash (hint: there is a VERY big difference between the two)
- cash and non-cash items
- considerations when reviewing the Profit and Loss Statement
2. The BALANCE SHEET
- what a Balance Sheet is
- calculating the net worth of your business
- how to tell if your business can actually afford its debts
- considerations when reviewing the balance sheet.
Attendees will be provided with a checklist of critical questions to ask when reviewing both financial statements.
