Finance & Accounting

A practical insight into understanding key financial statements and an appreciation of how cash flows in a business.

Duration: 20 minutes

Finance and accounting are more than just key functions of a business. The ability of a business to implement its strategy and achieve its goals is largely dependent on the financial well-being of that business. This e-learning package is designed around a case study of a small business. Learners will be able to see the application of key financial statements to this business, and observe how cash flows day-on-day. It also serves to bring learners up to speed on the basic principles of finance & accounting, and to provoke learners into converting the tools and methods into practical application within their individual contexts. As Finance is key to all organisations, it will be expected that all learners are fully familiar with basic finance and accounting principles. We understand that not all learners want to become accountants or Finance Directors, however, this 20 minute booster/refresher will ensure that everyone has grasped the key facts and terms.

By the end of this module learners will be able to:

  • Understand key financial statements
  • Appreciate how cash flows in a business
