    Course Description

    The relationship between knowledge of accounting and the success or failure of small businesses is astounding.

    Knowledge of accounting enables a business owner to understand how much profit he/she is making, what costs are being incurred and understanding how much money they are owed at any one time. This may sound like very obvious information and what every small business owner knows at the drop of a hat, but this is not ther case.

    A Certificate in Business Accounting will teach you the importance of and give you a fundamental understanding of management accounting, business economics and financial accounting. You will learn through practical examples and experiences, how the different areas of accounting relate to one another in the business environment, how to prepare financial reports, perform forecasts and how to analyse and make decisions based on these relationships.

    At the end of this course, you will have a solid fundamental knowledge of business accounting, will be able to set up accounts and reporting for your own small business or even apply for business accountant positions.
