This course would enable new as well as existing accounting personnel, administration personnel to appreciate and understand the steps in the accounting process, from source documents to the preparation of financial statements. Knowledge in these areas will enable them to be more effective at their job functions.
In today’s computerised accounting environment, accounting staff perform very specific duties as part of the accounting function. They may be involved in one specific area like handling accounts payable, accounts receivable, payroll, cash book, general ledger, etc. As a result, they are often very focused in their respective areas but may not be aware or knowledgeable of the other important areas in accounting.
With the advancement of computerised accounting packages, the accounting process is somewhat isolated and as a result, the accounting personnel do not see the physical transaction actually taking place. This may lead to a lack of understanding of the accounting process which can lead to making errors. A thorough knowledge of the accounting process will enable the staff to better understand the process thus contributing more effectively to the recording process.
This course is also suitable for administration staff, secretaries and other clerical personnel, who perform some basic accounting functions but have limited knowledge of accounting.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
New accounting staff, accounts clerks & assistants, secretaries, office administrators, non-financial executives, payroll clerks and other clerical staff.
