Those wishing to brush up on their accountancy knowledge might consider attending the ‘Accounting for Non-Accounts’ workshop, held at the SBA Georgia District Office in Atlanta, Georgia on August 28. This session will take place from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm.
The focus of this course is to provide information that will help non-accountants understand the benefits of keeping effective accounting records, especially when the time comes to make decisions that will help their businesses.
Students will learn how accounts are classified and recorded, including getting to grips on accountancy terminology. There will be plenty of discussion on financial statements and understanding certain documents and government remittances. Participants will also learn how to prepare a chart of accounts, write up and read a statement of income, understand a balance sheet, and analyze accounts. There will also be direction on pricing, capital resources and needs, monitoring and managing the business, and much more. Upon leaving this workshop, participants should go back to the workplace with a full understanding of accounting principles and tax regulations. The instructor for this session is Priscilla Diggs-Costen, who runs Costen Tax Group and has more than 12 years’ experience in the sector.
Making the decision to start your own business or buy into franchise opportunities is not to be taken lightly and accountancy is one of the many things to consider, so this course is well worth taking in advance for those in this position. Admission to the workshop is $50 per person. For more information, or to register for this event, please visit SCORE Atlanta’s website or call their office during regular business hours.
