Understanding Business Financials - EOFY (Newman)

Understanding Business Financials - EOFY (Newman)

May 27, 9:00am - May 27, 12:00pm

Newman Hotel
1401 Newman Drive
Newman, WA  6753 Map

With End of Financial Year (EOFY) right around the corner, you're probably starting to think about systems and procedures to close off the financial year in preparation for lodging your income tax return. This workshop looks at understanding business finance from an End of Year perspective; including examples from MYOB and Xero.

It is essential to be able to understand the financial health of your business, without relying solely on your accountant.

This workshop will show you how to develop ‘snapshot’ measures (key performance indicators) of your business progress to make sure it stays on track. It will also provide you with a good understanding of your financial essentials so that you will know the right questions to ask your accountant.

Presented by RSM Business Local - Business Advisor, Ren Mullane, this workshop covers the following topics:

- how to read a profit and loss statement
- knowing the difference between margin and mark-up
- understanding a balance sheet
- tracking key performance indicators
- knowing your net cash position
- the importance of managing cash flow.

You'll receive a practical workbook, and there will be an opportunity to ask questions.

You are advised to bring a calculator with you.
