Introduction to Accounting and Finance


Intro to Accounting Course

Contrary to popular belief, accountancy isn’t simply a numbers game. Financial professionals balance books, assist with taxation, monitor expenses and track income. But there’s also a strong element of strategic analysis to the role. Accountants help those they work for make informed decisions for the benefit of their business. Their advice, expertise and experience are considered invaluable assets for any business. From budgeting to cost control to key investment opportunities, professional financial support can be worth its weight in gold. At its core, accountancy contributes directly to the success and overall performance of the wider organisation.

This intro to accounting course provides newcomers to accountancy with a broad overview of the profession and its purpose. The primary objectives of accountancy are introduced, along with the advantages of accurate accounting and an introduction to basic accounting terminology. Explore the accounting cycle, the contemporary accounting process and the limitations of corporate accounting. Learn about the primary forms of accountancy, how to work with accounting data and the extent to which accountancy influences the business.
