Accounting Basics: Introduction to Bookkeeping
The three bite-sized topics cover:
An introduction to the three fundamental concepts in accounting: the separate entity concept, the accounting equation and the dual effect of double entry transactions (debits and credits)
The purpose of these three bite-sized training sessions is to introduce you to bookkeeping and accounting and to put the subject into context. We consider this to be an essential pre-cursor to your further accounting studies.
An introduction to T-accounts and the general (nominal) ledger
An introduction to the Trial Balance, Statement of Profit & Loss (Profit & Loss account) and the Statement of Financial Position (Balance Sheet).
The Statement of Profit & Loss (Profit & Loss account) and the Statement of Financial Position (Balance Sheet) are effectively your journeys end, although some would say that they are just the beginning. They are the end of the bookkeeping journey – the summary of a business’ transactions for a period and its closing financial position.
This is where the “accounting” can start – interpreting what these statements say about the business and how they can be used by management to plan and manage the business into the future.
These training sessions include interactive presentations with voice-overs, supported by transcripts, practice activities and answers.
There are also useful flowcharts depicting the structure of a typical accounting system.
Additionally, there are aide-memories and accounting games, designed to help make what you have learned “stick”.
