“Every decision you make in business has a financial consequence”Ian S Dixon, Access To Finance Team Leader

The Access To Finance Service are delighted to invite you to join this masterclass on 15th March 2018 which promises to be a participative and provocative session working with finance specialists who will be drawing on their knowledge and experience with two key objectives in mind:

  • To develop an understanding of the importance of financial management and the fundamentals of the key financial statements – Profit & Loss Account, Cash Flow Statement and Balance Sheet
  • Improve participants understanding of the importance of seeking appropriate professional support and gain an insight into the benefits of cloud accounting

Delivered by finance experts, the Access To Finance masterclass series provides you with the necessary knowledge and skills to effectively manage your business finances in support of your growth objectives.
