Managing Money In Small Business

Make the figures work for you.

Do you manage a small business and would like greater power over the finances?

Do you do the books in your business?

Or do you want to work as a bookkeeper?

This accredited course is for you.

Perfect for any small or medium business. Information session on Thursday 28 May at 5.45pm at the CWA in Dungog.

Knowledge is power, but in the case of business, knowledge is also money, productivity, time saved, dollars saved, knowing where things are working and where they aren’t, where the money’s coming from – and where it’s going!

Master bookkeeping. Get to grips with financial records. Understand money. Know the terms and concepts. Stay on top of bills and invoicing, tax and BAS, reconciliation and bank accounts, payroll, Excel spreadsheets, accounting software (MYOB or Reckon) and much more. Turn up at your accountants with your reconciliation done, your data files intact – and then understand what the accountant is actually saying to you.

Accredited and portable: a career in “doing the books”.

This course gives you a qualification that’s accepted nation-wide: the Certificate IV in Bookkeeping (FNS40215). It can be used in a small or large business, working freelance for a number of people or businesses, or (after satisfying eligibility requirements including experience) being a registered BAS service provider. It can also be a pathway to a Diploma of Accounting. Managing Money In Small Business consists of 9 core units and 4 carefully selected electives to round out the qualification.
