We then take a look at how to analyse these financial, detailing specific methodology and then putting into practice what is described using worksheets and resources available to download.

Understanding finance 1

When managing a business, leaders follow varying agendas and objectives in making decisions. The finance function is often seen as the key steward and guardian of financial value for the investors and will continue to drive the delivery of that value from throughout the business.

This course will introduce you to a clear understanding of the measurement of financial value; how financial value is generated from strategic initiatives, pricing spend management; and how the finance team can contribute to building value.

Strategy 1

With UK GAAP gone, many entities have adopted FRS 102 as their new reporting framework. The framework is more international in its focus with some treatments being identical to IFRS. However, some treatments are simplified compared against IFRS and others remain the same as under UK GAAP. This session provides an overview of accounting frameworks in the UK, an introduction to the key accounting requirements of FRS 102 and an insight into the process of making the transition to FRS 102.

Financial accounting and reporting 1

Imagine being able confidently to express your opinion, stand up for yourself, say 'no' when you need to and say what you mean and mean what you say. How much more effective and successful would you be? How much easier would your life be? Becoming more assertive can be immensely beneficial to everyone and can make you feel more confident, enhance your self-esteem, increase your ability to deal with difficult people and stressful situations, as well as making you happier, healthier and more professional.

Communication 1

Financial modelling is becoming an increasingly important skill in an economic environment characterised by ever more uncertainty. The ability to use Excel to predict what the financial performance and position of a business or venture might look like in the future, depending on particular assumptions and estimates.

It is easy to build a poor financial model. It is difficult to build a high quality financial model which will satisfy the needs of the user. In order to build the latter rather than the former there are a number of Golden Rules (Dos and Don’ts) that must be adhered to. This course explains what those rules are.

Management reporting and analysis 1

This course deals with international aspects of VAT. It begins by showing how UK VAT law and the VAT laws of other EU countries are governed by European law. The course then shows how VAT applies to movement of goods both within and outside the EU. When and how the reverse charge operates to account for VAT on cross border transactions is dealt with next. Having covered movements of goods, the course goes on to cover cross border supplies of services and show how the VAT rules apply to these. In particular, the major changes to the rules on cross border supplies of services which were introduced from 1 January 2010 and 1 January 2011 are covered. Finally, the question of when out of state VAT may be incurred and how it can be recovered is dealt with.

Tax strategy, planning and compliance 1

Good performance management is fundamental to organisational success. Many organisations still focus too much on the financial aspect of performance. This is typically the verdict after the event so opportunities for earlier action and/or decisions will have been missed. In addition, research has shown that non-financial intangible aspects contribute the majority of market value for many organisations. It's therefore important to develop or assess existing KPIs using such frameworks as Kaplan & Norton's balanced scorecard.

Management reporting and analysis 1
