Course description

Accounting & Financial Analysis - Intermediate

This two-day course builds on Accounting & Financial Analysis - Introduction and gives an understanding of more complex accounting areas and how accounting treatments can impact the assessment of corporate performance and position. The impact of different accounting treatments on key analysis metrics is investigated, and the concept of “creative accounting” is covered. A real company case study is used throughout, along with some basic Microsoft Excel to help analyse the numbers. An understanding of balance sheets, income statements and loss accounts, cash flow and accounting ratios is presumed, along with basic analytical skills.

This course will be of benefit to those who have either attended our three-day Accounting & Financial Analysis - Introduction course, or who have an existing knowledge of financial statements of corporates and wish to cover more complex accounting and analysis areas.
