    Location: London Price: £660 excl. VAT


The Balance Sheet Analysis workshop introduces the various elements that make up a balance sheet and shows where these are positioned on the balance sheet itself. This course seeks to ensure that all participants leave with a far greater understanding of what might be behind the numbers. They will leave this course with the ability to ask the right questions and to consider why the numbers on the Balance Sheet are as they are.

The balance sheet provides a ‘snapshot’ of an organisation at a particular point in time. It indicates the organization’s financial strength, providing information about what the it owns (assets), what it owes (liabilities), and the ‘book value’ of the business. Ratio analysis can also be performed on the balance sheet in order to gain valuable insight into the organization’s performance.

Who should attend

This Balance Sheet Analysis course will benefit anyone involved in reading, interpreting and/or analysing Balance Sheets. It would also be useful to anyone involved in creating the Balance Sheet to help understand how the figures that are being prepared may be interpreted and analysed.
