Course Description

Course Description

Financial statements are written records that convey the business activities and the financial performance of a company.

Financial statements include:

  • Balance sheet
  • Income statement
  • Statement of Cash Flows
  • Statement of Shareholders' Equity

The financial statements are used by investors, market analysts, and creditors to evaluate a company's financial health and earnings potential. This CPE course covers the basics of financial reporting and analysis. This continuing education course demonstrates the process of preparing a complete set of financial statements, including discussions of the basic accounting equation, journal entries, ledgers, and contra accounts (e.g., accumulated depreciation and treasury stock). The last two videos address the differences between accruals and cash flows, and the items that reconcile net income on the income statement with net cash from operating activities in the operating section of the statement of cash flow.             

Designed for Accountants in public practice and industry who need to gain an understanding of the basic financial statements, the CPE course features the following:

  • Form and style considerations (standardization and presentation considerations)
  • A detailed review of classification, measurement, and presentation issues specific to accounts in each of the basic financial statements
  • Issues associated with the presentation of supplementary information

It was a lot to present in one hour. This could easily be an 8 hour webinar. The instructor kept stating "video #××" and it was prerecorded which delay answering the questions.
