If you’re new to running a company’s accounts, you’ll need to know the ins and outs of all the business dealings. A Cash Flow Statement (CFS) can tell you at a glance just how healthy your business is. You might produce one every month or every financial quarter, and it’s one of the key financial statements you need to file on an annual basis. Learning how to put one together is an investment you must make in yourself, and it’s one that will always pay dividends.
This course explains what a CFS is, and takes you through the process of creating one. You will learn the distinction between cash from operations, cash from investing activities, and cash from financing activities. More to the point, you’ll be able to calculate a final total for how much your cash balance has increased over the period – or decreased (gulp!). You’ll also gain an appreciation for why it’s important to maintain a healthy cash flow.
If you’re dealing with your company’s accounts, then you’ll likely have an idea about the importance of cold, hard cash to a business already. But when you receive cash or indeed spend it, you’ve simply got to deal with it in the correct way. And that means creating a Cash Flow Statement. Together with the income statement and balance sheet, it’s included in the accounts that a business needs to file every year, and regular reporting of cash flow helps a business not only stay on track but also plan for the future: you need to know how much cash is available to pay your bills and work out a company strategy.
From a content creation perspective, financial documentation is not the most entertaining topic. Understanding that this is a feeling that is shared by learners, we set about to create a course which delivers the essential information quickly and effectively. With a course title like Cash Flow Statement Pro, we kind of felt we had to show a “real world” professional example, and that cash flow statement is the backbone of the training.
Voiceover and animation take us through the statement line-by-line, and other sections of the course place us in an accounting conference scenario – a device which helps us transmit key learning points. This is all supported by an interactive section where the learner can explore the cash flow statement at their own pace, and a handy infographic for ready reference.
Everyone has the right to learn and learner need can vary demanding on environment or disabilities. This course comes with transcripts so people have text options for an media, subtitles for all videos and is screen reader friendly with alternative text.
