Accounting and Finance Management

Bookkeeping, keeping track of your income, expenses, and finances can be a stressful task in any business.

Learning how to effectively keep track can free up your time and lead to a successful business.

Accounting and Bookkeeping

Accountants can help you keep your finances in order. Most importantly an Accountant is responsible for:

  • Preparing and submitting returns.
  • Advising on legal structures and giving general advice on how to best handle your finances.

Bookkeepers can also help to manage multiple areas within a business. Their main focus is to organise, record and report financial transactions to make accounting less stressful.

Finance Workshops

As Accounting and Finance are a key part of business our Business Gateway team run fully funded workshops for both start-up and growth businesses looking to manage their records, gain accounting experience and understand their finances.

Start-Up Workshop: Finance
This workshop aims to give an introduction to the role of finance in business. You will learn about how to manage a profit and loss account, producing a cash flow statement, working capital and the different legal structures of a business.
