Budgeting Made Easy
Do you have responsibilities for your department’s budget? Do you approve or track expenses, monitor revenue, or produce budget update reports? Maybe you’re even taking the next step into assisting with projections or project forecasting. Most of us learn about the budget from the previous person who held the position; or, it is assumed that you know how to manage a budget, can carry out all the requirements and can manage the closing process accurately and efficiently. You may not know some of the things you need to watch out for, like, financial records rules, or, why you need to be concerned with budget variances. This interactive session will help you understand (in everyday language) the budget process, basic accounting procedures, accounting terms, the impact of tracking and coding expenses accurately, and how you can play a major role in assuring your company’s budget reports and financial statements are accurate, useful, and timely.
