CED to hold Record Keeping Seminar

A one-week seminar designed to help persons understand the importance of good record keeping and equip them with the tools to practise such will be held later this month.

The Centre for Enterprise Development Inc (CED) on Monday announced its Financial Module 1: Record Keeping Seminar, which targets business owners, managers, accounts clerks, and other interested individuals {{more}}responsible for the financial management in their organization, or those wishing to understand the fundamentals of financial management.

Scheduled for August 24 to 28, 2015, the seminar is entitled “Introduction to Record Keeping” and takes place at the NIS training room. It would be held under the theme “Good Record Keeping to Ensure Business Success.”

According to CED’s training coordinator Keisha Phillips, this particular seminar has not been held recently and more and more the demand is there for it. She says it is also a good time for persons who have had this training previously to retool and refresh, since good record keeping is fundamental to the success of any business.

As the first Module in CED’s Financial Management training, the Record Keeping Seminar will provide participants with an understanding of the basics of book keeping. Participants will also learn how to record and depreciate fixed assets, record credit sales and payments, reconcile bank statements, and prepare petty cash books. They will also learn how to record cash sales and payments, prepare, analyze and interpret financial statements, as well as record keeping for Value Added Tax (VAT).

Registration for the Record Keeping Seminar closes on Friday, August 14, 2015. Interested persons can contact the CED office.
