Ledger for year-end audit - Coast Women in Business


Join Coast Women in Business on Thursday, October 8, 2020 via Zoom video conferencing and learn how to understand financial statements.

CPA Jerry Murphy will cover what the reporting objectives are for your financial statements as well as what you’ll need to be aware about when you look at your financial statements. He’ll also discuss a couple of specific financial statements, your company’s balance sheet and your income statement. Jerry will go over what each statement is reporting and how the two statements relate to each other.

In addition, you’ll learn how you can use your business’s financial statements to pull important information out about your company. This includes a series of analytical procedures that you can do very easily as well as a few important ratios of which you need to be aware.

Last but not least, you’ll have the opportunity to ask Jerry any questions so you can apply the principles he’ll discuss to your own situation.

During our virtual meeting, feel free to put any questions in chat so that presenter and moderators can make sure you get the information you need. We can all sip a ☕ beverage 🍵 of our choice in lieu of the complimentary coffee and tea we usually provide at our in-person meetings.
