This event will bring local experts who can help you get a clear perspective accounting choices and structures.

We plan to go over some very basic concepts as groundwork that can set a solid foundation. Things like;

• Basic accounting terms (asset, liability, revenue, Cost of goods sold, Operating Expenses, Gross profit, net profit, fixed expense, variable expense) • Basic accounting principles (measurement, matching, recognition, etc.)

• Balance sheet & Income statements (can’t fly without knowing what the instruments are saying)

• Cash-flow planning & budgeting.

• Profitability vs. solvency. The first doesn’t always mean the second.

• Capital requirements (equip, raw material, inventory, etc.)
