LV Board Skills Builder:
Understanding Financial Statements
Not for Profit organisations are not primarily focused on making profits, however, if their finances are not well managed, they are in as much danger as commercial businesses of becoming insolvent and failing.
The majority of board members aren't accountants but the need to understand the financial position of the organisation is fundamental to being able to make the right decisions. Leadership Victoria's workshop will enable you to:
- Understand the fundamentals of financial reports
- Learn how to read a balance sheet, profit and loss and cash flow statement
- Understand the difference between cash accounting and accrual accounting
- Understand the terminology used in financial statements
- Develop confidence in communicating with financial specialists eg auditor, treasurer
