About this time of year, we get lots of (frantic) questions from folks on how they can pull together their financial information to file their tax return.
So – we are very excited to be offering a brand new workshop series, aimed to help small business owners and independent professionals get a solid handle on their financial management.
Hope to see you there!
For “solepreneurs” and independent professionals
Tuesdays from February 12 –March 5
Centre for Social Innovation, 720 Bathurst Street
This is a practical, hands-on series.
You will receive information, exercises and hands-on support, and walk away with what you need to organize your finances and manage your money.
We will explore what financial information you need to track, why you need to track it and the most effective and pain-free way to manage your books.
The workshop is offered in 4 sessions over 4 weeks:
- 2 information sessions
- 2 hands-on laboratory sessions.
Each information session is followed by a laboratory session – this allows participants to apply the information they learn throughout the week and return with their specific questions and road-blocks.
Enrollment is limited for maximum individual attention – be sure to sign up early to ensure your spot.
Week 1: BOOKKEEPING BASICS
What information do you need to track? What is the best application to use for your particular situation? How do you use the software?
This session will help you identify what information you need to track and the best way to do it so that you are prepared for tax time and able to manage your business on an ongoing basis.
Week 2: LABORATORY
Bring your bookkeeping questions and issues for individual support.
Week 3: BUDGETING AND PLANNING
Now that you are tracking your finances, what do you do with the information? How do you develop a budget and use it to your best advantage?
This session will give the tools to put your financial information to good use for managing your business or practice.
Week 4: LABORATORY
Bring your budgeting questions for individual support
This workshop is offered by STAR Company. STAR Company provides bookkeeping services to businesses, non-profits and individuals. Visit our website for more information.
