SBDC Workshop – Keeping the Books

Do you know what your books are telling about your business? As a responsible owner or manager, you need to learn the “language of business.”

In this workshop, you’ll learn the fundamentals of basic bookkeeping tasks and how to use your chart of accounts. You’ll learn to record and match revenues & expenses, record receipts & disbursements, handle end-of-period closings, and read financial reports.
