Recordkeeping Habits for Small Businesses and Non-Profits
This workshop is an introduction to bookkeeping and recording-keeping for people with small businesses and micro-enterprises looking to get a better grasp of their records and financial information so they can make better business decisions. Participants will understand how record-keeping can effect different business entities; know what they need from a bookkeeping or if they need a bookkeeper; reach out to a bookkeeper if they need one; take the first steps to getting their records and books organized; recognize the system they have in place and potentially know where it needs improvement or not. We’ll ask questions like: Do I need to improve record-keeping? What is the difference between bookkeeping and record-keeping? How can I improve my books and records? What are some practices to improve my records? To answer these questions, we’ll have some brief lectures on key vocabulary and concepts, go over case studies together as a class, and apply what we learn to what participants are thinking about in the day-to-day running of their businesses.
Join us for more Business Basics Workshops throughout the year.
