Free Financial Management Training for Community, Voluntary Organisations and Charities throughout Nottinghamshire.
Most people who join a group, either as a volunteer or a paid worker, do so because of a commitment they have to the aims of that group. People don’t join a group because they like accounting, or managing staff. But of course, as soon as a group starts to get organised - maybe receiving some grants and donations and employing paid staff - it needs good and effective management.
This short taster training session is aimed at trustees, volunteers and staff members of small charitable organisations with little or no knowledge/experience of book-keeping.
It will cover:
• Good practice around charity accounting;
• Financial controls;
• How to enter receipts & payments transactions on a suitable manual/excel system;
• Bank reconciliations;
• The principles behind double entry bookkeeping, for example invoicing;
• Reporting back to your trustees.
