Running a business in building and construction is challenging as the playing field is always moving. Particularly when it comes to changing regulations and your accounting and compliance obligations; not to mention doing what it takes to build a commercially successful business.

This workshop is a must for anyone wanting to understand the financial fundamentals required for businesses in the building and construction industry. Trained by accounting industry specialists this course will take a look at financial systems and reports, budgets and cashflows along with profit and loss statements.
