Do you stare blankly at the Bal­ance Sheet and have no idea what it is telling you? Do strug­gle when report­ing your finan­cial data in CADAC?

This webi­nar will give you the nec­es­sary tools to under­stand the sto­ry that the Bal­ance Sheet tells about your organization.

Addi­tion­ally, we will dis­cuss the ways in which CADAC, your account­ing records and finan­cial state­ments inter­sect. From the best way to set up your books to com­mu­ni­cate with CADAC to the tricks used to under­stand this com­plex form, the ses­sion will make you more con­fi­dent when work­ing with these key doc­u­ments and forms.
