Class description: Do you struggle with how to account for and record the financial transactions of your agency? You’re not alone! This course will help you understand the basic accounting rules that govern how all transactions are recorded and how funds are tracked. You will also learn what is meant by double-entry accounting and natural account balances in your accounting structure so that you can make sense of your chart of accounts. We will explore the differences between accrual-based and cash-based accounting, strategies for making the most out of your accounting system, how to employ sound accounting policies and controls, and why nonprofits should not ignore sales tax consequences in their accounting transactions. Finally, once we know how the transactions are recorded, we will see how they come together to form financial reports so that staff, Board, and stakeholders have the information they need to support your organization’s mission. This class is taught by Wade Rogers, CPA
