Learning accounting for small businesses can be a very rewarding experience. Accounting is practical and can be put to good use, benefiting small businesses which are often run without any accounting knowledge or standard practices. Small business accounting (USA Standards) involves the basics of the accounting cycle plus inventory control, if needed. Accounting does not need to be complicated or difficult, it can be simple and effective for a small firm.

This Diploma course covers all of the relevant and up-to-date information that need to be included and what systems should be used to record them. This course clearly defines how to improve and forecast cash flow, how to budget in business, and outlines how to respond to purchase or sales invoices. There is also a module explaining the importance of good credit control, including how to successfully speak to and deal with late-paying customers. This course gives you a complete and accurate skill set which includes the day-to-day financial operations tasks carried out by small to medium-sized businesses.

Our online programme is so well designed that you feel as if you are in the classroom. This course is comprised of professionally narrated e-Learning modules, interactive quizzes, tests and exams. All delivered through a system that you will have access to 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for 365 days (12 months). Effective support service, and study materials (including step by step guided tutorial videos) build your confidence to study efficiently and guide you to secure your qualification.
