A 2-Day Workshop on
Using Financial Statements for Decision Making


Financial statements are key documents that give any interested person an insight into the financial aspects of any business from the large PLCs or MNCs to the small sole trader. Understanding these statements and being able to use them effectively enable any managers or professionals to evaluate the financial performance as well as the financial position of the entity in determining the relationship risks with the said entity. Such relationships may include investing, business partnership, credit assessment, etc. Furthermore, the ability to read analyze and interpret financial data in these financial statements of an entity is no longer an advantage but rather the inability to do so is considered a serious handicap.
