Learning level: Fundamental

Being able to understand and use financial statements is a critical skill to have in order to give effective advice to your business or family law clients.

At this introductory workshop, Chartered Professional Accountants experienced in working with lawyers will teach you basic accounting concepts, along with what financial statements reveal about a company's performance and viability.

You will also learn what financial statements do not tell you. You will increase confidence in your ability to review financial statements, explain them to your clients, and use them to benefit your negotiations or case.

Popular and well-loved, this course is as a past attendee said "one of the most effective CLEs that I have attended."

After taking this workshop, you will be able to:

  • understand the principles involved in creating a set of financial statements
  • assess the financial position and operating performance of a company after reading a set of financial statements
  • recognize the different types of public accountant reports and the reliance that can be placed on each
