About the course

The way SMEs approach financial control needs to be different to the approach of large organisations. SMEs are not distracted by share prices and can afford to think long term.

In this course, David Allen encourages accountants to be proactive in the management of their businesses; looking both outwards and forwards and dealing with the inevitable uncertainties that entails. It looks at how new concepts such as risk management and corporate social responsibility should be considered alongside more traditional techniques like standard costing and budgetary control.

The course contains advice on how to develop a comprehensive structure of financial control appropriate to today's conditions. The course concludes by looking at how accountants can prepare for a change of ownership.
