This practical programme will provide students with the foundational knowledge and practical skills required to perform the basic accounting and bookkeeping procedures required in the business environment. Students will learn how to create and maintain a set of books from source documents like cheques and invoices up to trial balance. They do not require prior bookkeeping or accounting knowledge, as the programme starts at the beginning of the bookkeeping process with an explanation of the differences between a debit and credit, and then gradually introduces students to more advanced concepts like bank reconciliation and Value Added Tax (VAT).
Course Duration: 14 weeks on Saturday mornings.
Cash Fee: R2500 (Fees on terms are also available)
