Course description

This leadership e-learning course is ideal for financial officers and team leaders. It covers the areas around financial reporting and the production of accurate financial updates.

The module begins by describing how the production of accurate financial updates and the comparison of actual results against budgets are part of the budgetary control process, resulting in financial update reports, which enable those responsible for meeting budget targets to track actual results against budget.

The two main components of financial updates are actual figures and budget figures. These are described in some detail, along with the creation of a financial update report, which has certain characteristics. It is important that the underlying accounting system must generate accurate data to ensure the integrity of the reports. Systems and criteria should be in place to check and clean the data regularly – this should follow a clear procedure. One output described is a monthly variance report – reasons for the variances are reviewed including operating conditions, inefficiencies, timing and poor budgeting.

Finally, the module concludes by emphasising the confidential nature of financial reporting.
