​What you will learn

You will gain a sound working knowledge of how to set up a CRA-compliant bookkeeping system for a small business; how to analyze transactions and report these within the accounting cycle in a double-entry bookkeeping system using accounting software, and then present financial statements to the accountant for tax preparation and review.

You’ll also gain an understanding and appreciation for the professional and ethical requirements of a bookkeeper.

I started the program because I wanted that piece of paper, and the confidence to do what I do. I run two home-based businesses. That makes it all the more important to me to gain more knowledge and confidence because I do not have anyone to fall back on when I have questions.
