What is Finance?

Finance training coursesFrom a business, personal and public perspective, finance entails the acts of saving, lending and even making money. Finance can also be applied in the analysis of which markets are marking money and later, planning and strategising for investment. In this complex field, factors such as time, money and risk are taken into consideration both as independent entities and in their relationships with each other and their effects on financial input and output.

Just as finance is varied, training courses in finance come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Available courses may be specific to any branch of the financial sector, specific job roles as well as specialized tasks or skills or even religious financial training (for example Islamic Banking). Whether you are a broker wishing to brush up in investment strategy, a senior manager needing skills in financial management or an accountant seeking to advance their skills in computerised payroll, there is a training course for you.

Accounting and bookkeeping

Accounting is the practice of documenting a company’s resources in terms of input, output and allocation. This type of documented information holds high value to a company as it allows them to interpret financial results over time as well as compare them with market competitors.

Due to the technical nature of this type of work, many companies employ a highly skilled accountant or bookkeeper. Beyond the compilation and management of financial information, their role is extended to the presentation of financial information to all stakeholders of the company, including owners, employees, suppliers, customers, financiers and investors. In the case of doubt over the accuracy of any financial data, an audit may be conducted.

Payroll and taxes

Training and courses in FinanceCompliance with payroll and tax regulations within a business is imperative to success. As a payroll administrator, you are responsible for the calculating employee salaries with the inclusion of payroll conversion, parental leave, sick leave, holiday allowances, benefit, control and more. Further, it is important to be well-versed and up-to-date on all relevant labour and personal data protection legislation, ensuring that the company is operating within their legal limits, therefore avoiding costly repercussions. Since regulations on administration are highly dynamic, compliance training can be helpful.

Salary administration as an aspect of payroll is among a payroll professional’s most paramount tasks. This is both because of its place as the company’s largest expenditure and employees rights and dependence on their salaries. Periphery aspects of salary administration include tax benefits, exemptions, allowances, and audit exemptions that may be available to small and medium-sized businesses.

Financial Analysis

Financial analysis entails the assessment of the viability, stability and profitability of a business, sub-business or project. This is determined through economic indicators of an organization and its activities such as customer satisfaction and the allocation of resources, operating margins, price/earning ratios, equity ratio, debt/turnover ratio, return on equity, return on assets, return on capital employed, capital turnover and staff turnover. Measures such as these are valuable indicators of the efficiency and economic success of an organisation.

Financial Management

The role of a financial manager is to manage the day-to-day operations of a finance department as well as provide financial advice and support to their clients or employers. Typical duties of a financial manager vary considerably by company, but might include the preparation of financial statements, accounting, payroll, reconciliation, supplier and customer invoices as well as the calculation, planning and monitoring of funds and resources. Due to the high-stakes quality of these responsibilities, it is essential that financial managers are fully and formally trained as well as have a strong interest and background in numbers. Knowledge on basic business law contracts, claims and sales contracts is also a valuable asset, as is knowing how to manage debts.

Investment Banking

Investment banking comprises a significant portion of financial activity within many companies as well as the world of banking. Common divisions of work within this field include merchant banking, corporate finance, and capital markets. Further, the uses of investment banking are varied and can be potentially highly profitable. Accordingly, companies often issue shares or bonds in order to raise capital and/or participants in mergers and acquisitions. These behaviors are in close ties with capital marketing, as this is the practice of trading bonds, stocks and other financial products. Formal training in both hard financial skills and soft skills can help investment banking professionals to stay ahead of this highly-adaptive sector by providing them with the ability to innovate products and services.

Credit Control

Effective credit control is manner in which companies ensure that there is a consistent cash flow, thus avoiding excessive debt and costly penalties. Training in technical skills such as flow management, outsourced credit control, sales ledger management, credit control software, debt recovery and direct debt management help to provide financial professionals to stay up-to-date and find techniques for managing a high-stakes work load.
