TRAINING AND SUPPORT
We have learnt a lot in our 20 years supporting non-profit organisations - our training draws on that expertise and seeks to empower participants and build capacity.
- Understanding Financial Reports - bust the jargon and empower your Board or staff to understand financial reports and make good decisions based on a solid understanding of non-profit financial reporting. We can tailor a session to your organisation including using your own reports as examples during the training.
Xero Training and Support - get your team to competency quickly or utilise our expertise to iron out wrinkles in your processes. Training can be provided in person or online.
FINANCIAL SYSTEMS ASSESSMENT
AFG can review your financial systems and processes and help you move them to the modern era. Our financial systems assessment takes a broad approach to reviewing your current finance systems and processes to reveal the strengths and weaknesses from compliance, process, risk and efficiency perspectives. We interview key stakeholders identified by you, observe finance processes in action and review policy and procedure documents as well as your current reporting output. We provide a report of our findings and make practical recommendations for improvements with a focus on improving efficiency and effectiveness.
Accounting For Good was an early adopter of Xero's cloud accounting software - it is our preferred accounting platform for the efficiency and transparency it enables, ease of use (any device, anywhere, anytime) and the ability to support our clients in real-time. The integrated reporting platform and ability to engage managers with their financial information provides visibility and accountability and increases the richness of understanding about the organisation's financial performance and position.
Xero is a user-friendly software and the data conversion process has been supported by Xero and JetConvert for a number of years. Accounting For Good can help you get to competency quickly by bringing our comprehensive knowledge of Xero (and its add-on ecosystem) to your implementation project. We know it can be slow going while you learn your way around new software - AFG can short-cut that process and get you knowledgeable, comfortable and productive quickly.
