Event Details

Bookkeeping and accounting is the opaque province of bookkeepers and accountants.

  • It is debit and credit concepts that defy gravity.
  • It is incomprehensible jargon.
  • And, its practitioners are witch doctors appointed to administer relief to the financially disabled in return for money.

But don’t despair, if you can read a nutrition label on a can of beans this presentation is for you!   It’s an hour or so of indispensable clarification of an obscure but essential process. 

It’s a discussion about:

  •  Gathering and entering data.

  • A process of data analysis to help with -

  • Regulatory compliance

  • Extraction of information

  • Financial control

  • The structure of financial statements

  • Examination of financial statements of two small businesses, one a success, the other a failure.

  • Why Cost of Goods data is critical

  • Simple but powerful financial ratios

  • Relationship to tax returns

  • Where to begin and how to get it done.

  • Why this stuff is difficult.

  • Use of popular small business accounting programs.

  • Finding and engaging expert help.

  • Use of IRS and NM Tax & Rev information.

  • A cautionary overview of NM Gross Receipts Tax
