Basics of Accounting – The Language of Business

Accounting is the "language of business".   People in the business world - owners, managers, bankers, investors - use accounting terms and concepts to describe the events that make up the “story” of a business.  At its most fundamental level, accounting is the system of tracking the income, expenses, assets and liabilities of your business.  In this workshop, you will learn how to make journal entries including debits and credits, the structure of financial statements, important financial and performance ratios, ledgers, and, more importantly, how to "account" for the transactions in your business.

Jim Chamberlain of SCORE presents this workshop.  Jim has an MBA and is a CMA (Certified Management Accountant).  Jim has held financial positions with Dexter, General Dynamics and Statek Corporation, as well as an environmental start-up.  For ten years he was part owner, director, and CFO of Consolidated Reprographics, an Orange County leading reprographics company.  He also helped manage a privately held high technology company awarded as one of the top 50 fastest growing private companies in Orange County.  During his career, Jim has had extensive experience in merger and acquisition activity as both buyer and seller. He has prepared Business Plans, sold and purchased businesses and has helped entrepreneurs improve their cash flow.  Management Accounting is his specialty.  Jim has been active in various volunteer organizations, such as SCORE and United Way. He is also a past president and director of the Certified Management Accounting Society of Southern California (CMASSC).
