say that accounting is "boring" or "too hard," but I
urge them not to fall into that trap. Instead of

care of your net assets as you would.”

programme all participants will be given an
opportunity to discuss their respective challenges,
which will enhance engagement and understanding.
“At the end of this workshop each participant will
be able to: Keep accurate books and records; Make
informed financial / business / staffing decisions;
Properly manage and plan their tax filing
obligations; Plan their business cash flow; Know
where they stand financially and pay only as much
tax as is legally required,” he concluded.
