The Focus

Every entrepreneur needs to keep accurate records for a range of purposes. Under tax law, you’re required to keep records relating to income tax, GST or VAT, and payments to employees among other things. It can be difficult to set up your own system without a bookkeeping background, which is why this course is the perfect fit for any entrepreneur. Our resident expert, Amanda De Koning, will break down the basics of business financials and taxes to provide you with essential guidance that you can use to take control of your business finances.

The Format

The format of this course will consist of an approximately 30 minute lecture by Mrs. De Koning followed by a Q&A session lasting about 20 minutes. Although we model the new EFC format after collegiate courses, we respectfully ask all in attendance to refrain from asking questions during the lecture portion so as to give Mrs. De Koning ample time to get through her material.

Keep the Conversation Going

Refreshments will be available for purchase downstairs at the Skyline Cafe before and after class. We ask that you exercise good stewardship and help us keep the facility in good order by cleaning up after yourself. Once class is officially over for the day, we encourage ongoing information exchange and networking while maintaining appropriate social distancing. If you have any questions that did not get answered in class, please email them to us and we’ll either incorporate the responses into a future session or email you back directly.
