About the Course

Understanding and interpreting financial information are essential at any business level. The full scope of financial data and reporting is supported by a foundation of the vital aspects of theory and practical methods and techniques.

Budgeting falls under the more extensive managerial accounting umbrella. It is focused on short-term forecasts, often based on engineering techniques. However, the models and approaches are not standardised, and no guidelines are provided by the accounting standards (as opposed to the financial accounting process). It is challenging as it should be adapted to different types of business and conditions; its methods are also applicable to single projects.

Cost Control is a system of accounting disclosures and operational interventions to define the business areas to which it is possible to reduce the number of costs in compliance with the previously programmed qualitative, quantitative and temporal objectives. Cost control is also essential to audit professionals and company managers. It helps improve the performances by analysing variances and the efficiency of the operations. Hence, cost control completes the analyses carried out through the budgeting, reinforcing the assumptions or identifying eventually misleading conclusions.

Therefore, this Effective Budgeting and Cost Control training course focus on modelling budgets with innovative approaches. Practical exercises will be performed during the training, and the delegates will be able to master the art of budgeting from scratch at different levels.
