About this course

It's important for everyone working in a group finance function or auditing group to have a strong understanding of consolidation basics.

This masterclass, led by Clare Jones of Future Finance Training, will give you the chance to extend your knowledge of the basic principles of consolidation, to understanding some of the more challenging areas of group accounting.

Attending Group accounting (advanced) will be an excellent opportunity for you to build on your learnings from the previous event, Introduction to group accounting. It is not required to have attended both, and the content across the two events isn't duplicated.

Who it's for

This masterclass is for all finance professionals who work in a group finance function with some experience of group accounting. If you are a finance professional who is required to submit adjustments to local accounts for consolidation purposes where more complex issues arise, this session is for you.
