5. Evening on financial statements on 4 December 2018
HYY is organising an evening on financial statements aimed at the treasurers of organisations operating under HYY on 4 December. During the evening, you will learn how to make an association’s financial statements. Authorised Public Accountant Johanna Hilden will act as the trainer on the course, which is held in Wilhelmsson Hall at 5–8 pm. Unfortunately, the premises are not accessible.
The training session will include the use of the Tilitin software, so we ask that participants bring their own computers with them and install the program in advance. Tilitin can be downloaded for free here: http://helineva.net/tilitin/. There is a limited number of wall sockets on the premises, so we recommend that participants charge their computer before the event.
You can send questions to the trainer in advance. If you already know you will have several tricky problems with topics such as calculating the balance sheet, expenses included in the income statement, posting receipts or anything else related to creating financial statements, send your question to Johanna at johanna.hilden [at] outlook.com.
Sign up for the training session by 1 December using this e-form: https://elomake.helsinki.fi/lomakkeet/93274/lomake.html
