CPE Value Pack: Budgeting & Closing the Books

Budgeting is a common component of a company's system of controls, which the accounting department is frequently in charge of managing. A proper knowledge of closing the books is essential for providing accurate feedback about corporate results. When combined, budgeting and closing the books comprise the complete feedback system that a company requires. Budgeting and Closing the Books walk you through the details of how to create a budget, as well as close the books to which the budget is compared. The two CPE courses are now offered together as a value pack for 20% off their individual prices.
