POWELL, Wyo. - A three-part series of Friday "Bookkeeping and Beyond" seminars starts with "Accounting Fundamentals" from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Friday, Feb. 5 and 19, in the Worland Community Center Complex.
Jan Kraft, a certified management accountant and associate professor of accounting and business administration at Northwest College, leads all three seminars.
In the fundamentals class, she covers the basics of the financial cycle, with the goal of making sense out of any bookkeeping system (including QuickBooks). She'll show how to turn everyday events into meaningful reports through the use of transactions, journals, ledgers, debits, credits, balance sheets, income statements and cash flows.
Kraft is back in Worland from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Friday, April 9, to teach "Bookkeeping and Beyond: Introduction to Payroll Taxes." From FUTA to SUTA and FICA, she'll discuss what they are, how they're calculated, who pays them and when. She'll also offer insight into payroll tax rules and forms, and answer questions specific to individual's workplaces.
The final seminar, "Bookkeeping and Beyond: Budgeting 101," meets from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Friday, April 23. It covers the reasons and processes for building a budget and how to use one after it's in place.
The cost for the two-day seminar is $80; the second and third seminars are $40 apiece. Those who enroll in all three save $40 in registration fees, effectively getting one seminar for free.
