An Annual Report is all about presenting your company’s results to the public. Be the public the government officials, investors, owners, suppliers or employees, it’s a detailed summary of what happened during the financial year with all the relevant information that’s needed to further understand the content behind numbers. Various parties are interested in different information and the depth of information is subject to the interest level; however that’s going into too much detail for an introduction.
What we offer with our course is in fact a simple understanding of what an Annual Report really is, how it is composed and what are the general pitfalls to look out for. We try to bring all this to you with simple words making sure the key messages are stressed and brought forward. What we’ll also introduce you to is the information to disclose in all relevant notes and what’s usually expected to be seen there.
To further enhance your experience from the course, we’ve also prepared a template of an Annual Report (both in Excel as a working form and Word as the end result with text). A template that you can put into use straight away to build up your own Annual Report and to also edit and add extra information as needed. It’s more of a “to get you started” purpose the template really serves. However, to give you an idea of what and how, we’ve also made an example Annual Report. It should give you an even better understanding of what’s expected from you.
Just to add a bit of extra tools, we’ve also added in a checklist that should help you along the way to ensure your final document is ready and has considered all there is to be watchful about when preparing your Annual Report.
The course itself is structured with the aim to have it easily follow able and understandable with examples to illustrate where possible. There will be just simple words and everything written in “down to earth” style for an easy and quick understanding.
But enough about the introduction, let’s go!
