Information


Using Accruals for a Better Organisation

Accrual accounting and budgeting can have a major impact on your efficiency and accountability, but can also lead to an overload of information. Having accruals in place does not automatically translate into the desired benefits. Without a thorough understanding of specificities in the public sector, of the interplay between accounting, budgeting and reporting as well as of decision-making and controlling, the cost of accruals can even surpass their benefits.






Get the Complete Picture – Strengthen Accountability, Decision-Making and Sustainable Planning

This international seminar will provide you with in-depth insights on the differences between accruals and cash, various challenges organisations faced while implementing accruals and on how to harvest the full potential of accruals. We will i.a. focus on:

  • Accruals for decision-making and management control
  • Implications for governance, financial reporting and accountability
  • Adapting business processes to an accrual basis
  • Translating accrual statements into meaningful budget reports under IPSAS

  • How do you implement accrual accounting and budgeting within your organisation?
  • What are pros and cons of accruals and how do you harvest the benefits for decision-making and managerial control?
  • Which challenges might you encounter while implementing accrual accounting and budgeting?
  • How do you embed accruals in your business processes and organisational culture?
  • How do you have to adjust your data collection and IT systems for a functional accrual system?
