On March 14, 2012, Richard Lauzier, Financial Analyst at the SADC Côte-Nord, led the 5th edition of the SADC’s basic accounting workshop, which is offered free of charge to the SADC’s clients. An SADC Côte-Nord initiative, the purpose of this workshop is to help participants get a better grasp of financial sheets (i.e. balance sheets, statements of revenue and expenses, statements of retained income) and better understand certain basic ratios. All seven entrepreneurs who took part in the workshop said they were satisfied with its content. Moreover, most participants expressed their interest in taking a workshop that provided a more in-depth look into accounting, as well as other topics related to entrepreneurship.
