Accounting for prepaid expenses is easier than you think if you have the right tools at your disposal. But to do it… you need to accurately maintain the record of all prepaid expenses on your computer for an accurate profit or loss each period end (monthly/quarterly and yearly)
And Therefore it is quite crucial to have a Robust Prepaid Expenses Schedule (for an Accountant/Analyst/Auditor) and Microsoft Excel is a great tool for this task
As we go through the example, I’ll teach you hands-on techniques to maintain a robust prepaid expenses schedule that will help you accurately determine:
The portion of prepaid expenses to be charged to the income statement/profit and loss statement each month
Prepaid expenditure balances for monthly balance sheet reviews
Forecast or budget prepaid expenses for future periods
Impact on cashflow of business due to prepaid expenses spending (high or low)
How to allocate prepaid expenditures each month to various divisions or cost centers accurately (using Power Query and Pivot tables) with just few clicks (fully automated approach)
How to make sure that prepaid expenditure GL (balance sheet) is accurately maintained (cross checking integrity of GL entries to detect and prevent errors and frauds)
And I teach you all of this using Microsoft Excel!
Not only will I give you the models I’ve built, but also help you improve your ability to use the various functions of Excel:
IF Function (nested IF)
Lookup and Match Function
And much more
Once you have a solid grasp of those, I’ll show you how to combine the above functions to create powerful formulas!
It doesn’t stop there…
We’ll use Power Query (Get and Transform) and Pivot Tables as well!
And we’ll even cover some Excel VBA.
At end of the course, you will have a clear and practical understanding of how prepaid expenses accounting works and how you can use Microsoft Excel efficiently to calculate accurate prepaid expenses charge, prepaid expenses balance and forecast prepaid expenses for future periods.
Your co-workers and your boss will be very impressed when you show up with these new skills! For the price I have it at… it’s worth every penny!
