Financial Accounting for Lenders
Wednesday-Thursday, February 2-3, 2022, 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. MST
A banker’s understanding of accounting fundamentals is essential to the application of sound financial statement and credit analysis. Accounting is the language employed to communicate financial information. It is the process of identifying and measuring economic events, then classifying, recording, and summarizing the measurements and reporting the information to permit judgments and decisions by the users. Bankers rely on this accountant prepared information to make such decisions.
Financial Accounting for Lenders presents the fundamentals of accounting, with a focus on the accounts that will be of most interest to a banker, identifying economic events and how they are reported in financial statements. By learning how the Balance Sheet, Income Statement, Reconciliation of New Worth and Cash Flow Statement are developed and connected to each other you will gain insights that will be critical in further developing your credit analysis skills. And having an instructor who is a banker ensures the approach to the credit analysis process will be from a banker’s perspective. Case studies will be used to reinforce concepts presented. Specifically, the course will cover:
  • Underlying Assumptions Used by Accountants
  • Rules of Debits and Credits

  • Difference between Accrual and Cash Basis Accounting
  • Analysis of Accounts often used as Collateral such as

    • Inventory (Effect of LIFO, FIFO, and Average Cost Costing Methods)
    • Fixed Assets (Effect of varying Depreciation Methods)
  • Analysis of the Notes to the Financial Statements
  • Types of Financial Statements and Meaning of CPA Opinions
  • Review of Major Accounting Standards and Where to Find Them
After completing this program, you will be able to:
  • Describe the purpose of each financial statement and how they are constructed

  • Determine how specific business activities impact financial statements and how they are connected
  • Calculate earnings, equity, and cash flow for a business
