What can Backbone provide?

Accounting training

Before you can "teach" computer software or Excel to do your work, you must first be a master in the underlying subject matter. Our accounting training programs cover various aspects of accounting, including financial reporting, budgeting and forecasting, financial analysis, and internal controls. Our experienced trainers provide practical guidance and insights, using real-world examples and case studies to help your team understand the accounting principles and best practices.

Spreadsheet training

Excel is a powerful tool that can greatly enhance productivity and accuracy in accounting tasks. Mastering Excel is not about knowing all the Excel functions (a.k.a. formulas). It is about applying the right functions to the context. We tailor our Excel training programs to meet the specific needs of your accounting team. We cover topics such as advanced formulas and functions, data manipulation, data visualisation, etc. Our hands-on approach ensures that your team gains practical skills that can be immediately applied in their day-to-day tasks.

We also share our expertise in Excel through our YouTube channel, Excel Clinic. On our channel, you can find a wide range of informative videos that cover various use cases of Excel in common accounting scenarios. From creating custom templates for financial statements, to automating data analysis and reporting, to optimising formulas for complex calculations, our videos provide practical guidance and insights on how to effectively use Excel for accounting tasks.
