This course will cover the areas of FMS that are needed for the smooth closure of accounts. It is essential before undertaking any year end processes in FMS that you have read and understood all necessary guidance from the local authority.
Each school/local authority may have different account policies so no specific advice will be given on accounting practices and any accounting assumptions made in the guide are for training purposes only.
