One of the foremost skills that an entrepreneur will have to learn is accounting. Even if you have personnel doing the bookkeeping of your business, or if you have hired an accountant to do it for you, it is mandatory that you understand the fundamentals of accounting and taxation.
For, if your objective is to earn profit, it follows that you need to be able to monitor and measure your income and expenses to achieve your objective. The good news is, there are a lot of institutions offering such types of trainings and seminars.
First, check out the website of the Philippine Institute of Certified Public Accountants (PICPA). Although they offer mainly for the continuing professional education of CPAs, they do offer seminars like tax updates once in a while.
Second, the website of PICPA Metro Manila Region Chapter actually provides more options. Aside from their accounting CPE seminars, they also offer seminars like accounting for non-accountants, financial statement analysis, tax updates, and others. So, don't forget to check PICPA MMR's schedule for the month.
Third, if you are interested in getting certification of your accounting skills, you might want to check out the website of the National Institute of Accounting Technicians (NIAT).
