The Finance Game

Learn finance the fun way

The Finance Game

Are you just accepting that your treasurer or your auditor has got it right?

Do you know the questions to ask to understand the balance sheet?

Are you aware of your legal obligations?

Your Responsibilities

You have a responsibility as a committee or board member to understand the financial position of the organisation you’re representing.

But it’s hard to understand financial statements if you don’t know how they’re created. This can be tricky, especially when every organisation presents the information in a slightly different way.

Then there’s the hidden risk!

You can be held personally liable if you have been negligent in your legal obligations when reviewing and approving financial documents. You also need to protect the organisation from  trading insolvent which is a personal liability.

The larger an organisation, the larger the personal consequences for failing in your legal obligations.

I was in two minds. I thought it was going to be difficult. But then I also thought, oh, I know most of this and I was a bit overconfident. Well, because I'm here working with data all the time, I thought I knew most of this. But actually some things I did know and some things I was challenged by. But I feel more confident. And 'cause it was a game, I've been having fun using the different terms. So I feel more confident I can use the terms. But it actually gave me the confidence to ask the questions, and raised my awareness about what's going on.
