Most often, businesses do complain that accuracy of finance costs (Bank charges) to them is not clear or transparent.  The financial costs (bank charges) take prominence in amount in the annual audited financial statements. There are dangers inherent in allowing banks to burden organisations with arbitrary charges. 

This training is for finance staff of organizations to be able to calculate, ascertain and recover excess bank charges wherever they exist. Participants will also learn the process by which to make it impossible for a bank to debit their organizations' and personal accounts arbitrarily in the future. 

Many company executives think that the monthly bank reconciliation statements prepared by their staff are enough for the integrity of their bank account positions.  Some executives are even of the opinion that the statutory auditors would have taken care of this during the annual audits.  A bank reconciliation statement is merely aimed at agreeing the bank statement with the bank account kept by the company.  Calculation and Recovery of Excess Bank Charges require people to be specially trained.
