We Help Set Quick Books Up!


Although QuickBooks is designed for the layman to understand, the initial setup and installation must be done correctly in order for future information to be accurate.
All information necessary to setup manual accounting records is also necessary to setup and install QuickBooks on your desktop. This task is even more complicated if you switch from manual accounting operations to QuickBooks in the middle of the year.
Which accounting method will you use? What chart of accounts do you need for your business? How do you handle beginning balances?
An expert can easily answer all of these questions and complete the initial Setup and Installation in a timely manner. In addition, your accounting employees receive training on the accounting software to enhance their performance.
How much does it cost? We first want to find out a little more about your business and your accounting records before we quote you an exact price. Rest assured that we work with many small business owners and our rates are designed to fit the budgets of our clients.
As with any accounting software program, installation and training take time - time taken away from managing your business. Here's a short list of the services we provide during your QuickBooks setup:
    ›Study and evaluate your software and accounting needs.
    ›Recommend software and hardware requirements.
    ›Install software, design and set up chart of accounts and entire accounting package including payroll, accounts receivable, inventory, accounts payable, etc.
    ›Determination of your QuickBooks starting date
    ›Loading your chart of account and balances as of that starting date
    ›Preparation of a list of the items that you sell to your customers. This list includes services, inventory parts, non-inventory parts, other charges and sales taxes
    ›Entering your outstanding accounts receivable and accounts payable details as of your starting date
    ›Entering your ending statement bank balances and outstanding checks & deposits in transit as of your starting date
    ›Printing a trial balance as of your starting date and comparing it to your trial balance from your old system
    ›Entering your transactions since your starting dates into QuickBooks
    ›Train client or client staff in use of software to meet their accounting, management and tax needs.

Ongoing Services:
  • Follow up training to ensure the client is "on the right track".
  • Monthly, quarterly or annual review of client QuickBooks data to assist in tax preparation and management reports.

5 Reasons Why You Should Be Using Quickbooks



I am going to make an assumption that you are a small business person, or want to be. I I will do my best to convince you to use Quickbooks as an integral part of your accounting system. Though I am not employed by Intuit (the maker of Quickbooks); I do believe that it is the best choice for 99% of small businesses.
Fair warning: I take a different approach than most accountants who you have read.
Reason #1: You need to be tracking your income and expenses anyway, and Quickbooks gives you an easy way to do it.
Most accounting professionals will start off justifying this by saying that you need to track your income and expenses for tax purposes, and if you don't, you'll get into deep trouble.
While understandable, this kind of thinking gets people off on the wrong foot. While technically true, it's a misguided approach. Why are you in business anyway: to support the various levels of government? I didn't think so. It is a much better approach to understand that you need to keep good accounting records for you, to have a clearer understanding of where your money is coming from and where it's going.
If your accounting system is set up to optimize the information you need, doing tax reporting is not that difficult.
Reason #2: Quickbooks is simple to use.
Why is this important? Tools that are easy to use actually do get used. The Quickbooks people understand that real people are using their software, and make it a snap to record your business transactions.
Consider as well that although you are the primary or only user of your Quickbooks installation at present, this may change as your business expands, and you may hire someone to take care of your books. Wouldn't you rather flatten out the learning curve for someone learning your accounting system?
Reason #3: Quickbooks is inexpensive.
Now the fact that Quickbooks is not very expensive shouldn't be the only factor, or even the most important factor, in choosing it. However, the reality is that due to it's low price, it's not something that most businesses will need to put off buying.
Most likely, you can afford to go out and buy it today. I bought my copy of Quickbooks Pro 2007 for $100 with a coupon. Even without the coupon, it was only $150. So, it's not a huge investment.
Reason #4: Quickbooks is ubiquitous.
Quickbooks is everywhere! What that means is your accountant or bookkeeper will likely be familiar with it, and customized templates and add-ons (in the event you need them, which you probably don't) are easier to find than with other, less popular software.
There are also numerous online user groups available to answer your questions. Some of these groups are very active, with many knowledgable professionals participating.
In addition, if you hire someone to take care of data entry, as mentioned earlier in this article, you are likely to find someone already familiar with Quickbooks.
Reason #5: Quickbooks is compatible with many other software applications and online services.
You will probably be able to download transactions from your bank, although there are arguments for and against this practice and you need to decide what is best for you. Quickbooks also integrates with many other software packages such as inventory systems. This feature will minimize the need to double-enter data.
I have covered some of the major reasons that you should consider using Quickbooks in your small business. I believe it is the best choice for most small businesses' accounting system.

Why Small Businesses Should Consider QuickBooks



Companies often find maintaining their financial records as a challenge and are confused as to which system is best for their requirements. While there are a number of bookkeeping and accounting software in the market, QuickBooks has been one of the most widely used accounting systems in the United States. QuickBooks is also one of the most recommended systems for small enterprises as well as for home based businesses. There are many reasons why so many companies opt for QuickBooks and some of the benefits are as follows:
One of the main advantages of using QuickBooks is the reporting aspect of the system. Companies can generate customized reports and learn about their performance and other financial aspects. You can print graphs and charts to compare cash inflow towards the business and revenue you are generating. You can use the customized reports to compare data over years such as comparing data from the past year with current year performance. This gives a clear picture to the business owner as to which direction their company is heading towards.
Another benefit of using QuickBooks accounting system is that it will help you manage all your expenses. It keeps track of all the checks you are signing and also your credit card payments to keep you informed about where your money is going. There is an extremely simple way to enter the transactions in the system which makes sure that you do not forget to record even a single expense that you made.
Not only does QuickBooks helps you keep track of your expenses and generate user friendly reports, but it also helps you in creating estimates and take care of your entire billing requirement. With the help of this system, businesses can draw up an estimate in no time and use the same system to generate invoices for particular jobs.
QuickBooks can also help companies in tax planning and calculating their taxation liabilities for the financial year. Depending upon the data entered into the system like your expenditures and your incomes, the system would be able to calculate your final tax amount that needs to be paid at the end of the financial year.
Many entrepreneurs or small business owners find that systems like QuickBooks allow them to effectively manage their financial records and more importantly allow them to spend more time on other core business activities instead of worrying about their accounting requirements.
