QuickBooks Online Accounting- Start Up Process - 9/20/17 


This introductory five-hour seminar will assist you in getting started with the QuickBooks Online accounting system. We will cover the recording of your financial transactions from all sources into QuickBooks. Recordkeeping concepts, accounting principles and some tax aspects will be covered as well. A case study will be used so you will be able to follow all steps from data entry to generation of financial statements. We will also try to address any unique bookkeeping issues relative to your business. You will need to bring your laptop to be involved since you will be accessing QuickBooks from your laptop. For those who have already registered with the QuickBooks Online version you will need a secondary email address to access the software. This is an introductory session to the online version of QuickBooks only and you may need additional assistance from qualified professionals to expand your use of the accounting software post-workshop.
