Introduction to Desktop QuickBooks and Financial Management

Accounting is much more than how you keep score in business. It’s also how you insure your business is healthy and has the resources needed to grow. Whether you use the services of an independent professional like a bookkeeper or accountant, or you decide that you or a family member will keep the books, you need to understand some accounting basics.

SCORE Vancouver’s Introduction to Desktop QuickBooks is a simple and hands-on way to get started with the tool that over 4 million US businesses use for their accounting records and financial reporting. We’ll show you the mechanics of recording basic transactions with real world examples. More importantly, you'll learn how accounting and financial reporting are inter-related, helping you understand what is affected by each transaction. Most importantly, the class offers a separate no cost opportunity to meet with a SCORE mentor to review your use of QuickBooks and address any questions you may have.

Many business owners get lost in the special language of accounting. When you finish this class, you’ll have a better understanding of those terms and why they are important to you and your business. Most importantly, this is a practical class, not a boring theoretical lecture about accounting. Our volunteer instructor, Ted Powell, like all SCORE volunteers, is a down-to-earth, experienced business guy.  After the class, you can follow-up on your learning with SCORE’s always-free individual counseling. Copies of most classroom illustrations will be provided through a link.

SCORE volunteers are seasoned business professionals which explains why this intimate hands-on seminar is a great bargain.
