QuickBooks Desktop Version Introduction for Beginners


Presented by: Don Lesser, President, Pioneer Training, Inc.

Don Lesser, of Pioneer Training, Inc. has been in a consultant and business owner for 30+ years. Don has been using QuickBooks since version 2.0 for MS-DOS.  He has taught QuickBooks for 20+ years as well as consulted in its use for a wide range of clients.  Don is not an accountant and does not provide accounting advice, but focuses on how to use QuickBooks to track your company’s income and expenses.

This is an introduction to the popular accounting program QuickBooks.  This will cover the desktop version only. The session will cover setting up a new company, invoicing and receiving payments, writing checks and paying bills. The session will end with a brief introduction to and overview of reports.  This session is suitable for those who have recently started using QuickBooks and those planning to use it. The basic principles of QuickBooks remain the same for the Windows, Macintosh, and on-line versions of the program although specific details of how to accomplish a task may differ slightly.  It is not required, but if you have a laptop or tablet and have QuickBooks loaded feel free to bring it and follow along.   

NOTE: This workshop is designed for training on the Basics of QuickBooks and is not intended to troubleshoot problems individuals may currently be experiencing. Those types of questions are better suited to a one-one consulting session.
