Managing Your Business: Using QuickBooks to Manage your Business
Tuesday, December 6, 6:00 PM
As a business owner, the primary value of QuickBooks, or any accounting software, is to provide you with the financial and management data that will help you effectively manage your business. Additionally, it should provide you with consistently accurate data for the preparation of any tax or compliance forms required by government or industry agencies. Whether you are using an outside accountant, an internal bookkeeper, or doing the bookkeeping yourself, you need to have a fundamental understanding of how the accounting software generates the numbers that make up your financial and performance reports and understand how the daily bookkeeping processes categorize the data that is used in the reports.
