Small businesses will learn to identify ways to streamline bookkeeping activities and efficiently improve financial features of your business using QuickBooks software. Learn how to choose the type of QuickBooks software that is best for your business and how to set it up with users, create templates and banking feeds. You will learn how to create estimates, invoicing, sales orders and receipts. In addition, you will learn how to track inventory, purchase orders, and bank reconciliation. QuickBooks is useful software for payroll reporting of 1099 employees, tracking your payroll and sales taxes. You are able to create balance sheets, and record profits and loss.
