Everything You Wanted to Know About QuickBooks But Were Afraid To Ask

On March 25, Marie Gibson of Gibson, Gale & Associates will discuss the power of QuickBooks. She will point out the common QuickBooks mistakes made by new users that affect their reports’ integrity and how to prevent them. She will also focus on the use of financial reports in managerial decision-making.
You should attend if: you are a small business owner and don’t know how to set-up and use QuickBooks to keep track of your business finances; If you are using QuickBooks and you can’t understand your reports or how to use them for making wise business decisions. If you are using QuickBooks and you’ve been ignoring mistakes that prevent you from using your financials; If you are an accountant, bookkeeper or CPA and become frustrated with the software.

By the time you leave the luncheon you will understand the difference in QuickBooks versions: Pro, Premier, Enterprise, Mac, and Online and know the tips for choosing the best one for your company. You will be ready to take on the world of business accounting!
