Course Description

QuickBooks is an accounting software program created by Intuit for small businesses and self-employed professionals that allows you to keep track of your company's transactions and finances – all from a single, intuitive, and easy-to-use software program. This course is for anyone who wants to learn QuickBooks. You'll learn all the skills that you need to know to use the software properly to manage transactions and finances for your business.

QuickBooks 2014 is the latest version of the QuickBooks family of accounting software. Made for small to medium sized businesses, as well as the self-employed, QuickBooks 2014 gives businesses the power to complete most accounting tasks themselves without hiring a full-time accountant to do it for them (although consulting an accountant is always recommended for any business).   

QuickBooks 2014 allows businesses to easily:

·     Add customers, vendors, and inventory to QuickBooks

·     Create and generate invoices

·     Record and pay bills

·     Enter and track inventory

·     Add and manage bank accounts, as well as other expense and income accounts including credit cards

·     Balance bank accounts

·     Track company vehicle mileage

·     Enter bills to pay vendors

·     Print checks to pay bills

·     Create budgets

·     Create payroll schedules and payroll checks

·     Pay tax liabilities

·     Generate and customize various financial reports

·     Customize templates to match the needs of your business

·     And more

This course was created for anyone who wants to learn QuickBooks. Whether you signed up simply to learn QuickBooks 2014 or are a complete newbie to the software does not matter.   We will teach you the software, assuming that you have never used it before so that we don't leave anyone behind. Since QuickBooks 2014 can be an expensive program and does not offer a free trial, you do not need access to the QuickBooks 2014 software to use this course; however, it is encouraged to have a working copy if possible so that you can work along with the optional assignment activities. Again, having the QuickBooks 2014 software installed and ready for use on your computer is not a requirement, but it is recommended. If you don't have the software, you can review the lessons and the accompanying HD videos to still learn what QuickBooks can do and how you can go about doing it!
You're just 18 lessons away from learning the skills it takes to manage the transactions and finances for your business – or your employer's business – with QuickBooks 2014.
