We will teach you the software, assuming that you have never used it before so that we don't leave anyone behind. Since QuickBooks can be an expensive program and does not offer a free trial, you do not need access to the QuickBooks 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 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 25 lessons away from learning the skills it takes to manage the transactions and finances for your business – or your employer's business – with QuickBooks.

Lesson 1: Introduction to QuickBooksThe purpose of QuickBooks is to give businesses the power to do all of their own accounting, including invoicing, payroll, and paying bills, right from the convenience of their desktop computer, possibly eliminating the costly expense of a full time accountant.
Lesson 2: Setting Up QuickBooksYou will install your QuickBooks software like you would any other software program. Follow the instructions that pop up on your screen. You will be able to choose where the program will be saved on your hard drive, as well as other common aspects.
Lesson 3: Navigating QuickBooksIf you've never used QuickBooks before or have been using a much older version, this tour will help you to become familiar with the organizational structure of the program.
Lesson 4: The Chart of AccountsSimply put, the chart of accounts is a list of equity, liability, asset, and expense accounts.
Lesson 5: Setting up Customers, Jobs, and VendorsYour customers, jobs, and vendors keep your business in business. That said, it's important to take the time to set them up correctly in QuickBooks.
Lesson 6: Working with ItemsEverything that we will learn to add to invoices, purchase orders, and etc. will be an item that we will learn to add in this lesson.
Lesson 7: Creating More ListsLists are what makes QuickBooks so simple to use, because all of the information you need to use the program is already there for you - in one of your several lists.
Lesson 8: Paying Expenses and BillsYou will want to enter all the bills and expenses you receive into QuickBooks so your accounts stay up-to-date.
Lesson 9: Working with Bills, Deposits, and CreditsIn this lesson, we are going to continue to build on what we learned in the last lesson. We are going to talk more about bills; however, we are also going to talk about deposits, discounts, credits, and reimbursable expenses.
Lesson 10: Creating InvoicesInvoices are bills that you send customers. When a customer buys something from you and doesn't pay upon receipt, you bill them by sending an invoice.
Lesson 11: Recording Payments and SalesIn this lesson, we are going to continue to learn how to create different types of invoices, including invoices for backorders and cosigned products.
Lesson 12: Tracking Time and MileageIt's important that you are able to track time and mileage. QuickBooks gives you the tools to do both.
Lesson 13: Producing StatementsA statement is a type of report that you can send your customers. It shows all the charges and payments made to that customer during the statement period.
Lesson 14: Collecting and Tracking Money from CustomersIn this lesson, you are going to learn how to enter those payments into QuickBooks, deposit the money into the bank, track the amount that is owed, and even add finance charges.
Lesson 15: Managing Bank Accounts and Credit CardsIn this lesson, we are going to focus on managing your bank accounts using QuickBooks.
Lesson 16: Managing LoansChances are, your business will have to borrow money at some point or other. You will want to track the loan, along with the asset purchased with the loan, just as you track your income and expenses.
Lesson 17: PayrollIf you don't want to pay for payroll services, and you insist on doing it yourself, we'll show you how to use QuickBooks to do your payroll.
Lesson 18: Making Journal EntriesA journal entry is a logging of transactions into an accounting journal. Each of the transactions recorded is either a debit or credit. The total amount for the debits must equal the total number of credits or the journal is unbalanced. This is called double entry accounting.
Lesson 19: End of Year TasksThen comes the end of the year, and you suddenly find yourself overwhelmed with even more accounting tasks. The good news is that QuickBooks will do most of your year-end tasks for you. All that you have to do is prepare it.
Lesson 20: Taking Care of Your QuickBooks FilesIn this lesson, we are going to focus on ways to protect and maintain the data you've entered into QuickBooks, as well as your company file.
Lesson 21: Purchasing and Entering InventoryQuickBooks allows you to enter and track your inventory using the program. However, before you can do that (as with most things QuickBooks), you must do a few things.
Lesson 22: Sales TaxIn this lesson, we're going to walk you through the steps of setting up your business to collect and pay sales tax using QuickBooks.
Lesson 23: Setting Up A Budget in QuickBooksYou do not have to create a budget in order to use QuickBooks as your accounting program. It's an optional feature for people and companies who want to use it. It is also a very beneficial feature because it helps you plan your income and spending.
Lesson 24: ReportsQuickBooks gives you the ability to run several different types of reports. We are going to talk about these in this lesson, as well as teach you how to run them.
Lesson 25: Online Banking with QuickBooksWhen you connect QuickBooks with your bank accounts, you then have the ability in QuickBooks to download balances and transactions from your bank account.
