“QuickBooks boosts the accuracy of your small business accounting. In addition to keeping more accurate business records, the QuickBooks reports help owners and managers make better business decisions.” said Chrystal Irons, business development specialist and workshop instructor with University of Missouri Extension.

Attendees will learn how to navigate in the program and how to set up a new company. Irons will guide participants through setting up a company file, writing checks and understanding asset and liability accounts.

In addition the class will cover basic bookkeeping functions including: Sales/Invoicing; Customer Receipts; Paying Bills; Generating Standard Reports; and Bank Reconciliation.

“We’ll also cover the reports, charts, and graphs QuickBooks® creates for you, and review how you can customize reports for your specific business and managers, and how to customize invoices and statements to include your logo and messages to customers,” said Irons.

This class is funded in part through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration.
