“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 Irons.

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 like sales/invoicing, customer receipts, paying bills, generating standard reports, and bank reconciliation.

“We’ll also cover the reports, charts, and graphs QuickBooks can create for you. We will review how you can customize reports for specific business and managers. Before the day is over, attendees will learn how to customize invoices and statements to include your logo and messages to customers,” said Irons.

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

University of Missouri Extension and Table Rock Lake Area Chamber of Commerce are jointly offering this workshop.
