This handbook is written with the end-user in mind. No previous accounting or Quickbooks knowledge is assumed. However, If you are already familiar with the desktop versions – QuickBooks Pro, QuickBooks Premier or QuickBooks Premier Accountant, then making the transition to online shouldn’t be too painful. Be aware that some features are hidden, some aren’t quite where you’d expect them to be and some don’t exist at all (yet).
Online systems are more fluid than desktop releases, and changes can be made overnight and ongoing without the need for anyone to ‘upgrade’ or ‘get the latest version’. By the time you get to the end of the handbook, you’ll have a very good idea of all that QuickBooks Online can do, and will be familiar with the most common tasks that users perform. It’s written with the non-financial manager in mind. But if you are a bookkeeper or an accountant – then this should still provide useful material for you.
If you are the owner-manager, whether it’s an SME (small-medium sized enterprise) or you are currently a solopreneur – if you have any intention to use QuickBooks Online at all… take this book, read it from cover to cover & get a free trial set up – visit our site for our latest special offers on the software: http://www.booglesltd.com/QuickBooks_Online.html, and work with me through the modules, so that you ‘use the system’ and ‘read the manual’ at the same time. QuickBooks is a tool you can use to make your bookkeeping task much easier. It is well named in that it certainly DOES make doing the books quick! So whether you need to invoice your customers, send them out a reminder statement, keep track of and pay your supplier bills, track your stock or just run a few reports to see how well your business is doing… QuickBooks has the solution for you.
We’ve just moved onto the new system – Quickbooks online, and its quite different from the Quickbooks desktop version. This handbook has been really useful and helped me to save a lot of time because I can just flick to the bit that I need to know and get on with it.
There's a lot of content in this book. It covers a whole breadth of things like multi currency, setting up stock, customising forms and tracking time - not all of it might be needed by every person using quickbooks online, but it there - so for this reason its fairly thorough. The small business owner would definately find it easy to follow.
