QuickBooks Setup

Although QuickBooks is designed for the layman to understand, the initial setup and installation must be done correctly in order for the information to be accurate.

All information necessary to setup manual accounting records is also necessary to setup and install QuickBooks on your desktop. This task is even more complicated when you switch from manual accounting operations to QuickBooks in the middle of the year.

Which accounting method will you use? What chart of accounts do you need for your business? How do you handle beginning balances?

Our QuickBooks Pro Advisor can answer these questions, complete the initial Setup and Installation, and provide training to you or your accounting employees.

 Here's a sample list of the services we can provide during your QuickBooks Setup:

  • Evaluate your software and accounting needs to determine the version of QuickBooks that would best suit your business needs.
  • Install software, set up chart of accounts, and additional modules as needed (payroll, accounts receivable, inventory, accounts payable, etc.).
  • Load your chart of account and beginning account balances.
  • Verify your bank balances, outstanding checks and deposits-in-transit as of your starting date.
  • Print a trial balance as of your starting date and reconcile it to the trial balance from your old system
  • Enter your transactions since your starting date into QuickBooks.
  • Train client or client staff in use of software to meet accounting, management, and tax needs.
Ongoing Services:
  • Follow up training as needed.
  • Monthly, quarterly or annual review of client QuickBooks data to assist in management reporting and tax preparation.
