BRIEF COURSE INFORMATION
Contractors contained many uncommon bookkeeping needs, so we’ve planned this seminar from the ground up specifically for the construction industry. In this six-week course, you’ll study how to use the Premier Contractor Edition of QuickBooks 2015 to run your business more efficiently. Lessons are clearly illustrated and include easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions to provide you hands-on practice with the features that you’re sure to use every day. You’ll discover how to create custom, professional-looking contract estimates and track time and materials, and you’ll study the different techniques you can use to bill your clients, including how to use the QuickBooks process invoicing and job-costing features. You’ll find out how to deal with tricky situations, like change orders and retainage requirements, and you’ll study how to properly set up accounts, items, customers, and jobs. All along the way, you’ll study how to avoid many of the big and often costly mistakes contractors commonly make with QuickBooks. Finally, you’ll study how specific transactions impact all your accounts, and even some techniques to protect your business from fraud, prepare for tax time, and generate useful and active reports.
