Although QuickBooks is easy to understand, the initial setup and installation must be done correctly. All information necessary to set up manual accounting records is necessary to set up QuickBooks on your desktop. This task is even more complicated if your Elgin business switches from manual accounting operations to QuickBooks in the middle of the fiscal year.
Which accounting method will you use? What chart of accounts do you need for your Elgin business? How do you handle beginning balances? Our QuickBooks accounting staff can easily answer all of these questions and complete the initial Setup and Installation in a timely manner. In addition, we can train your accounting employees or bookkeeper on the accounting software to enhance their performance.
