As a small business owner, getting your finances in order is a big part of your success. Being able to recognize areas of improvement, assess profits and losses, and implement good billing systems are just some of the things you will have to do in order to build or maintain a successful business. This is where QuickBooks can help you out and make your life so much easier. QuickBooks is a specialized piece of software that will help you as a business owner to manage your money, implement expense billing and sales invoicing systems, and generate various financial reports that you can use to forecast your company’s financial health. QuickBooks is truly amazing and is incredibly useful, especially for small business owners (who are likely wearing many hats as they build their company). While you are getting started with this great software, we would like to offer you some tips on how to avoid the costly and horrible mistakes that many beginners usually make in QuickBooks.

Reconcile Your Accounts

It is very important to reconcile your account on a regular basis. This ensures that you always have an accurate view of the financial health of your business.

Don’t Overlook the Details

Make sure you are putting in the correct information for your company and your customers or clients. Such a small step can have huge consequences down the road.

Backup Regularly

Backing up your QuickBooks data is a step that will save you immense frustration and stress in the event of a system failure. Schedule regular, automatic backups and you will keep your data (and your sanity, too).

Printing Checks

QuickBooks also offers the ability to print checks, allowing you to seamlessly pay vendors and contractors, as well as business expenses, by simply selecting your bank account and hitting “Write Checks”.

Pay Business Bills

QuickBooks offers the ability to set up your business expense billing so you can pay either online or through check. Using this feature will keep your accounts payable under control.
