QuickBooks is a huge asset to any company, but most companies do not know how to use this accounting program properly. If you have QuickBooks but aren’t using it as much as you think you should be, we have a few helpful tips for you.

Setting Up Your Company Preferences

The first thing that you should do is set up your small business accounting preferences through QuickBooks. This program makes it possible to set and change company preferences according to what you need. These little adjustment make it simpler to perform tasks like data structuring, producing reports, and organizing data. Not setting up preferences means that the program will produce generic results that may not be useful to your needs.

Use the Chart of Accounts Feature

You can use this feature to group costs according to various business features. Again, since your company is unique, the features that you will be setting up apply solely to your business. Chart of Accounts is a simple way to see where your company is spending money and on what. This is a resource that all companies can use.

Be Specific When it Comes to Vendor Names

With QuickBooks accounting, there’s no need to simply use the generic program setup. You can easily customize this program to suit your company. One of the things that will help with organization is to set up specific vendor names. Assign names to each of the categories that pertain to your vendors, so that you can pull up specific company details whenever you need them.

Become Familiar With the Program

QuickBooks was designed to be a simple enough program to use, but you have to take the time to learn to use it. Spend some time going through the setup of the program, learning the navigation techniques and quick buttons, and make your life simpler when using the program by knowing how it functions. It might take some time to get used to using QuickBooks, but you’ll quickly discover that this program is, in fact, user-friendly.
