It is essential that before installing QuickBooks for any small business that it be set up appropriately for your business informational needs.  Most small businesses fail to do so, resulting in reports less effective for management decision making.  For instance, to appropriately reflect job costing, classes and items are ordinarily used.  Consequently, the first step in any process of a QuickBooks set up is an analysis of the reports needed by management.  Too often QuickBooks is installed with little, if any, thought on the informational needs of the users.  The result is too often a meaningless mess.

William Brighenti is not only a Certified QuickBooks ProAdvisor at Accountants CPA Hartford, LLC, but also a Certified Public Accountant.  William will offer to conduct an examination of your reports prior to any QuickBooks set up and modification, including a review of company tax returns, financial statements, job costing, payroll, fixed assets, outstanding loans, etc.  Only after reviewing all of the uses of QuickBooks is one capable of determining the appropriate installation and modification of a company's QuickBooks file.

The second step in ensuring the most effective and efficient use of QuickBooks is the ascertainment of the capabilities of its users at the company.  Since cash is king at any small business, it is imperative that bank reconciliations be processed via QuickBooks.  All too often, users at small businesses fail to do bank reconciliations in QuickBooks. 
Once one learns how to process bank reconciliations in QuickBooks, then receivables and payables can be cleaned up in the QuickBooks file.  We at Accountants CPA Hartford, LLC, will be happy to walk anyone through the process.

QuickBooks can be a powerful tool for any small business; however, it does require some thought prior to set up as well as some knowledge of basic bookkeeping in its proper use.  If set up and used appropriately, a small company can save thousands of dollars in year-end clean up by outside accountants.  Even more importantly, management can produce accurate monthly operating and cash flow reports.

Two important features hardly used effectively by QuickBooks users are fixed asset and loan manager.  With the use of fixed asset manager, one is able to determine depreciation expense, which can be a very important consideration is anticipating taxable income.  With loan manager, one can automatically pay loan installments and allocate the correct amounts to interest expense and principal reductions without the use of amortization schedules.

Call Accountants CPA Hartford, LLC for an analysis of your QuickBooks set up. William Brighenti will recommend appropriate modifications to enhance the efficaciousness of its reporting and use.  Private consultations and training are always available and very affordable.  In addition,
appropriate discounts are given for larger class sizes and longer class and training sessions.  Contact Accountants CPA Hartford: William Brighenti, CPA, Certified QuickBooks ProAdvisor now for more information:  (860) 828-3269.
