Working With Company Files

One of the more challenging aspects of QuickBooks is learning how to manage company files. In this lesson, we'll explore some great features that will allow you to easily work with not just one, but multiple company files. You'll even learn how to export and import list information from other files into a brand new file. Once you have a new file created, you'll learn how to access the file from a remote location and how to move your file from one computer to another.

Securing Your Company Files

Taking steps to secure your company files is one of the easiest and most effective ways to make sure your file doesn't get mishandled or corrupted in some way. In today's lesson, you'll learn how to set a closing date in your file so that no one can enter a transaction in the wrong period. You'll also learn how to create new users and limit these users to only the areas in which they work. Finally, you'll learn how to use the Condense and Verify features in QuickBooks to streamline your file and check to see if it's corrupted.

 List Items and Inventory

Lists form the backbone of QuickBooks. In this lesson, you'll explore how to add and edit multiple list items. You'll also learn how to create class items to further categorize transactions. Finally, you'll discover how to enter inventory part items and how to combine these items to build inventory assemblies.

Ordering and Selling Inventory

Tracking inventory in QuickBooks is a multistep process. In this lesson, you'll learn how to enter and use Sales Orders to keep track of customer orders. We'll go over how to create Purchase Orders that you can either print or email to your vendors to order more inventory when you need it. And to help you keep track of it all, we'll discuss how to use the Inventory Center in QuickBooks to quickly view inventory transactions, edit items, and produce some amazing reports.

Vendor Discounts and Credits and Adjusting Inventory

If you work with the same vendors over and over again, you may receive discounts and earn credits. In this lesson, you'll learn how to record these discounts. You'll also learn how to enter and manage vendor credits when they arise. Finally, you'll gain the skills you need to adjust your inventory balance should it get out of sync with your actual in-stock inventory.

Tracking Price Levels and Customer Discounts

Not all customers are created equal. Many businesses charge different prices to different customers for a number of reasons. In this lesson, you'll learn how to create price levels either on a fixed percentage or on an item basis that you can assign to a particular customer. This way, whenever you create an invoice for a customer, QuickBooks automatically remembers the price that you want to charge. You'll also learn how to create discount items that you can use separately to track the total amount of discounts that you grant to your customers, and even how to use discounts to encourage your customers to pay an invoice early.

Tracking Vehicle Mileage

If you ever have to travel by car to a job site or project, you may want to track the vehicle mileage so that you can later deduct it on your tax return. In this lesson, you'll learn how to enter this mileage and the rate the IRS allows for a deduction. You'll also learn how to create some great reports that you can use as support for your tax return. Last, you'll find out how to bill a customer for the mileage you've incurred, even if it's at a different rate than the IRS allows.

Working With Customer Balances

Sometimes you may need to bill a customer without the need to create a full-blown invoice or sales receipt. In this lesson, you'll learn how to create a statement charge directly to a customer's account. You'll also learn how to easily change the price of multiple sales items using QuickBooks' Change Item Prices feature. Last, if a customer is late to pay on an invoice, you'll learn how to assess a finance charge and how to write the balance off the books if the customer ultimately fails to pay.

Batch Invoicing and Creating Letters

In this lesson, you'll learn how to utilize QuickBooks' batch invoicing features to create multiple invoices at the same time to send to any of your customers on your customer list. You'll also learn how to set up billing groups that you can use over and over again to send recurring invoices. In the second half of the lesson, you'll explore how to modify a letter template and then create a form letter that you can send to your customers or vendors. You'll even learn how to create and print envelopes and labels based on your customer or vendor information.

Petty Cash and Gift Cards

Most small businesses carry a small amount of cash on hand to pay for odds and ends. Over time, these small amounts can have a significant impact on your accounting records. In this lesson, you'll learn how you can use QuickBooks to track petty cash amounts. In addition, you're going to learn how to enter the sales of gift cards and certificates. You'll also become proficient in making entries to record when a customer redeems one of these gift cards or certificates.

Owner Transactions and Journal Entries

In this lesson, you'll learn how to record an owner's infusion of capital into the business. You'll also learn how to record transactions where the owner withdraws money from the company's bank account. In addition, you'll examine when and how to use the Make General Journal Entries window to record various entries that don't involve the business bank account, including the times when the owner might use personal funds to pay for a business expense.

Loans and Budgets

In this lesson, you'll learn how to enter a long-term loan in which you use the proceeds of the loan to purchase an asset in your business. You'll then learn how to track this loan using the Loan Manager feature to split apart the principal and interest portions of the loan payment. We'll also dive into the planning and budgeting features built into QuickBooks. By the end of this lesson, you'll see just how easy it is to enter budget data so that you can later evaluate your company's performance using some of QuickBooks' reporting features.
