Get the MOST out of QuickBooks
The most important QuickBooks tip we can give you is to make sure your software has been setup correctly. The vast majority of mistakes encountered in the program can be traced to errors made in the initial setup. If you have doubts about the accuracy of your current setup, it is in your best interest to have our Kauai QuickBooks ProAdvisor analyze your current setup and make any necessary changes. You deserve the confidence that your financial data is accurate and that you are not “guessing” on important business decisions. Taking this one step will help you avoid a lot of costly troubleshooting in the future.

You NEED QuickBooks training to effectively use the software. The program is fairly user friendly if the software has been properly setup and you have been trained on how to correctly use all pertinent components.
