Recommended Software for Bookkeeping
I recommend Quickbooks from Intuit for your bookkeeping needs. Although Quickbooks may be a little more expensive that other comparable programs, Quickbooks has become the standard for small business accounting and it’s the favorite accounting software for CPAs. It is also easy to find online support for Quickbooks as well as frequently asked questions on the Quickbooks website.
There are other reasons you should choose Quickbooks. It is very easy for the non accountant to use this software. Many simple bookkeeping tasks are handled automatically such as invoicing and paying bills are handled automatically.
Reports are easy to generate. Quickbooks offers a wide selection of reports to track your business activity and also allows you to customize reports by downloading them to other popular software programs such as Microsoft Excel, Word, Outlook and ACT.
Quickbooks is also customizable to a wide range of small businesses. In fact, Quickbooks offers accounting packages for contractors, retailers, health care professionals, and non-profit organizations.
You can also get paid faster with Quickbooks online payments. You can e-mail an invoice or statements and with Quickbooks online billing, your customer can easily pay you with a credit card or bank account transfer.
Quickbooks also allows you to easily accept credit cards with Quickbooks Merchant Account Service. This credit card is integrated into the program and allows your customers to pay you using VISA, Mastercard or American Express.
Quickbooks also allows you to pay your bills and bank online. You can setup your checking account to integrate with the program to allow the writing of checks directly from Quickbooks directly to your vendor without having to use the mail. In addition, online banking will allow you to download your monthly statement from your participating bank directly into the program making bank reconciliation much easier.
Quickbooks also offers a hosting solution allowing you the flexibility to access the software from any location at different times. It also allows you to give access to your accountant, business partners and employees to have access to your most current version of your records.
