Learn QuickBooks

When: October 2, 2014
Where: The Entrepreneur Space, 36-46 37th Street, Long Island City, NY 11101
Time: 6:00pm to 8:00pm
Cost: Free

This 3-day class (10/2, 10/9, and 10/16) QuickBooks course aims to provide the technical know-how for people looking to learn how to use this program effectively. 

Please note this class is for the Windows version of QuickBooks. While it has the same functions as the Mac version, the interface is very different.

In this class you will:

Work hands-on with QuickBooks.

Please note that this class fills up extremely quickly. If it is full, please add your name to the waiting list.

Why take a class on Quickbooks?

- Because your receipts fade and storage of your data is difficult without it. (You can link transactions and make things much easier if you are ever audited). 
- Quickbooks helps you create analytic reports you can use to make better business decisions and keep your bookkeeping tight.
- Because MS Excel is not made for bookkeeping! You lose out on power information created by QB reports.
- Save money come tax time. Save between 5 hours/month of manual entry and over $4,200 a year come tax time by using QuickBooks.*
- Manual entries and bank statement importation can create lost transactions and no reconciliation. 

*Based on normal retainer fee paid for bookkeeping.

This class is part of the NYC Small Business Tech Coalition, funded by the NYCSBS and Citi Community Development.

Now is the time to clear those impediments and take a leap forward to embrace success.
