With tax season right around the corner, it’s time to take a close look at your company’s bookkeeping system. QuickBooks is an ideal business accounting solution for small to mid-sized business owners, but even though it is very easy to use, most people still make some setup and data entry errors over the course of the year.
To make tax time go more smoothly, it helps to take a little time each month to check and update records and sort and file any paperwork that you’ll need for taxes. Incorporating good systems and using them will keep you more organized and in control of your time all year long, but it will come in especially handy during tax time.
No matter how conscientious and organized you are, errors and omissions can happen to anyone. So as mid-April approaches, consider a QuickBooks tune-up. In just four hours, a QuickBooks Professional Advisor can help you clean up and organize your bookkeeping system, ensuring that everything is in order. Topics include reviewing transactions, cleaning up stray entries, customizing reports, and balancing the general ledger to subsidiary records. The advisor can also provide extra training that is personalized to meet your specific needs.
One nice thing about QuickBooks is the ease with which you can generate reports containing helpful information that will keep you informed about the health and direction of your company. When your records are accurate and up to date, not only will you be squared away with the IRS, you’ll also be able to make better business decisions.
