QuickBooks can save you hours of time in keeping your books and keeping track of your finances. But setting up the new 2015 QuickBooks can be complex and time-consuming. According to a recent national survey, more construction contractors use QuickBooks than all other accounting program combined. And for good reason. QuickBooks excels at all the routine paperwork in a construction office: writing checks, keeping track of your bank statements for the month, year or by job, writing payroll checks, paying suppliers and subcontractors, tracking job costs, comparing estimated and actual costs for each job, and much more.
But there's a lot to learn in QuickBooks. And converting to a new accounting system can be a complex and confusing task, even if you have a strong background in accounting and plenty of time to install the new system. That's why this book was written -- because most construction pros aren't accounting experts and have more important work to do at the jobsite.
Contractor's Guide to QuickBooks 2015 will walk you step-by-step through QuickBooks' detailed setup procedure and then explain item-by-item how you should be using QuickBooks every day. In days, rather than weeks, you'll create a first-rate accounting system that's an asset to your company.
