the best candidate for your job opening is never effortless, but what could the cost be of hiring the wrong person?
Everyone knows that QuickBooks®, the #1 small business accounting software, is easy to use, right? Anyone can use
it---that's what they say and demonstrate on TV, right?
But what if the bookkeeper you've just hired for your business
doesn't understand how to use QuickBooks correctly for your business?
Here's what happened to one manufacturing
He hired a professional bookkeeper/QuickBooks expert in September. The bookkeeper/expert had used QuickBooks for just
one client, a day care center, and in a very limited way---as a checkbook. He entered checks, bills and credit card charges
for raw materials the same way as he did for the day care center---using the expense tab.
The manufacturer relied heavily on a consultant-created memorized report. The report showed the company was very profitable
so they hired more people. But the report was wrong. What was the problem? The bookkeeper entered raw materials as inventory and never expensed them when the finished goods were sold. He simply
didn't know how to manage inventory in QuickBooks. He had taken a class or two, used the program for seven years and honestly
had no idea how much he didn't know.
The manufacturer's CPA caught the mistake the following March, but the company nearly went out of business because of the
bookkeeper's misunderstanding of how to properly use QuickBooks for that business.
As the non-accountant's accounting software, QuickBooks®
has greatly simplified the bookkeeping process, but no accounting package, however user-friendly, can be
operated properly without sufficient understanding of its features and functionality as they apply to your business.
QuickBooks® can be the best package to manage the finances
of your business as well as a law firm, restaurant and municipal authority because it is easily customizable.
Below you can purchase a 75-question QuickBooks®
skill test written for an employment agency. They were having problems sending QuickBooks "experts" to jobs that
their "experts" were not able to do or did badly. Although QuickBooks® can be used just to keep a checkbook balance,
if set up to do so, it can be an extensive business dashboard. If, however, the software is misused, it could cost thousands
of dollars to clean up or start over.
