QuickBooks Overview

To achieve and sustain success, every small business must maintain a thorough understanding and ongoing awareness of its financial resources and conditions by keeping up-to-date track of income and expenses through effective accounting. To simplify those chores and challenges, QuickBooks accounting software “remains the top small-business accounting program” — and “its guidance for novices is top-notch” — according to, an online center for technology information and reviews.

Whatever your business does, whatever product it provides or service it performs, QuickBooks lets you handle all of your basic accounting tasks with ease:

  • create  and maintain databases of customer and vendor histories and information
  • create invoices and statements for billing
  • streamline ordering and shipping
  • record payments from customers
  • write checks for accounts payable
  • reckon and maintain inventory status
  • calculate job costs
  • prepare estimates
  • reconcile checkbooks
  • generate reports for tax purposes
