The new material will provide learners with the most current look and format of QuickBooks Online.
We have listened to, and are grateful for, many reviews over the year and will implement many changes as we update the course including shortening unnecessary introductions, adding more ways for learners to work in a hands-on approach, and adding new content related to specific industries and circumstances including a cash basis business.
This is a comprehensive QuickBooks Online course.
If you are a student at an accredited academic institution, you may be eligible for a free trial version of QuickBooks from Intuit, which is a great tool allowing you to maximize the use of this course. We may also utilize a free 30 trial often offered by Intuit, the owner of QuickBooks
This course will start at the basics, assuming you know nothing about the software or accounting.
We will start by comparing the different versions of QuickBooks. We will then go through the purchasing process, the downloading process, and the installation process.
The first half of the course will be dedicated to navigating the software, getting a feel for the major components of the software, and the primary accounting cycles such as the customer section or revenue cycle, the vendor section or payments cycle, and the employee section or payroll cycle.
Once we learn the primary sections or accounting cycles we will analyze the forms and transactions within each section, considering the impact each has on the financial statements.
The second half of the course will be in the format of a comprehensive problem, working through two months of data impute.
We will enter every standard type of transaction as we work through the comprehensive problem. The comprehensive problem format will provide context to the data entry process, so we understand how the data impute fits into the accounting workflow.
A comprehensive problem also allows us to do more than simple data entry, data entry generally being the easiest part of the accounting process. We will be able to see how to set up the system to make the data entry as easy as possible.
We will also be able to see the impact on the financial statements of every transaction we make and be able to check our work after each transaction.
