“Hassle Free” QuickBooks Setup

Let Us Setup QuickBooks for You… Avoid Days (or Potential Weeks) of Hassle and Aggravation!

It’s true, QuickBooks is flexible and easy to use, and although you and/or your staff are probably entirely capable of installing and setting up your QuickBooks software, we have found that most clients prefer the benefits of having a professional get the system up and running for them.

Our experience allows us to review your current bookkeeping system and your future bookkeeping needs, and then setup your QuickBooks program so that it works for you, flawlessly, right from the start. You don’t have to waste your time, or the valuable time of an employee, taking the time to figure out what methods of accounting you use, what chart of accounts you will need for your business and how to properly enter beginning balances. As well, our expert provides training on the QuickBooks software, increasing efficiency and knowledge of your new accounting method immediately rather than prolonging the inevitable learning curve as your bookkeepers figure out the ins and outs of the system.

When hiring us to setup QuickBooks for your business, you will not lose any time to installation and setup of the system. We will…

  • review your current accounting system and determine your needs, including the setup and design of your QuickBooks accounting management software.
  • determine your best start date and load balances as of that start date, including outstanding accounts receivable and outstanding accounts payable as of that start date.
  • prepare the list of services, inventory items, non-inventory items, any additional charges, and sales tax that you will bill to your customers.
  • enter any transactions as of your start date into the QuickBooks system.
  • train you or a member of your staff to use QuickBooks to meet all of your accounting and financial management needs.
  • follow up training to make sure the system is working seamlessly for your business.
  • monthly, quarterly, or annual review of data to make sure you are on track for tax preparation and the necessary management reports to build your business.

What our Clients are saying

September 28, 2018

We are a tiny travel agency that has been in business since 2004. While looking back to the different CPA firms that we have employed for our corporate and personal tax filings, we had never had a moment where our extended filing date was a problem until last year. Enter Michael Essick, who was recommended to us via his posting at a long-time client’s church community board.
To say it was a hornet’s nest of IRS threatening form letters, and being dumped by the prior CPA firm, was just the start. Mike welcomed us in and gave us time to plead our case, then giving tentative and real solutions that worked for us. Even after a negative reply from the IRS, mike is still hopeful and still seeking a better outcome. Bravo for the “Go Get Them” attitude!
As of today, we have followed Mike’s advice and not only have we caught up on the monies that were requested by the IRS for 2018, he also completed the 2017 corporate and personal taxes filing for us, which produced a surprising refund. Yay for us, and yay for Mike, for turning around our small business with big tax problems and helping us get back into the black in less than six months.
Our appreciation for his skill and efforts will continue beyond the life of our agency. These last six months have proven that mike is a trusted and honest business person who can untangle financial business issues, as he did for us and as he will for people that we will be sending his way.

Thank you, a million times.
