  • You will need access to Quickbooks Desktop (preferably version 2006 - although recent versions - 2008, 2010, 2012, 2014 are very similar)
  • You'll need access to Quickbooks in order to complete the assignment

Quickbooks Computerised Accounts course is about how to use Quickbooks based on the most popular functions which you as a Quickbooks operator needs to know how to use, in order to be proficient in using the software.

The learning is structured in a practical way. You are given a practical scenario assignment. There are various tasks to complete. You are given the task to do and have a go at, and then the video answer is available. It is suggested that you:

  1. Read the task
  2. Watch the video
  3. Have a go at it yourself on your own system
  4. Rewatch the video (if necessary) - to reinforce the learning

You’ll learn how to set up a quickbooks system from scratch, how to enter opening balances, post customer invoices and credit notes, post supplier bills and credit notes, pay suppliers, petty cash, prepare a VAT return, reconcile the bank, post journals, run reports amongst over things.

This is a useful course if:

  • You are thinking of working with the software,
  • You are going for jobs which have a requirement for you to be able to use this software
  • You want to put this skill on your CV, or
  • You are a bookkeeper or accountant and will be using this for clients or even
  • You run your own business and want to know how to use Quickbooks for yourself.

You will need to have access to a copy of quickbooks 2006 edition – the version which this teaching is based on. Versions 2003, 2008, 2010, 2012, 2014 aren’t too dis-similar from the edition which this is based on. If you have a newer version, and get stuck, the instructor is usually online to answer student queries for 2 hours each day.

The course materials includes the handout of the assignment task.

Successful completion of the course is the equivalent to being at the level of having a level 2 certificate in computerised accounts.

The course will take about 3-4 hours to complete.
