QuickBooks has inventory reports you can print out to see what you’re supposed to have in stock. Take a physical count and compare the quantities. Then, make an inventory adjustment.

Take Inventory

If you have large purchases in your fixed assets, you want to spread out the cost of the items over a few years so that your books don’t have big expense hits one year and nothing the next.

Depreciate Your Assets

QuickBooks has somewhere between 20 and 100 reports available to you, depending on what version you’re using. Plus, they’re all customizable! Learn how to use reports to see how your business is doing.

Analyze Your Business

Closing the books makes sure that your file matches what you submitted to the IRS. It prevents anyone from accidentally changing historical data.

Close the Books

Even if you have a solid backup strategy, you'll learn how to make a specific backup of your file as a year-end final copy.
