Learn how to reconcile your bank accounts so that your QuickBooks data matches your bank statements.
Just because your balance matches the bank, it doesn’t mean all the transactions were put in the right places. Learn how to spot data entry errors and make corrections.
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.
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.
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.
Closing the books makes sure that your file matches what you submitted to the IRS. It prevents anyone from accidentally changing historical data.
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.
Answer these questions to confirm that you've wrapped up your business for Year-End, and are ready to use it to file your taxes.
