How to Fulfill Your Certified Payroll Requirements – Webinar Recording

When it comes to certified payroll and prevailing wage there are a lot of grey areas.

QuickBooks Job Costing from A-Z Webinar

Job Costing in QuickBooks can be one of the most agonizing tasks that you face on a daily basis.  Just because it’s called “QuickBooks” and it’s made by “Intuit” doesn’t mean that setup is QUICK or INTUITIVE to get good job costing reports!  The correct setup is KEY! I'm not one of those folks who thinks every contractor needs the EXACT same Chart of Accounts or Items list - I believe each construction company has unique and specific needs.  I can show you how to properly set up and use QuickBooks to ensure proper job costing so you can generate good reports out of QuickBooks every time. Join us on Wednesday March 26, 2014 from 1-2:30 p.m. EST.

FAQ – Upgrading QuickBooks eBook

This time of year there's always a lot of hype and pressure to upgrade to the newest version of QuickBooks.  Inuit put "upgrade" ads in your current version of the software, they send you emails with "special offers", perhaps your QuickBooks professional advisor or your CPA is making the recommendation that you upgrade. Sometimes this is just hype and a way for these folks to make some extra money - because they earn a commission on your purchase.  Other times their urging is legitimate, perhaps the version of QuickBooks that you are using is scheduled to "sunset or retire" by May of 2013 and you'll use many of the services that you rely on - like payroll and on-line banking for example. Download our 19-page FAQ-Upgrading QuickBooks eBook today. Price:  Free
