Course Description

The QuickBooks ecosystem of accounting tools remains the most widely-used set of accounting applications in use by small businesses, yet many of these organizations struggle because of inadequate internal controls. In this seminar, you will learn options for how you can improve internal controls in small businesses running QuickBooks Pro, Premier, Enterprise, or Online.

Through participating in this program, you will learn the importance of maintaining a strong system of internal controls in a small business environment, including businesses using QuickBooks accounting solutions. You will also learn about the four common types of internal controls and how to assess the relative condition of the internal control structure of a small business. With this background in place, the focus then shifts to discovering the opportunities to enhance controls in small businesses using QuickBooks.  In addition, you will learn about supplemental procedures for situations where effective controls cannot otherwise be established. In sum, while many believe that QuickBooks-based organizations are destined for weak internal control structures, by participating in this program you will learn how QuickBooks-based businesses can benefit from a strong system of internal controls.
