As a QuickBooksTM Pro Advisor here in Newmarket, Ontario, one of the key question clients ask me when looking for QuickBooksTM training is; “How long do you think it will take for me to learn what I need to know to do the bookkeeping for my company?” The answer is not straight forward if I don’t have all the facts i.e.; Have you done bookkeeping before? Have you used accounting software before? If yes to either of those questions then;
- How long ago,
- What type of software and
- What type of business was it?
If you did bookkeeping on the old one-write system, I can’t assume you’ll grasp the concept of computerized bookkeeping. Once I have a better understanding of your experience I can suggest the amount of time I think it will take. The following is the guideline I use when doing QuickBooksTM training.
