Keeping books

What kind of software do you use to keep track of your buisness records?

Barbeque. Sit back, relax, and let the smoke work it's magic!

You can't drink all day, unless you start in the morning.

I use Quickbooks Pro Bill. It's a very easy to use program and can keep track of anything you might need or do in a small business.

Chalk another for Quickbooks....nice and easy and all you have to do is make an 'accountants' copy and shoot the disk to the accountant for the year end taxes.....

I'm in for Quickbooks. I'm basically an idiot and even I figured most of it out!

My business also uses Quickbooks. It'll do anything you need.

Contact Quikbooks and they will let you know! I'm thinking like Big Mike and it shouldn't be a problem. When I switched from an old version of Quickbooks to Quickbooks Prosomething, it did all the switching for me withoput any input from me and ran smooth with no problems.
