I also use Quickbooks and love it! I have grown to love it even more in
recent months since I had a person who understands accounting and
Quickbooks show me how to handle some tricks that I couldn't figure out
because I'm not an accountant. Now, I zing with Quickbooks and can even
balance both checking and savings! Before, since I didn't understand how to
keep track of every penny, I just balance both accounts in Microsoft Money
and used Quickbooks to track invoices, etc. But, when I started selling
software and now have an inventory, I needed Quickbooks more. So, this
person convinced me to stop using Money for the business end and showed me
how to keep track of everything! I am proud to say that I'm ready for the
tax man this year because my accounting is up to date! Now if I could just
get my filing up to date in Clooz!
