QuickBooks Download Tools for Credit Cards and Banking Downloads

Happy Friday!

I find this information extremely useful so I though I would re-post it:)

Have you ever gotten so frustrated with the download methods available to you with using QuickBooks?

Quicken products have been programmed  for very simple and easy use with downloading credit cards and bank accounts for some time now.

However QuickBooks downloads have been a bit of a challenge for most people. When you download from most banks and credit cards in IIF format, once you are back in QuickBooks, you have to click on each item one at a time to enter it into your QuickBooks registers which wastes precious time.  With that method there is no button to click “accept all” for them to import all at once…

NOT ANYMORE!!

I have found the most wonderful tools that have saved me countless hours of time re-entering client’s data into Quickbooks. A company called Big Red Consulting, has a multitude of tools for downloading and copying transactions for QuickBooks.

My most favorite is the QIF to IIF convertor. You can download data, seamlessly into QuickBooks this way and it just flows right into your QuickBooks banking or credit card registers so smoothly,  like butter!!

Another great tool is the Transaction Copier, which can copy entire general ledgers or invoices, etc from one QuickBooks for to another.

Each tool runs about $59, and is a fabulous investment that will pay for itself many times over!

Accounting Tips 101

Whatever the industry your business falls under, its sole purpose is to earn maximum profits. The question is what are those actions you can implement to earn profits and have highest returns? Simple, either by increasing revenue or by reducing costs! Increasing revenue demands a lot of brilliant strategies put into practice, whereas cutting costs will require a much little effort on your part. Here are some simple tips that can be extremely useful in cutting costs.

Cost cutting approach for small or newly setup businesses: Being a small business, your goal should be to stretch your dollars as much as you can, so you could embrace all the activities within those financial limits. You have to stop your money from flowing outside the door as much as possible. The following actions may to help you avoid overspending:

� Spend your money only on items that you need most, avoid expenses on unnecessary items.

� You may have many expenses, but know when to spend and when to save.

� Always try to get things at the most economical rates. Bargain before settling on a certain price. Sometimes, getting things in bulk can be a good way of lowering costs.

� Prefer using fax and email to disburse important information, this will save you from costs of paper.

� Monitor the correct usage of office supplies, such as electricity, telephone, stationery etc. this may save you the extra buck too!

Outsourcing accounting tasks

Outsourced accounting services can be a great help for businesses. They are not only cost-effective but also makes businesses gain more accountability and transparency and better manage their overall labor resources. With the latest accounting software in use, accounting tasks can now be easily and safely outsourced by any company. It has been noted that the savings companies make and the costs they reduce through outsourcing are extremely amazing.

Increase accountant efficiency:

Another thing you can do to lower your accounting costs is by organizing and properly arranging all the data that needs to be handled by the accountant. Many companies pay accountants on hourly basis-so the less the fuss, the less will be the hours, and ultimately lesser will be the costs. You can manage the data on the computer in form of tables, spreadsheets, charts etc.

Hire professionals:

Many would suggest you to hire temporary bookkeepers and accountants because it will not cost you much. The fact on the other hand is totally opposite! It’s always better to let professionals handle your numbers. Firstly, it will avoid you from wrong calculations and secondly, it will save you from many legal penalties which in case of latter might cost you too expensive.
