Scheduled by TAMIU-SBDC Oct. 3
The Texas A&M International University Small Business Development Center (TAMIU-SBDC) will sponsor a hands-on workshop on “How to Manage Your Business Finances with QuickBooks Pro” on Friday, Oct. 3, 2008, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in Pellegrino Hall, room 211.
A $50 fee will include workbook and lunch. Limited seating is available. Interested persons should call the TAMIU-SBDC office at 326.2827, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Richard Pérez, SBDC director, explained that the days of manually posting transactions to journals and ledgers are gone. Computer technology has ushered accounting into a new generation. The benefit for business owners is the opportunity to participate at a higher level in the financial administration of their businesses.
Invoicing, sales receipts check writing, and the subsequent flow of information into a cash-in bank register are among the important basic features found in most accounting software applications. However, these processes represent only a small portion of the accounting procedures that can now be done electronically through software like QuickBooks.
The Oct. 3 workshop will include the following:
- What is financial management?
- Easy step interview tips (new company set-up)
- Chart of accounts
- How to add items, customers and vendors
- Managing sales and expenses
- Budgeting and reports
- Resources and tips.
To register, call the TAMIU SBDC office at 326.2827, or register online at sbdc.tamiu.edu
Office hours are from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday-Friday.
