QuickBooks: Hands-on Workshop
Scheduled by TAMIU SBDC Nov. 9

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 2007” on Friday, Nov. 9, 2007, from 9 am. – 3 p.m. at Dr. Billy F. Cowart Hall , room 117. 

A $50 fee will include workbook and lunch. Limited seating is available. Interested persons should call the TAMIU-SBDC office at 956.326.2827 or 956.326.2550, or e-mail sbdc@tamiu.edu

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 Nov. 9 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

For more information, call TAMIU SBDC at 956. 326.2827, or e-mail sbdc@tamiu.edu 

Office hours are from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday-Friday.

Journalists who need additional information or help with media requests and interviews should contact the Office of Public Relations, Marketing and Information Services at prmis@tamiu.edu
