QuickBooks was once the great competitor to MYOB when computerised accounting software started to become popular years ago. Back then, MYOB beat QuickBooks (distributed on CD’s in retail boxes by Reckon) to become the most popular accounting software in Australia. However, in this era of cloud-based software & services, the tables have turned, and small business people will find there are many more options available to them apart from just MYOB.
Just like our MYOB training courses (and Xero courses), our online QuickBooks Course will take you through several different scenarios; we adapt the same accounting scenarios we use in our proven and popular MYOB and Xero courses to our new QuickBooks Online Daily Transactions Course.
Intuit QuickBooks Course Online Daily Transactions Training Course (Code:522)
This course is ideal for any organisation or business, small or large, which sells products. It is also ideal for people selling services to do with these same products. This might include tradespeople (electricians, mechanics, plumbers, carpenters, painters, bakers and chefs, hairdressers, occupational therapists — the list goes on). QuickBooks is often preferred by bookkeepers and accountants employed to work with numerous small businesses.
In terms of our Online Daily Transaction Course, you will start the process by performing a simple purchase and payment for office cleaning services. From there you’ll delve into purchases of inventory items. Before purchasing inventory items, you will need to create them and enter the information that will later be used, not only buy them wholesale, but also to sell them to your customers.
Course Duration: 12 hours

Intuit QuickBooks Online Bank Reconciliation Training Course (Code: 523)
Bank feeds enable business owners to speed up the process of reconciling their bank statement/s to their accounting software. QuickBooks was one of the first companies to provide this fantastic service. This course goes through typical end-of-month tasks, transactions and reconciliations. It shows you how to correct transaction entries.
Explore a bank statement and enter data for that period as well as the direct debit transactions. Explore ad hoc payments for director wages, capital purchase of a vehicle and depreciation of that vehicle, plus alternatives like leasing or second hand car purchase under $20,000. You’ll perform a bank reconciliation that doesn’t balance and then go through the entries to sort out the issues and mis-typing that happens in most businesses.

QuickBooks Online Project Tracking and Reporting Training Course (Code: 527)
Quoting the right price for projects which involve multiple locations, many staff members and contractors and cost of materials can be tricky and blow out of control. If you are a tradie or builder or even an IT support and implementation team that combines products and services to provide solutions to your clients for a fixed quote then project tracking is very important.
In our real world case study we demonstrate how a $600 backyard shed can cost close to $6,000 once you consider all of your costs and expenses.
A typical backyard garden shed may look simple enough to build, according to websites from the shed manufacturers and hardware retailers like Bunnings. However, they’re a little complex for the average homeowner. We’ll demonstrate the steps and typical scenarios that tradespeople go through. We will keep track of the income and costs using Project/Job Tracking and Projects in our cloud accounting courses.
The following steps will be involved in the backyard shed erection:

- Measure size and slope of land
- Estimate how deep the land needs to be dug
- Work out how much reinforcement is needed
- How many bags of cement are needed?
- What type of cement mixer?
- Tools needed to complete the project
- Time for completion
- How many tradespeople are needed and when are they available?
- Whether the shed is onsite or does it need to be collected and delivered?
- Is there power to the site?
- What is the weather going to be like?
- Many tradespeople will have many of the items required as stock items. In our scenario we assume that the builder has 10 bags of cement.
