QBO: The Chart of Accounts Class


Course
Alicia Pollock

Learn to set up your QuickBooks Chart of Accounts according to accounting principles: bookkeeping terms, general ledger, Balance Sheet, and P&L statements.

Class Description

The QuickBooks® Chart of Accounts structures your business according to accounting principles. Your general ledger includes assets, liabilities, equity, income, and expenses. Take this class to learn bookkeeping terms like Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable. By the end of this course, you’ll know how to read a Balance Sheet and a Profit and Loss report, as well as how to structure your Chart of Accounts so it supports your unique business workflow.

Your Chart of Accounts is the backbone of your business. It has two functions: outlining what the IRS wants to see for taxes, and allowing you to generate your P&L and Balance Sheet reports. There are industry-standard accounts you need, but you also have the flexibility to create accounts that reflect your unique circumstances. It’s impossible to start using QuickBooks® without customizing your Chart of Accounts. This class will explain the fundamentals.
