When you’re running a convenience store or gas station, it’s complex to track fuel, food, and merchandise sales. When you throw ATMs, lottery tickets, tobacco incentives, and a deli into the mix, it’s even harder. And if your employees and local businesses run charge accounts, how do you track those?

This template system can be used in the QuickBooks Desktop or Online versions, leveraging your Point of Sale reports to track your income and expenses.

This download file includes a complete QuickBooks Desktop file with a Chart of Accounts, Items List, Memorized Transactions, and Custom Reports, everything you need for day-to-day operations. Customize it for your specific needs.

Implementing this complete QuickBooks Template system will eliminate hours and hours of time in setting up your new QuickBooks file by hand.

The PDF explains all the terminology and features used in the file. Note that is not a complete tutorial for using QuickBooks, and assumes some prior knowledge.

The file can also be imported into QuickBooks® Online, with a few additional steps to create the Custom Reports. This fully-functional QuickBooks file can also be used for related industries, including retail.

 This template is absolutely fascinating! I had no idea how complicated a Gas Station was, and how cleverly Alicia has tricked out QBO to manage the complexity. I highly recommend it.
