QuickBooks Training

Training-Dates

Quickbooks is a wonderful (and easy to use) accounting package that not only helps you track your business transactions, but when set up right, can give you all kinds of useful information to run your business well and make more informed decisions.

All of our Quickbooks courses are taught by very knowledgeable and engaging instructors. We have used our expertise to develop a very thorough training program, with a focus on practical “real-life” exercises, best practices, and making sure that our students understand bookkeeping basics to ensure the integrity of their books.

We have successfully taught thousands of students, through private and group training sessions, how to take advantage of all the software has to offer. Courses taken in our Ottawa area include one month of unlimited phone support so you never have to worry about getting stuck.

* Ask us about the Canada Ontario Job Grant. You may be eligible to receive government funding to cover 2/3 of your course costs.

Registration is required as class sizes are limited to ensure that you’re getting the most out of your time with us. For more information, please contact our Training Coordinator at 613-656-0441 x441 or training@accountapotamus.com.

Quickbooks New Business Training Program

Are you a new business looking to jumpstart your books? You may want to consider our New Business Training Program, where we can offer you a complete setup file for your company, based on information provided by you, with professional-looking document templates (customized invoices, statements, etc., with or without your company logo), a complete chart of accounts, full payroll setup (if required), and everything you need to start. Training is available in all areas of Quickbooks (accounts payable, accounts receivable, payroll, general ledger, budgeting, bank and financial reporting and more) and can include as much or as little as you’re interested in taking on. Our prices include one month of unlimited phone support, so you never have to worry about getting stuck, and we’re always available.

This program includes a full day of personalized hands-on training, is tailored to the specific needs of your business and includes everything as detailed above. Most generic Quickbooks training sessions these days will run you around $600, with the content spread over two days, and given in groups of 10 people or more at a location that is not always convenient. We will come to you if you wish. What really sets us apart is that our New Business training program does all the hard work for you by setting up your company file to the point where all you have to do is turn it on and go. We work with you to identify and exceed your expectations and you will get excellent value for your money. We can leave you prepared to complete your books on your own (this will save you a lot of money), and are always here to help.

New! Quickbooks Bootcamp!

Finally, a course that combines everything you ever wanted to know about Quickbooks with bookkeeping essentials. Anyone can enter data to an accounting package, but it’s being able to answer the question, “but does it make sense?” that gives you a sound set of books.

This three-day workshop will teach you Quickbooks and Bookkeeping Best Practices, and leave you comfortable dealing with the higher-level stuff, including but not limited to Balance Sheet accounts (prepaids, capital assets and accumulated depreciation, payroll liabilities, HST, shareholder accounts, etc.), account reconciliations, month and year-end closing entries, and how to prepare, read and analyze a set of financials. We’ll also be teaching you the tricks of the trade – useful things you can do to save yourself time, including the Three-Minute Bank Rec. Participants are encouraged to bring questions – all else is provided, including lunch and refreshments.

Our Quickbooks Bootcamp is designed for:

  • Small business owners who want to take a hands-on approach with their finances but don’t have months to learn bookkeeping practices
  • Administrative and accounting employees who wish to improve their bookkeeping/accounting knowledge and increase their value in the workplace
