Doing your Books Without the Drama. The Devil Wears Prada – The Fun Romantic Drama
Often my new clients think of QuickBooks in one of two ways. Either as a daunting, intimidating software that they will easily and quickly mess up or as a customizable accounting system where they jump in and build it to look like what they think an accounting/bookkeeping system should look like, using their own sense of logic. The first business owner or administrator displays fear and intrepidation of not knowing and knows they don’t know, while the second owner conversely overestimates their accounting abilities and sometimes unknowingly but blissfully bypassing normal accounting rules and regulations. Unfortunately at times there is also the pervasive and simple attitude of “The rules don’t apply to me or my situation. ”
My method of simple, streamlined Bade Achhe Lagte Hain Today Episode bookkeeping while keeping out the clutter allows businesses to easily review their numbers and understand their revenue and profit or loss so they can make better decisions about their operations. In both cases above one client is cared for with reassurance that QuickBooks can be fixed and they can’t mess up something that bad. Yes I know that there are rare occurrences where starting over is the option, but it has happened only once in my 10 year QuickBooks business experience. The other client is gently molded with more favorable suggestions or highly recommended steps to bring their data file in line with normal accounting structure so that it can benefit both their time and expense.
I actually had to tell one medical Bade Achhe Lagte Hain Today Episode professional business owner to please not tell their CPA my name because I was embarrassed by how the client set up the file and was politely refusing to do it any other way. He had actually made all of his vendors the chart of accounts and all of the chart of accounts his vendor list. It was really quite creative~! My method is not to judge or scold with stern speeches, but to guide and offer options so the client will understand and equally as important, their CPA and the IRS will not have any questions with regards to their financial file when we are done.
