    GREAT JOB. Thank you. Any suggestions on where I can continue my education?

    • Learn Quickbooks Free says:

      I really don’t know unless you want to become a Quickbooks certified User which is a bit costly.
      We are hoping within the next 2 months to come up with a membership site that will have monthly updates on Quickbooks, proper accounting methods to use with Quickbooks & tax updates,
      Sign up on the form on the right hand side of the website where it says connected. You will get into our newsletter that will have all sorts of cool and informational info.

      Thanks for visiting

    • Learn Quickbooks Free says:

      We are going to be launching Accounting 101 soon which has to do with Chart of Accounts and other areas of quickbooks, but also other components of accounting that in conjuction.

    Good content for the bookkeeper who is in the process of learning your new programs and features.

  3. Denise Gaines says:

    Nice, would be even better if we could work along with you.
    Have access to a sample quick book.

  4. marie says:

    I greatly appreciate your free lessons on quickbooks. I have learned a lot.

  5. Tee says:

    Can I ask what type of quickbooks these tutorials are for? Because I see there are lots of types and I’m new to it. Thank you

  6. Teresa says:

    Let me know when you have tutorial on QB 2012.
    And, how do we become a certified QB user?

    More power!

  7. Brend says:

    Thanks for the start.
    I don’t think it’s right to buy a product then have to pay to learn how to use it. It should have tutorials like this on a cd with the product.
    I need to learn more though!

  8. eleni says:

    you are awesome, I just took on line classes and my job just handed me this task, I was stressing so bad, and so glad to find your site, you are a great teacher, I have retained more in watching and listening to your class then I did in my orginial class, I am now a dedicated fan

  9. […] Accounting is the basis to every business.Watch videos on Quickbooks Tutorials […]

  10. Dom says:

    Thanks so much for doing these. It’s nice to have someone with charisma teaching you accounting. You’re voice kind of reminds me of Top Cat 😉

  11. Abby says:

    payables part 2 is cut short

  12. Abby says:

    I’ve learnt alot from your lessons. Great job!

  13. Haris says:

    You are awesome teacher!

  14. Valerio says:

    This was by far the best tutorials on quickbooks. Im starting a new job, and i was a bit rusty. Not anymore.

  15. I love your site – I use it to train new employee’s “Thumb’s Up” to you!!!!

  16. Naah says:

    Thank you. Great presentation. Simple and straightforward.

  17. Cynthia says:

    Which version of Quickbooks are you using? I am using Pro 2011 version and there are some things that I do not have that you are demonstrating. I am very grateful for this site and am making a donation!

    • Learn Quickbooks Free says:

      Im using Quickbooks Pro 2009. I personally upgrade every 4-5 years. I don’t find a world of a difference for the level that I use it at. Yes, they do move things around a bit, but the basis of accounting has always been the same and will always be the same. You just have to figure out with the new layout where things are.

      I will probably be coming out with a 2013 upgrade video next year, but this year sticking with 2009 as right now we are also veering into doing videos on accounting 101 as well as Free Tax Advice.

      Don’t forget to register to our Video Newsletter for cool updates.
      THANK YOU!

  18. Denise says:

    Thanks for this very helpful info. Do any of the videos show or discuss memorized transactiona? I thought it would be in the Customer segment but it was not. Thanks again.

  19. Arijit Chakraborty says:

  20. Arijit Chakraborty says:

  24. Yacoubousofo says:

    I’ve just found out that there is a website that can teach quickbooks. Thanks a lot for designing such a website. I will need this website to improve my knowledge as far as bookkeeping and accounting are concerned.

    • Learn Quickbooks Free says:

      You are welcome.

      Don’t forget to share this with your friends as well.

  25. Luciano says:

    Hi there,

    Thank you sooo much for posting all this videos. You have saved my life!!!

  26. m b says:

    have just finished the intro – thanks for the jumpstart. can you suggest anything more a little more in depth? i’m a novice trying to land a job, and the system is already in place, so basically will be entering data.

  27. Carla says:

    The Tutorials have really helped me! I feel more confident that I will be able to find and enter data where it is to be entered. I will probably go back and view the Tutorials a couple more times before my interview next week. With the help of The Tutorials the possibility for working as an office assistant has just jumped up a notch or two for me. Thanks again and keep up the good work!

    • Learn Quickbooks Free says:

      Hello Carla,

      You are most welcome.

      I’m actually wanting to start a survey for people who visit this site and all those who are willing to participate.
      I am wondering how old you are?

      Anyone else willing to respond with your age would be most appreciated.

      Thanks Everyone

  28. Learn Quickbooks Free says:

    Another Friendly Survey to all.

    1. What is your favorite Magazine to Read?

  29. DebG. says:

    These tutorials are FANTASTIC! I viewed them all (including the email question responses) and am now going back as needed as I enter data into Quickbooks for the first time ever for my small business as my first taxes are due very quickly.

    This has really shown me the importance of entering data into Quickbooks at least every month if not every couple of days rather than going through an entire first year of business and then trying to catch up 🙁

    I’m sure I’ll have more questions as I refine my process after tax time, but this was enough to do what I needed to do for my accountant.


    PS I’ll deny it and would prefer you to burn this part of my post, but… I’m 43.

    PPS I’ll be donating after I find out how my taxes go, too!


    • Learn Quickbooks Free says:

      Hello Deb,

      Thanks forthe compliments, I truly enjoy helping people.

      Thanks for your honesty as well regarding you age. Remember, no shame in the game.
      We are just like Fine Wine. We just get better with Age!

      Take Care!

      PS – I spend about 5 minutes each day doing my books, in that way each month when I reconcile, takes me minutes, and when ready to do my taxes, I’m always organized and also takes me minutes to get papers ready.

  30. Debbie Troutman says:

  31. Parminder says:

  33. Manishin Vyas says:

  34. Manishin Vyas says:

    Hi! Many thanks for Excellent teachings. How can I learn Advance lessons of Quickbooks? How can I practice and master it?

    • Learn Quickbooks Free says:


      Best practice in anything is real life situation of course as different situations come up is when you really learn.
      You can also become Quickbooks Certified which cost money which would probably be your next best option.

  35. Lynette says:

    Can you please teach me how to set up the company’s main and branch.

  36. NaturaLee says:

    Thank you for these lessons: a lot to take in all at once so it’s nice to be able to go back and review. I found these videos helpful.

  37. JGough54 says:

    I am brushing up for a test on Quickbooks for a new job. Haven’t been in the job market for years and didn’t know they tested on Quickbooks now. This was a great review for that test since I haven’t used Quickbooks for about 6 years. You are great!!! Thanks

  38. joe says:

    Thank you for the series, it helps a lot as I’m just starting a business and using quickbooks for the first time. I have a question with vendor and paying bill. How would I enter the following scenario: Employee/Director purchases a computer from say Canadian Computing for the office and pays with his/her personal funds. The company then pays the employee back cash for the item.

    I’ve tried entering the bill as Canadian Computing and put it as an office expense (personal preference for taking the hit all at once as you said in your video), but how do I show the money to the employee as when you hit pay bill, want’s to write check to vendor as opposed to the employee? Thanks in advance if you can help.

    • joe says:

      don’t know if important or not, using QB pro 2012

    • admin says:


      You have a couple of options.

      1. You can make the vendor “Canadian Computing” since technically speaking, you did pay cash. (This is your best way to record it) Dont worry about the fact that you paid her and she paid cash. It’s still cash all the way.
      2. You can make the vendor “Employees Name” which will have to be a separate vendor name for the same person to keep the books clean. The bank account would be Petty Cash. (This is if you want to be technical about it)

      Hope this helps.
      Sorry for the late response. I have been unavailable and email issues.

  39. Kelly says:

    I needed to learn the basics of Quickbooks quickly for a job interview. I reviewed each section a couple of times and feel I will test well. Wish me luck with the job. THANK YOU for providing a much-needed free source of information. To answer the age question…..48 (don’t tell).
    Thank you again.

  40. Andrea says:

    I just want to say thank you for these tutorials. I havent used QB in over 8 years. I have been a Legal Asst/Asst. Office Mgr for the past 7 years. But, have not had to use the program or have the knowledge of payroll, benefits. This is a non-traditional position and our HR/Accounting depts are in another office. I am interviewing for another mgmt position with another firm (time to use my skills and move to the next level). I viewed your tutorials for 2 days. I took my test for the company today. Mind you the last version I used was 02. I was tested in 2010 version. I scored a 77%. Not bad! Thanks to you! Keep up the good work. I am ready for more in depth QB and accounting tutorials. I will check back to let you know if I got the job. Thanks again

    • admin says:

      Awesome! Good luck on the job interview. Yes Accounting is the basis to every business. I’m not a CPA, nor do I have an accounting degree to be very honest. I’ve been practicing accounting for over 15 years between different jobs and businesses

  41. Sandy says:

    I’m looking for a job and many postings require Quickbooks knowledge. I’m a visual learner, and your tutorial was great, I took lots of notes and will review everything several times until I feel confident. Thank you!

  45. Stephanie says:

    I work in the HVAC business with contractors. I need to keep up with all the houses they build and we install so but I dont want to create a new customer every time we install in a house. Is there a way I can do this and keep up with all houses, payments per house and so forth? I cant find the answer anywhere so I am hoping you can help me.

  46. bachittar singh says:

    woohoo! thanks much for doing all of this hard work. 2 hours ago, i was far away from knowing the quickbooks. you just made it easy for me to learn. I will probably watch these video one more time to master what you taught. Looking forward for more advanced videos. thank you.

  47. Nasrat says:

    I am very Happy which I have learn to much from these Useful. Effective and interesting lessons that was great presentation very good tutorials totally good .

  48. Janice DeRobbio says:

    I have a service company and bought a large piece of equipment with a loan. When I first started the company in quickbooks I was not sure how to list the loan and make payments. The guy from quickbooks set it up for me instead of telling me how to do it. Now I am confused as to where the account is set up and how to pay it. Ideally I would like to just set it up all over again and delete what ever he did is this possible and can you tell me the proper way to set up a major purchase?

  49. Sandrine says:

    Hi… I’m very very grateful for these tutorials.. When I first had to work with QuickBooks I started on my own.. after some while I realized I could not deal with it alone. I needed held to be able to do a lot with QB. In my country I can’t even find help. So I went to YouTube and so I ended up on this site, which make me less nervous. I am very very happy

    To begin: I work for a company which makes kitchen for people. I do accounting.
    My question is: Can I accord all costs from one project in one place. For example: I have three projects at the same time and I want to accord these costs separately so I can see exactly how much the project have cost me and how much it offered. While all these cost are being updated in expense.

    Second question: How do I the inventory I have separate from the specific things I buy to use on one single project. Like a microwave or refrigerator I had to buy for a project.
    No hard feeling about my age : I’m 21 , student at a university . Thank u

  50. Esthert says:

    Very useful, clear and I could get everything the first time. Wish you could cover payroll also.
    Overall a well presented lesson.


  51. Ngoc Anh Nguyen says:

    This is great! Thank you so much, I’ve learned more and more as I continue watching the videos, and you’re so good as a tutor.

  52. Becky says:

    I do the books for a family owner business. we have no employees but receivables and payables are part of the business. We are all owners of the business. I need to give each owner a tax form to claim on their taxes, how do I do that. A friend said it would be a K1 tax form. Was she right?

    • admin says:

      If its not an LLC or Corporation and jsut Sole Proprietorship/Parternship in a sense, than I would personally just do a 1099. The Company will pay less in Payroll taxes and the Owners have a bit more flexibility on more personal/business related deductions.

  53. Jo says:

    Very easy lessons. Thank you so much.

  54. ian skeen says:

    thank you so much for the information. wow this will definetely help me because i only knew exel.

  55. maria says:

    The tutorial was very helpful-nice pace. I had tried learning the program from a bookkeeper, but she was just too fast, and that made the whole process very confusing. This was much better. I just have two questions-in health care often invoices are sent out with the expectation that the third party insurers will not pay the full amount billed, but pay what they consider usual and customary for services rendered. If the provider is a participating provider, this payment is considered payment in full of the invoice. How would this be reconciled in the program? Also these invoices are generated on medical billing programs with special billing sheets that detail insurance (diagnositic and procedure) codes for the services that are not listed on quickbook invoices provided. If I used quickbooks, would I have to generate a duplicate invoice or is there another way around this?

    • admin says:

      Hello Maria,

      I’m not quite understanding your questions.

      In health care, often invoices are sent out (Sent out to whom? Patient or Insurance Company)

      So if you have an invoice for $500, If the insurance company pays $400, and patient pays $100, then you can either record that into 2 separate invoices, or just make one invoice for $500 and record 2 payments on that invoice.

      Quickbooks is mainly to keep records for Taxes first and foremost. It doesnt have tools that can be used for clients/vendors, however it’s not a sophisticated billing system for industries such as yours, so I’m still not understanding what you are trying to carry over that you can’t.

  56. Susie says:

    Hi, I’ve been loving your video tutorials! I purchased a new computer, and now when I visit your video page it says “missing plug-in” where the videos should be. Any recommendations on how to fix this? Do I need to download something to my computer so that I can view them?

    Thx so much!

  57. Dee says:

    I just wanted to say I enjoyed your tutorials and appreciate the fact that you set this up to help so many. I am looking for a job and wanted to brush up my skills as much as possible. I was hoping that you might try to set up a kind of skills test in quick books for future use.
    Again, thank you so much.

  58. Sharon Thomas says:

    Where do I go for help for Non-Profits? Working in that environment is different than that for the for profit.

  59. Saloumeh says:

    Good Luck

  60. patti andrews says:

    our bookkeeper is currently using 2006 peachtree. i need to learn and take over the bookkeeping to feel more in control of my store’s accounting but have only basic knowledge. my sister recommended quickbooks, which my cpa can also work with. so i need to know if you have a tutorial on how to seamlessly convert from peachtree 2006 to quickbooks 2011. i read something that said you need a beginning balance on all accounts first of all, where do i find that? is there an easier way to convert than starting from scratch?

  61. Ching-ming Liu says:

    Thank you very much for Michelle Long and free learning website of Quickbooks. This was a great afternoon of my Quickbooks’ learning journey. Although, my knowledge of Quickbooks is not enough, it is so important for me to gain the confidence to learn all kind of accounting related skills by this free demonstration journey. You make me feel myself great. I appreciate all of you.
