Accounting: a Very Short course
Going from here to there
is more efficient with a plan, and even more
so if the journey follows a long itinerary
with many stops. Your business needs
accounting, which will be more efficient with
a carefully designed plan. QuickBooks
provides a set of tools. When you
understand them, you can set up the
accounting system your business needs.
This is discussed after explaining what
accounting measures and why.
Accounting is a matter of
measuring the financial operations of your
business, in a manner dictated by long
experience. It is really just a
practical matter of measuring what you (and
perhaps your banker) should want to
know. The first part of the chapter
introduces accounting in the easiest terms,
about things that matter to you.
