Overview - What this does (and doesnt) do

The Accountants Review XE "Accountants Review"  meets a need reported by users of earlier versions of QuickBooks.  This feature, added with QuickBooks 5, allows your accountant to review your data and make accounting entries while you continue to enter daily business transactions.

The review is accomplished by generating a specially labelled backup copy to be taken to the accountants office.  This file must be processed with another copy of QuickBooks 5 to make the necessary entries.  An updating file is returned to the clients office, and the journal entries are merged into the active company file.

This system has limitations.  The accountant can do little more than make general journal entries. While the review copy is out, a few restrictions are placed on the main copy of your company file.  These are removed when the system is updated with the return of the updated copy.    

As this book goes to press in the fall of 1997, QuickBooks remains a single-user program, and the Accountants Review does not provide a work-around.  It is, however, an improvement on the former method of having the accountant take a regular backup copy, effectively eliminating any entry to QuickBooks until this could be reviewed, changed, and restored.
