The Epic Practice
Scaling New Height conference for QuickBooks ProAdvisors
Laura Madeira of ACS, Inc. is headed to the sunny Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island in the Bahamas for Scaling New Heights. Why don’t you join her? Don’t worry, we will find some time for the beach sand, and perhaps swimming with the dolphins – but first why not use some of your time there to become an expert working with QuickBooks Desktop for Contractors?
Laura has been recognized as one of the Top 100 and Top 10 QuickBooks ProAdvisors and has been teaching QuickBooks to accounting professionals for many years. She is also the author of several QuickBooks books and self-paced training videos. Come and learn from the best! We talked with Laura about her upcoming two-part course: QuickBooks Desktop for Contractors scheduled for the Monday, May 23rd session:
“I have been working with construction industry clients on the proper use of QuickBooks for many, many years. If I tell you how many, I will give away my age! While I enjoy speaking on many topics, I am excited to share with you my experience in working with an industry that often lacks accounting knowledge and is often surrounded by chaos; the construction industry." In addition to my QuickBooks certifications, I am also a Sage 100 Contractor certified consultant. "I look forward to sharing with you my experience of focusing on the construction client using QuickBooks for Contractors."
Laura told Insightful Accountant, "In this two-part course (200 minutes total), I want to look Beyond the Numbers and share with you how to be a trusted advisor to your QuickBooks for Contractor clients." All the information provided in this QuickBooks Desktop course will be of value for any client that reports costs by job.
In this course, I am making the assumption that you already know how to add to the items list, enter and pay a bill, and reconcile the bank account in QuickBooks, for example. More important than these simple QuickBooks tasks, do you know what the following terms mean?
- Turnkey Job
- Progress Payments
- Lien Waiver
- Completed Contract Method
- % of Completion Method
In this QuickBooks for Contractors course, you will learn how to “walk the talk”, helping you connect with the contractor and gaining credibility with a new prospect in this industry. When you finish the course, you will know how to use the terms your client uses in their business, how to properly setup QuickBooks and how to troubleshoot for proper job and corporate profitability reporting.
Join me for a packed two-part session. Learn more than just how to use QuickBooks for the construction industry, learn about what their business needs are. "This industry is very rewarding financially for the accounting consultant, and offers you the opportunity to create a niche market for yourself.”
