QuickBooks Online 2016 Tutorial - Setting Up The Free Account

BY Eddy Hood In Profitability On May 18, 2016 With 0 Comments

Today marks the first video of our QuickBooks Online 2016 tutorial.  In total, there will be 24 videos to this series.

The goal is to help entrepreneur's just like you to master their company finances and navigate this software.  In today's video, we'll be setting up the free account so that you can try before you buy. 



Setting Up the Free QuickBooks Online Trial

Before we get started, make sure to download the free trial.  To do that, go to http://www.quickbooks.intuit.com to get started.  In the top right-hand corner, click "free trial".  There are a lot of options available to you, but I'm guessing that most businesses will want to use the "Essentials" package which is $27 a month at the time of this blog post.  

Why Use The Essentials Package

This package allows you to track income and expenses as well as manage your bills and pull the reports you're going to need to make wise decisions as a business owner.  You can always upgrade or downgrade if you want.
