For accounting and bookkeeping software packages, QuickBooks continues to be the biggest name in town! Though setting it up sometimes presents a challenge for new users. Often, it is necessary to get a business accounting firm to assist you. For QuickBooks Help, you can count on Business & Financial Solutions.
It’s important to stay up to date with the happenings and details of your business. Likewise, it’s crucial to stay current with the accounting software you rely on to ensure your organization runs properly. Installing the latest patch updates from QuickBooks to your software is important. As these are done to catch bugs, smooth out functionality, and patch ongoing issues. These updates, which are automatically available for download are quite different than updating your company file. After you update your installation to a new version of QuickBooks (such as from QBW 2013 to QBW 2014), you’ll need to update your company file to reflect this new version. This ensures that you can view your old data with the new software version you installed.
Unless you were born with a floppy disk in your hand, it may not be exactly intuitive how to update your QuickBooks files. (without having the fear that you’ll accidentally delete or damage the data). Despite QuickBooks offering a fairly robust support page, it’s not something the average business owner wants to spend a lot of time trying navigate and figure out. This is where Business & Financial Solutions comes in.
We help make running your company easy by providing guidance and accounting expertise. And we provide resolve to a number of QuickBooks related questions and issues. That includes advanced tutorials on how to update to new versions after they’ve been installed. We leave you with tips and tricks for increasing efficiency. And we leave you with a greater understanding than you’d otherwise gain from a Google search through real, in-person guidance and assistance.
There are several nice features about QuickBooks. One is that the software update forces you to make a backup copy of your QuickBooks data. That’s right. Before your version is updated, you are required to run a backup. If you use any connected services such as payroll or credit card processing then there are requirements there too. QuickBooks then requires you upgrade versions at least every 3 years. However, it may be worthwhile and necessary to upgrade every year.
For others (depending on your circumstances), it might be simplest, as well as cheapest, to let this version endure as long as possible–though be cautious of losing customer support with older versions). Here at BFS, we have specialized knowledge and experience to help you update, install, fix, or simply maintain your QuickBooks software and data files.
