I have an interview coming up and I’m very excited but kind of afraid because I didn’t use Quickbooks system I did bookkeeper job over software like SAP I’m no sure if both systems are very different or if they are the same.

  7. Explained this better than my teacher I’m in community for business (taking beginner accounting classes) this has been very helpful with describing the lingo

  8. I graduated a year ago with a bachelor’s in science with an accounting emphasis. I have been having a hard time finding accounting jobs that don’t want 5 years experience. Would book keeping be a good option to look into?

    1. Bookkeeping could be a great option! You have a solid financial background it sounds like, and you don’t need any certifications to get started. -Gabe (FinePoints Admin)

    2. @FinePoints thanks for responding. It’s hard to find any jobs sadly. I’ll keep looking though!

  9. I have few questions. There are 3 partners A,B,C in partnership llc. So what type of accounts to make for them in chart of accounts in QuickBooks at the time of their investments. Suppose A has invested $100,000, B has invested $ 200,000 and C $200,000. The second question is that the business has incurred loss in first year of its operations $ 150,000 and in second year 100,000. A profit and share ratios are A 50%, B 25% and C 30%. So which account and how they will be distributed in QuickBooks accounts. I want to know the specific chart of accounts for these 3 partners. How to make current accounts for these 3 partners with debit balances due to loss. Please reply me and make 1 video also for partnership business with the 3 partners A, B, C in QuickBooks.

    1. This is a specific question, and we recommend networking inside different FB groups to get answers like this 🙂 -Gabe (FinePoints Admin)
