QuickBooks is a financial recordkeeping program and management tool. The program allows you to track and manage income, expenses, bank accounts, receivables, inventory, fixed assets, payables, loans, payroll and equity in your farm business. QuickBooks also provides you with standard and customized detailed reports that are essential to making good decisions.

In these hands-on computer workshops you will develop a set of farm financial records and reports. You will learn how QuickBooks is structured, how it files work, and how to navigate in the system to tailor your financial recordkeeping for your farm business.

Registration includes lunch, manual, and a flash drive with an example chart of accounts. Space is limited so please enroll early, please note that full payment for workshop guarantees a spot. For registration information please call the local extension office for registration and cost. 

These QuickBooks workshops are sponsored by UW-River Falls, Center for Dairy Profitability, and UW-Extension County Offices and are partially funded by a USDA Risk Management Agency grant.
