HARTINGTON, NEBRASKA – A two-day Basic QuickBooks workshop will be offered to local entrepreneurs and business owners on Monday, April 29, and Monday, May 6.

“Accurate recordkeeping can be beneficial to the success of an entrepreneur’s business,” said Kim Preston, REAP Women’s Business Center director. “Recordkeeping can quickly identify past due accounts and help collect those accounts in a more timely manner. That helps cash flow and viability.”

Small business owners will learn how to track income and expenses, set up a company file, create customers and vendors, generate reports, and use other QuickBooks features. Diann Ballard will lead the course.
