How QuickBooks Premier 2008 can help you

  Improved & simplified accounting controls

   Improved & simplified accounting controls help you prevent, find & correct errors. New and enhanced tools - including the always-on Audit Trail - give you more confidence in your business data and make it easier to fix errors.

  • Audit Trail - The always-on Audit Trail makes it easier for you or your book-keeper to locate & correct errors
  • Information protection - Set permissions levels to control user access to your files, and password-protect closing dates
  • Advanced journalling - Auto-reverse journal entries & post journals directly to Retained Earnings

Included: Remote access. Retrieve your QuickBooks files anytime, anywhere with one year of free remote access.1

SCREEN SHOTS
The new Home Page

 

See your entire business at a glance with the new QuickBooks Home Page. Divided into three centres - Employees, Customers and Suppliers - and with clear icons & titles to help you find the right information faster, the Home Page is the first step in a two-click process that takes you from an overview of your financials to the details you need
 
 
Track stock item by item
 
Items are a quick, easy way to enter data into QuickBooks forms and ensure consistency. Get a general overview of your stock or an itemised view, as above - and QuickBooks handles the behind-the-scenes record-keeping.
 
 
 
Track stock in QuickBooks
 
If your business buys and sells goods, QuickBooks can track the current number in stock and its value after each purchase and sale. Easily keep track of the income you receive from the sale of stock items. As you sell stock, QuickBooks tracks changes, so you always know what you have on hand.
 
 
 
The QuickBooks Audit Trail
 
Familiar, easy-to-read screens - like the QuickBooks Audit Trail - help you view your business at a glance and track any modifications to your financial information. See more activity details, including voided, deleted or cancelled transactions.
 
 
 
 
Make journal entries
 
Throughout QuickBooks, you'll find straightforward forms that make it easy to transition from manual accounting methods to software. This journal entry display shows how simple it is to add and view transactions: simply type your information into a field and save it. (Journal history available in QuickBooks Premier only.)
 
 
 
What is a journal entry?
 
When you enter any business transaction into your QuickBooks software, you are making a journal entry. The journal keeps a record of those transactions and their details.
 
 
 
 
Centres to show you general & specific data: Supplier Centre
Our new Supplier Centre gives you a clear look at where your money is going. See in one simple screen all your suppliers and exactly what you owe them.
No need to run separate reports or go to different screens - in the Supplier Centre, you can see exactly how much business you're doing with each individual supplier.
 
 
Use e-mail to communicate with clients faster
Once you've created an invoice, simply e-mail it via Outlook to the client or clients you'd like to contact. Invoices are attached as PDFs, and content - such as the body of the e-mail and the subject line - are automatically filled in using templated language on file.

Make adjustments to the e-mail until it suits your needs - then send it off and await payment.
