QuickBooks Tip

Always-On Audit Trail

There are a few features in QuickBooks that always rise to the top when being discussed by accountants.  One feature that continually stays at the top of the list is the "Always On Audit Trail."

Prior to 2006, the audit trail could be turned off, thereby making it harder to track changes to the QuickBooks file and transactions.  Now, whenever a file is created, this feature is turned on and cannot be turned off.

The Always On Audit Trail records deletions, edits and any modifications made to transactions.  This will help any QuickBooks user find and correct errors more efficiently. 

Consider this:  If accountants think this is a great feature, shouldn't the rest of us?
Quotable Quotes

I hope I shall possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain what I consider the most enviable of all titles, the character of an honest man.
-George Washington

In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.  

-Bill Cosby

Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point.

-C.S. Lewis

NewYearNew Year's Fun Fact!
The celebration of the New Year is the oldest of all holidays. It was first observed in ancient Babylon about 4000 years ago, but not quite like today's New Year celebrations. Babylonians celebrated for 11 days with each day having its own particular mode of celebration, and they actually rung in the new year on what today would be around March 25th.

Late March is actually a logical choice for the beginning of a new year. It is the time of year when spring begins and and new crops are planted. January 1st on the other hand, has no astronomical or agricultural significance. It is purely arbitrary.

Most European countries adopted January 1st as the first day of the year in 1581, but in England the New Year continued to begin on March 25, until 1622.

We at Mendelson Consulting wish you our warmest wishes in this Holiday Season.  Have a joyous, prospersous, and safe New Year!
