Don't Open the Windows (Just Yet)


pensieve-computer-lady.jpg It is easy enough to say, "I'll wait until Windows 10 has been out a few months before I'll bother with it." That is a good idea.  I don't recommend that you be an "early adopter" of any new release. The problem is I know that as soon as it is available on July 29, some of our clients will start using it, in spite of our recommendations.  Microsoft is already starting to push information on Windows 10 out to users of Windows 7 and Windows 8 with a "Get Windows 10" icon right on the system tray.


So, if you're like us, and use QuickBooks, some of your questions about compatibility might be:

  • Does QuickBooks work with Windows 10 at all?
  • Will the QuickBooks update process work?
  • Can I save forms as a PDF using the QuickBooks PDF mechanism?
  • Can I reconcile an account (which saves a PDF internally) and open past reconciliations?
  • Some features in QuickBooks require Internet Explorer - will those still work?
  • Will QuickBooks still integrate with Microsoft Office?
  • Will Intuit-provided extensions still work, such as QuickBooks Statement Writer, Loan Manager, Cash Flow Projector, Fixed Asset Manager and Business Planner?

At Off-Site Business Services, we recommend that you be careful and don't rush into Windows 10 right away. Let other people test the waters first. If you have to jump in then you should make a full system-image backup first, as that is the only way you can roll back to your prior version if you find that there are problems. 


If you have questions about working with QuickBooks after you launch Windows 10, give me a call. 


Post the Correct Numbers 


Owning and operating a small business is an exciting venture.
However, it poses its own unique challenges. Accounting is central to running a small business, but unless the business is an accounting firm, most entrepreneurs are not professional accountants.


The heart of accounting is bookkeeping. Keeping a record of receipts and expenditures is critical for any business. It's also very time-consuming; in fact, the more successful a business is, the more work hours that must be devoted to posting its ledger. A business owner just starting out will likely choose to handle the books personally. This works in the beginning, but as the business grows it takes time away from what the business owner does best - running the actual business!


The clear solution is to find a specialist to handle the books. Out-sourcing bookkeeping to Off-Site Business Services is a great solution - the small business gains the benefit of a professional bookkeeper without the expense of an additional employee. With an Off-Site professional, the business doesn't even have to devote additional work space.


Not only can we save work hours, we can also help streamline the bookkeeping process. Because there's no legal requirement for managing the books save accuracy, there's no one standardized system. Our experienced bookkeepers are familiar with a variety of bookkeeping systems and can develop one that best suits a small business' needs.
