  1. Hi everybody, I have developped a small expertise in doing the bookkeeping/reporting for Canadian Real Estate Brokers, Realtor and Agents. (FR: agence immobilière, courtier immobilier, agent immobilier) I use Quickbooks Online for my expertise, and it can possibly be extended to Xero as well. It allows Brokers to get (with a few click of the mouse) detailed reports on: Income per properties Expenses per properties Profit per properties Intrust / in trust reports per properties These details are very important for Realtor, Real Estate Broker's managers and having the ability to get these with only few clicks of the mouse is a huge time saving!! No need to wait for excel sheets being updated, all this is available within the bookkeeping software after I have set up the system accordingly. I believe I can help Brokers and Agents move their company to the next level of success! Please do not hesitate to contact me for a free 15 min consultation. Best regards, Nadine LeBrun | Onyxia Bookkeeping Bookkeeper and Accountant Certified QuickBooks Online ProAdvisor | Xero Certified Advisor | Certified QuickBooks Online Payroll
  2. I specialize in bookkeeping, have been doing it for more than 17 years, (Accounts Payable & Receivable, General Ledger, Cashbook, VAT, Inventory, Financial reports) & payroll. I use Quickbooks and Excel. I also do budgets (planning and projecting).
  3. In need of an alternative way to share your QuickBooks files? Sick and tired of sending QBW files back and forth, screen sharing, paying for expensive cloud hosting or downloading/uploading QuickBook files? Fear not, I have a solution! ..Well 3 actually. This article from Sandy Morgan of Almost Anything LLC informs us of 3 other options that we could be looking into to share our QuickBooks files. Click the following link to learn more http://www.qbquestions.com/?p=167 (Personally I would recommend checking out the 3rd solution, but I'm a little biased haha)
  4. Xero or QuickBooks?

    Hey all. Just a quick question for you. I have been contemplating adding bookkeeping to my services and have been watching Ben Robinson's free webinar series. For day 2 he recommended Xero over QuickBooks and I just wondered what other opionions were. I have used QuickBooks a little, FreshBooks a little(for myself), and was trained a long time ago with Simply Accounting(is that even around anywhere anymore? LOL) So if I do not have to spend time learning a new system, it might give my brain a break, Not sure about you but I already have a list of things to study and every day it seems like I find something else to bookmark and get back to. So what I was wondering was if you all could just share the pros, cons and what-not for each so I could have a better understanding before making a decision. Thanks! I appreciate it.
  5. This true story by Sandy Morgan of Almost Anything LLC, gives great advice on how one would prevent themselves from opening the wrong QuickBooks file. Opening the wrong file is a huge deal and could lead to major difficulties if it occurs. It happens more often than you think, so be aware and prepared or else you could fall into the same trap! Click on the following link to learn about how to prevent it from happening to you! http://www.qbquestions.com/?p=215
  6. Just a friendly reminder to: Reduce the Possibility of a Corrupted QuickBooks File Through Back Up With Verification! There are many QuickBooks users that do not routinely back up their QBW files. Now, with the multitude of cloud based back up resources, more QuickBooks desktop users are doing a better job of backing up and protecting their data, but the main file is still vulnerable if verification is not done. When a file is backed up using the QuickBooks functions, you are also provided the opportunity to include “verification”. In simple terms, verification is a cleanup process for the file that purges out deleted transaction, resets the TLG (log file), and also identifies any other conflicts that may require additional steps to stabilize the file. If verification is not performed on a regular basis, the file runs a much greater risk of corruption. One simple way to evaluate whether or not a file has recently gone through the verification process is to check the size of the associated TLG file. After verification, the TLG will reduce to around 300 KB. If not verified regularly, the TLG can grow very large and actually exceed the size of the QBW file. If the TLG has grown disproportionately large, a local back up with full verification is recommended. The bottom line is, keeping your QuickBooks file healthy will avoid the headaches and loss of time related to restoring a corrupted file.

  8. Just QuickBooks?

    This seems to be the only bookkeeping forum here, and it seems to be all about QuickBooks. Doesn't anyone else out there use Sage 50 (Simply Accounting?) I've been using Simply Accounting (to give it its old name) for eight years. I'm currently taking a course on QuickBooks, and I must say I don't really care for it much! Maybe it's because Simply Accounting is more aimed towards the trained bookkeeper, while QuickBooks seems to aim toward being usable for businesspeople even if they aren't bookkeepers. Of course, part of the reason may be that VANetworking is primarily US-based, while Sage is a Canadian company. Any other Simply Accounting/Sage users out there? Jeri Woods, Dustwood Media
  9. Hello Fellow VA's, I have an average of 12 team members on my multi-va team. I am having trouble finding the best way to calculate and run payroll. Especially as the hourly rate is different for different clients, and some of the projects are flat rate monthly. This makes it difficult to find a program that will allow me to enter different hourly rates, etc. for an individual. To date, I have been using a project management and time tracking integrated program, and entering the information into an Excel Spreadsheet that is already set up with the calculations. This seems to be a bit more tedious, and open to the potential for more errors. I am wondering what anyone else in the same or a similar situation has found helpful for payroll. I am open to any suggestions and/or questions! Thank you!

  11. My name is Carol Murchie and you can find my new virtual assistance business at www.yourvirtualsherpa.com. I just launched Your Virtual Sherpa at the end of May 2012. It seemed a logical transition from conventional careers and jobs because I have re-invented myself in many ways over the past several years. At this time I am getting the word out and hoping to get new client prospects identified. My original training is in librarianship (Master's Degree from the University of Michigan) and after several years in the traditional field, I moved onto database conversion specifications and project management for an electronic publisher. With consolidation in the industry, I worked as a contractor and consultant with primary focus on more database management, indexing, research, and in more recent years I worked as a finance manager for a nonprofit where I largely taught myself Quickbooks and some accounting. My chief skills are in conducting research (just about anything you can think of, from harpoons to land disposition laws), organizing databases, search engine technology, and nonprofit governance. My technology toolbelt has included various Web search engines and browsers, Quickbooks, Microsoft Office, Documentum, Lotus Notes, Blackbaud Raiser's Edge, Re: Discovery Museum software, Past Perfect Museum software, and Wordpress. I continue to take advantage of any new technology training or hands-on practice for same. My alternative tagline for Your Virtual Sherpa is "Let me go crazy so you won't have to!" I live in Fairhaven Massachusetts with my two cats, Henry and Duncan. They serve as paperweights in the office. I have a concierge service locally for pet-sitting and even have helped people get their car's problems fixed when they are too busy flying around the world to do it themselves! I look forward to being part of a fascinating universe of people who are equally talented in all sorts of things--I'm still a librarian in that I love to help people through referrals when a task falls outside my generalist "grab-bag" of goodies!
  12. Re: http://www.sleeter.com/blog/2012/06/quickbooks-professional-bookkeeper-2012/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed:+QuickBooksAndBeyond+%28QuickBooks+and+Beyond%29#.T-XnDfUvuP9 I was reading this article at Sleeter. I must agree with them. I'm not sure I see the point. If you are going to use those functions with the "Bookkeeper" edition, you would want to spend the $100 bucks and get the full premier accountant edition. Especially for the report writer since reports are what bookkeepers do a lot of these days. Kind of an odd move by Intuit. Not really sure what the deal is there, but thought I'd share. Make sure you scroll down to the bottom to see the differences. Weird.
