  1. I was recently asked a question about choosing invoice software by a new VA that’s just started their business and wondered with which software I suggested they start. The VA said “I've been leaning towards using Freshbooks but then I recently learned that Xero has a great project management feature which can be great for a small business.” My response to them was pretty straight forward. “I have no experience with Xero, which is fairly new on the scene and my little bit of experience with Freshbooks I was not impressed. I will tell you that for US Based bookkeeping, the majority of small businesses (and CPAs) prefer QuickBooks primarily; of course this is mostly due to marketing (think Microsoft vs. Apple). I think you would be best off going with bookkeeping specific software and separate management software (many of which are free and info can be found on this forum.) I then explained that if they had considered and discarded QuickBooks because it is so expensive I could suggest an alternative to the high-priced versions. In 2010, QuickBooks put out a free version of "QuickBooks Simple Start", which is great for basic bookkeeping when you are starting out. My first version of my book "How To Do Your Own Small Business Bookkeeping" was based on QB Simple Start. Because the software was free, I still include a cd-rom copy of the software with the book when folks purchase the book through me. A cd-rom copy means that it is not cloud based and that it will be on your hard drive only. I am not a big fan of cloud-based when folks are starting out as it can be fairly expensive as there are usually monthly if not annual charges involved. So, when possible, I load software on my desktop computer. The QB Simple Start 2010 version of my book with the free software is $24.99 including shipping if you order it directly from me. The full version of my book, which is currently for QB 2014 (and is a completely different program than the QB Simple Start) is available at Amazon for $44.95, but you have to buy the software separately, which can run over $150.00. Please note I don't recommend purchasing any software used as if it has been registered once you can't re-register it without buying a new license, so you would be back to paying for full price software. I have attached sample pages for QBSS 2010. If anyone is interested in purchasing the book/software package, simply pay me for for it through Paypal (send a payment to lily@virtualofficegoddess.com); Be sure and include your mailing address in the notes section of the payment and I will get it right out to you. And, of course, you can always PM me here or email me if you have any questions regarding this or any other bookkeeping-related questions.

  2. 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.
  3. 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!

  4. Hi Everyone, I have had a request from a potential client to provide a quote to do a 12 page newsletter. She would like me to set it up to enable her to add and edit the content, to be able to have it in pdf and jpeg format. In all my years of designing newsletters and leaflets I have always used MS Word, I have used this to create templates for other people and it has always been professional. Can other VAs give some feedback on the software they use to create newsletter templates to enable clients to edit? Would use charge by the hour for this service or as a package / project? Thanks,

  7. 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!
