Bookkeeping for a Broker/Dealer Firm

Recommended Posts

I was just recently handed the task of setting up our firms books for our securities corp. We purchased the software Quickbooks. I have set up the clients/customers, employees(commission), bank, etc. But, I'm stuck on the part about the investment companies. Are the also, considered clients/customers or are they considered venders. I am signed up to take a quickbook class in November to gain more basic information about the software. I just want to know if I'm on the right track. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Aww... I missed this question when I was on earlier.


I am pretty sure that you would set them up as a customer. If I am thinking the right way, you have brokers who are subcontracting work out to you/your client, correct?


I would enter them as a customer. Once they are added, you can right click on their name in the customer list and add jobs to that broker. Does that make sense? Sorry, it's been a long day!
