In case I do not get a chance to personally say it to YOU: Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Welcome to our website. We are glad you “popped by”. I would like to take this opportunity to send a “thank you” to Debra and Greg of Pixels and Print Design who have designed for us this wonderful website.They worked tirelessly with us to get this just right and I am proud of the outcome!
December is a busy month for most of us and I thought in our inaugural newsletter it would be a good idea to talk about the newest version of QuickBooks as that is what is on the store shelves now.
***By the way, if you are a BCD client, you may be able to take advantage of a discounted price when upgrading to 2014. Ask me how!
In our office we are already using the newest QB version. It allows us a chance to critique it and find workarounds for any area that tech support has yet to work out the kinks in. As most of our own clients know, I was very unhappy with last year’s version. Even now there are some glitches that have not been fixed in 2013 so I was happy to put my oar in and check out ’14. I am pleased to say, that so far, having used it for 2 months now, I am happier with this version than with 2013! Most of the glitches that appeared in 2013 have been ironed out in this new version and there have been a couple of great new features added as well. The one I like best is the new Recording an NSF cheque feature.
In the past when a customer would give you a cheque which subsequently bounced, it was necessary to create a journal entry that placed the amount owing back into that customer’s account receivable sub ledger and allowed you to record the amount that went back out of your bank account. In 2014, that has been made easier by virtue of an icon that now appears on the top of the Customer Receive Payment screen called “Record Bounced Cheque”. In 2014’s version, when the notice from the bank is received, you only need to go back to the customer payment record, click the icon and three things happen:
All of that happens within the function once you click the Record Bounced Cheque icon. Here is what the window looks like: (Click on the image for a larger view).
There are lots of other nice things about 2014…perhaps in another newsletter I will detail others for you.
