RELEASED: Feb. 4, 2008

EAU CLAIRE — The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Small Business Development Center and Continuing Education will offer practical tips and techniques for using QuickBooks 2008 software for small business in hands-on workshops.

Instructor Jim Mattson, an accountant and computer consultant with Bauman Associates in Eau Claire, brings to the workshops more than 15 years of experience helping small businesses develop efficient and effective accounting systems.

  • "QuickBooks Accounting Basics" starts from scratch with software setup; basic accounting tasks; and how to use accounts payable, accounts receivable and payroll functions. The workshop will run from 8:30 a.m.-noon March 7 and 14. It will be repeated on June 6 and 13.
  • "Using QuickBooks Effectively" is an advanced class for people familiar with QuickBooks software, or those who have completed "QuickBooks Accounting Basics." It focuses on security features, customization issues, and helpful tricks and reports. It will meet from 8:30 a.m.-noon March 21. This workshop will be repeated on June 20.

All sessions will meet in the computer lab in Room 210 of Schneider Hall at UW-Eau Claire.
