RELEASED: Oct. 5, 2010

EAU CLAIRE — The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Small Business Development Center and Continuing Education will offer hands-on workshops to teach practical tips and techniques for using QuickBooks 2010 software for small businesses.

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.

The following workshops, to be held in Room 210 of Schneider Hall at UW-Eau Claire, will be offered:

  • "QuickBooks Accounting Basics," Oct. 13 and 20, 8:30 a.m.-noon. This workshop starts from scratch with software setup; basic accounting tasks; and the use of accounts payable, accounts receivable and payroll functions. The workshop will run from 8:30 a.m.-noon Oct. 13 and 20.
  • "Using QuickBooks Effectively," Oct. 27, 8:30 a.m.-noon. This workshop 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.

Space is limited, so early registration is recommended. Per person workshop fees are $200 for "QuickBooks Accounting Basics" (two morning sessions) and $100 for "Using QuickBooks Effectively." A 10 percent discount will be given to those who register for both workshops at the same time ($270 total).
