Question from Olha V.
Hi! I would like to start my own bookkeeping service to help small business owners with their bookkeeping and financial statements. Is this course right for me? Thanks!
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
The Basic Bookkeeping class covers the basics of accounting and accounting principles. Accounts, Journals, Ledgers, Worksheets, and Basic Financial Statements are covered. This is not a computer course, although there is a discussion of how computer programs (particularly Quickbooks) handle accounting transactions and the aforementioned accounting basics. For those that wish to learn how to use Quickbooks we offer a separate class "Quickbooks Online". Many students take both classes.
