Hello, and Welcome to QuickBooks Tutorial Blog

How QuickBooks Can Help You So glad to have you here!

My name is Eugénie Marie Nugent and I am an avid QuickBooks user and supporter.  QuickBooks is one software that, when used accurately, can truly streamline a person or company’s record keeping and help to manage the day to day financial transactions more efficiently.   It is  available on all platforms – Windows, Mac, and Online and is built to work seamlessly with many third party applications.  All of the above, topped with its many other functionalities, make QuickBooks the preferred accounting and bookkeeping software today by many business owners and individuals alike.

How QuickBooks Can Help You



  • QuickBooks will allow you to keep track of your spending (expenses) and your receipts (income) and provide you with valuable reports that shows you where you are financially, at any given time.
  • It allows you to compare your current period financial operations with a past period, giving you snapshots of what you have been doing, so you can make improvement where you do need improvement.
  • QuickBooks get your numbers computed in an organized fashion so your accountant or tax preparer can file your taxes.

Customized QuickBooks Software for Specific Business Types

Several Editions of QuickBooks were developed to accommodate what you need to get done in your type of business. The Editions are:

QuickBooks is such a simple software to understand and use that its users do not necessarily need to have extensive accounting knowledge to use it; however, basic knowledge of accounting is necessary in order to know what goes where and why. Since QuickBooks is a bookkeeping and accounting software, I have decided to include a bit of bookkeeping as a part of our discussion on this blog.

I have designed a QuickBooks Tutorial geared towards teaching all that I know and am still learning about QuickBooks and have decided to create this blog so I can actually have conversations with like-minded QuickBooks users who are seeking more information as well as looking to share what they know, and have continued dialogue.

Please feel free to join in the conversation and share your thoughts and knowledge.  I welcome and appreciate your input.

Greetings from California! I’m bored to death at work so
I decided to browse your website on my iphone during
lunch break. I love the knowledge you present
here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home.
I’m shocked at how quick your blog loaded on my cell phone ..

I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, excellent blog!

Hi Marie, you have so much useful info here, thanks! I am looking for an Online payroll tutorial, do you have it on here? If not, do you plan on having one? Will be so helpful.

Thanks Marie!

Hi Jack, I’m in the process of including a payroll tutorial, and it will be available pretty soon. In the meantime, here is a QuickBooks Online payroll tutorial that pretty much sums it up: http://quickbooks.intuit.com/tutorials/setup-payroll/

Very informative and detailed Marie! Do you plan on extending the tutorial portion for the Enterprise edition? I know I’ll probably move online in the future as it seems to be where everyone is headed, but I want to continue using the Enterprise edition for as long as I can. It’s just allowing me to do so much more.

Thank you for this awesome tutorial!

Hi Jane, thank you! QuickBooks Enterprise was definitely on my radar, but I have noticed that a lot has been changing with it, in favor of QuickBooks Online, and so I’ll keep it on the back burner for now. No need in making a tutorial for something that is becoming obsolete. I agree, it’s a really great edition, but like almost everything these day, Online (in the cloud) is taking over.

Hi Amy, happy you are finding this tutorial useful! That’s the very reason I started this tutorial, to help make navigating QuickBooks so much easier. Thanks for the high five! And thanks for stopping by :)

This tutorial could not be more relevant! I have been trying to delete my company from QuickBooks Online and couldn’t figure out the way to. But thanks to you, I just did. So grateful!


13 Marie November 17, 2016 at 1:15 pm

Hi Jason, happy I was able to help! This website was created for the sole purpose of helping new QB users navigate it, and do so more efficiently. All the very best!

Wow! Thank you for this well-needed tutorial Marie. There are other tutorials around but non as inclusive as this one. I have a Mac computer and had to get the Mac version, and it is a bit different from the windows version I use to use. Thank you, really appreciate!

BTW Marie, you should put a donate button on here,cause this is really helpful and I’m sure time consuming to put up for us. I would definitely have donated today. Think about it!


15 Marie November 17, 2016 at 1:15 pm

Hey Sam, thank you! Happy to help! Aaaaaw, you’re so kind. I’ll think about it. All the very best!

I looooove QuickBooks!!! Can you tell? Ever since I was introduced to it back in 08 I’ve been hooked. Prior to QuickBooks everything was out of order, and being the accounting novice that I am, QuickBooks was definitely the answer.

BTW Your step by step QuickBooks tutorial has helped me immensely. Had to give you credit. Thank you!


19 Marie April 11, 2018 at 12:10 am

That makes two of us Janice! Been using it since 2002 and it has improved a great deal. For all it does, what’s not to like? Right? QuickBooks really does simplify bookkeeping and accounting. Happy you found value here! Thank you!
