On four successive Thursdays in February, beginning on February 4, West Center will offer free workshops on how to use QuickBooks for your business. Since its launch back in the 1990s, QuickBooks has become the leader in financial management software. Used both by small businesses and accounting professionals, QB now has a commanding lead in the market.

A great program to use once you’re familiar with it, QB can, however, be daunting for new users. And, there are significant differences between the desktop and online versions. Instructor Rebecca Lehman will lead all four sessions focusing on the desktop version of the software. Rebecca has over 25 years of accounting experience and runs her own business, Accounting Advantage. She has extensive experience working with many different business models from construction, manufacturing, retail, restaurants, financial institutes, service industry and non-profit corporations. Well-versed in several accounting software programs, Rebecca prefers QuickBooks over all, making her the ideal instructor!
