Quickbooks Online for Real Estate Consulting

In real estate, as with any other business, keeping accurate accounting records is crucial.  Yes, it is important to keep the IRS happy but more importantly, keeping accurate records allows you to more accurately gauge the overall heath of your business.  Without accurate accounting you are flying blind.

If you are looking for help setting up your accounting software, or are needing some extra assistance in dealing with certain transactions, I am offering two different types of consulting services to get you fully up to speed managing your real estate business using Quickbooks Online.
