The employees section of QuickBooks is useful, but it involves more depth than is necessary for this basic tutorial. Many companies use other software packages for payroll purposes. For these reasons, we are going to skip forward to learning about the basic features of QuickBooks found under the “Banking” tab on the top ribbon of the QuickBooks screen. This lesson will be broken down into three topics. Topic 1 will discuss writing checks. Topic 2 will focus on making deposits and transferring funds. Topic 3 will explain the basics about the bank reconciliation process.
