Pellissippi State offers QuickBooks workshop for small-business owners

posted in: BCS | 0

Keeping track of finances can be a real headache for small-business owners, but the fix may be fairly simple and painless: QuickBooks.

Debi Bolton of Pellissippi State Community College says QuickBooks software enables businesspeople to quickly find what they need when they need it, including money coming in and money going out of the business. Bolton is manager of the Computer Training Institute for the college’s Business and Community Services Division.

Pellissippi State is joining forces with the Tennessee Small Business Development Center to offer a $99 Introduction to QuickBooks workshop four times this fall: Sept. 14; Oct. 19, Nov. 16 and Dec. 7. The workshop takes place at the TSBDC office, located at the Knoxville Area Chamber Partnership, 17 Market Square. Since class size is limited, pre-registration is required.

The 3.5-hour workshop focuses on setting up business finances using QuickBooks Pro. The class covers company setup, chart of accounts creation, invoicing, bill payment, check writing, customer and vendor management, report generation, and preferences.

Gabe Beck, CPA and QuickBooks instructor, uses systematic instructions, making the material easy to understand.

To register or find out more, go to or call Debi Bolton at (865) 539-7008.

Pellissippi State administers the Knoxville branch of the TSBDC, whose mission is to provide free counseling and training for those interested in starting or improving a small business. The TSBDC serves 16 counties in East Tennessee.
