QuickBooks and Bookkeeping News
We suggest cleaning up your various lists on a regular basis. We found an article that offers a free utility program to do a Bulk Inactivation of QuickBooks Customers. Inactivating customers one at a time in QuickBooks can be time consuming. This utility allows you to maintain customer details, while hiding those one-time or old customer names from your list in a few easy steps.
Custom Fields are underutilized and very useful in QuickBooks. Once a custom field is added, it can be used on forms and in reports. This is a great tool for tracking referral sources, spouse’s names, birth dates, shipping and inventory details, etc. and is found in Pro, Premier and Enterprise versions.
Don’t forget that we offer a variety of QuickBooks classes. Check out our website under Training, and be sure to pass the word along to friends and colleagues looking to get more confident in using QuickBooks.
Seacoast Accountability is now offering affordable QuickBooks classes! Email us at info@SeacoastAccountability.com, or call us at (603) 834-1271, for further details.

If you file more than 250 W-2 forms for 2013, be sure that you have properly reported Employer Sponsored Health Care Coverage on your W-2 forms.
Form W-2 and W-3 Changes for 2013
Be sure that you are using the latest I-9 Form, revised 3/8/13. Previous versions will no longer be accepted and employers are required to complete and retain this form for each employee hired in the US.
Enable online access to employee pay stubs and W-2 forms, using View My Paycheck, free with any active QuickBooks payroll subscription.
Avoid the headaches-Seacoast Accountability payroll services start at $100 per month.

Small Business News
We have been proud to work with several companies that are experiencing growing pains, despite the bleak economic outlook lately. Several of them have not taken the time to document their processes. No matter how small you are, once you find something that works-Document Your Business Process-so you, or a future employee, will not have to recreate the wheel. Be sure to periodically review and update these processes as technology and efficiencies improve.
