Settings you can edit
Here's a quick overview of the settings and features you can adjust.
Update your company name, address, and internal tax info here. This is also where you set your industry and the kind of business you run (sole proprietorship, nonprofit, etc).
Here's where you can monitor how many users, classes, accounts, and other items you have in your company.
Customize your sales forms, set payment terms, and decide what info shows up on forms for customers. This is also where you turn on features like progress invoicing.
Decide what expense info you want to track.
This is where you turn on advanced features in QuickBooks. Not all are on by default. For example, you can turn on categories to track products and services a certain way. This is also where you set the beginning and end of your business's fiscal year. If your company deals with multiple currencies, you can also turn on that feature here.
