The QuickBooks Encyclopedia

Do more with QuickBooks by knowing exactly what each feature is and does. 
The QuickBooks Encyclopedia is designed for everyone -- those who are brand new to QuickBooks as well as those in need of a quick reference.




Note that accounting definitions, while precise, are not universally applicable in all cases. How and when to apply these concepts entirely depends on the context. As such, it's always wise to work with your accountant if you're going beyond the basics.
