“QuickBooks Accounting for the Small Farm” meets from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Oct. 7 and 8 at the WNC Fallon campus, 160 Campus Way. Cost is $85 when registering before Sept. 30 and $95 after Sept. 30. Lunch is included. Space is limited, and early enrollment is encouraged.
Participants will learn to set up and use QuickBooks software to keep track of farm finances, and generate reports and data for business planning and farm management. QuickBooks software will be used actively during the workshop, with time for questions and answers throughout, in an interactive learning environment. A QuickBooks handbook will be provided, and attendees will have the option of purchasing the software at a discounted price.
The workshop will be led by Marie Gibson, advanced QuickBooks ProAdvisor, university instructor, and member of Intuit’s National Speaker/Writer Network. She brings more than 25 years of business experience, and is a professional educator, speaker and author. Gibson comes from a ranching family in Northern California, and holds degrees in Animal Science, Agricultural Economics and Business Administration.
“There are multiple reasons why farmers should use computerized record keeping,” Gibson said. “With records and reports at their fingertips, QuickBooks users can make management decisions without guessing about income or loss.”
