Bookkeeping Essentials for Launching Your Business

January 16 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm EST

The foundation of a solid business starts with bookkeeping.

It is a crucial step that lets you monitor the growth of your business, build financial statements, keep track of deductible expenses, prepare tax returns, and legitimize your filings. But it is often overlooked. Even when outsourcing your bookkeeping operations, you should know the fundamentals.

Gain a better understanding of what bookkeeping is, the roles of Bookkeepers vs. Accountants, the elements of setting up your bookkeeping from getting your business number to GST/QST, to filing your taxes, and the pros and cons of the top 3 software. Understanding these steps will give you the confidence to know you’ve covered your bases.
