Using Management Reports in QuickBooks

Have you ever really tried using management reports in QuickBooks? They truly are a bit hidden, so I tagged this post under my types of hidden things. Because of this, this report grouping is typically not utilized often as a result of where it is underneath the reports tab. However, it is one you should think about using if you're an accounting firm. Moreover, it is customizable! They produce a fantastic end product to impress your client or perhaps the CPA or Tax professional. Big shout out loud to Sarah Prevost for showing me this neat trick!

It really is in the reports area. There is the tabs for standard, custom, and management. Most people go right for the conventional. Why not set your firm apart by using the management reports? As soon as you select the management reports tab, click that section to enhance the window utilizing the two default reporting options: Basic and Expanded. It is possible to duplicate either of the and create more templates for the customers. The best part is you can save the date ranges and basis when it comes to reports. And you may rename them to be specific to your client.

Using Management Reports in QuickBooks: the key is in editing the template
I found I could edit the template and also make use out from the notes section. As an example, I just worked with a customer that needed some cleanup of his records. Once the work was complete, he and I also did the ultimate review. Several items were left open to be discussed using the tax professional. This new client didn't have a CPA. He asked me for a referral. Since he could be becoming a unique customer towards the CPA and certainly will probably not have his books done right away, the notes section will become invaluable.

The ultimate product produced is depicted below. It gives a much better appearance as compared to general reports under the Standard section.

Bonus tip: My favorite analyzing report
My favorite are accountable to analyze a customer's records could be the Profit and Loss Comparison Report. I personally use this to compare files from year-to-year or month-over-month. It really is an excellent report to look for bookkeeping misapplied transactions. Of course, the best tool for this is certainly within the accountants' toolbox/briefcase, and it is the reclass tool.

Last piece of advice...
I have to say that not every single day goes by that I do not discover something or a colleague will share something they saw in QuickBooks Online. This accounting platform is such a phenomenal program and has now a lot of great benefits. If you are in desktop as they are hesitant to proceed to a cloud-based application, I encourage you to definitely give it a shot. Once you see through the "learning curve" of the different look and feel of it, I guarantee you will discover the automation and time-savings worth the monthly fee.

My firm is entirely cloud-based now. We not any longer take on desktop clients. Our amazing workflow for attorneys has helped automate a number of the tedious tasks.
