This will be a panel presentation, facilitated by HR Biz.

Panelists are Sharon Peterson, Liz Hickman and Lynn Talbott of HR Biz and CPA Lynn Davis of Wilkins Crews & Associates. QuickBooks Online has come a long way and is the perfect choice for start-ups. We will begin with a presentation of the recent updates in QBO and how much more functional it is than the desktop version. Attendees are encouraged to bring questions for the panel to answer, but we will also cover: 1. Which QuickBooks is right for you?, 2. What’s the difference between QB Online and QB Desktop? and 3. How do I get started with QBO?

We will give you access to a sample QBO file and also offer discount codes for integrated apps and for QBO itself.
