This seminar includes a step-by-step demonstration in setting up a company within QuickBooks.  Options screens that appear during the company set-up will be explained.  Presenter Elizabeth Santaus will cover company-wide versus user preferences and basic software navigation so you can start using QuickBooks right away.  Participants are welcome to have a laptop with QuickBooks loaded so they can follow along with the presenter.
