Join us for one of our classes. Everyone is invited! Business owners, office assistants, tax preparers, and YOU!
We currently offer three types of classes. The next one starts on September 18, 2018. Read about them below.

Quickbooks Classes

Learn QuickBooks from the experts!

Sept 18th, 20th, 25th, and 27th at 6 pm in Midvale, Utah.

Only $250 if you register by Sept 12, 2018. (After Sept 12: $300.) Get a $50 discount when you bring a friend.

Designed for those who are new to QuickBooks, our classes walk you through the basics of tracking all your financial data through the software. The classes will be relevant regardless of which version of QuickBooks you have access to – Pro, Premier, Online, etc, and you will learn the material while navigating your own company data. (If you don’t have an existing file, we provide sample data.) Small business owners will learn how to get the best data out of their financial tracking so they can grow their business. Office assistants can enhance their skills and provide added value in the workplace. Tax preparers will learn how to assess their small business clients’ bookkeeping and make corrections as needed.

Curriculum for the upcoming class:

  • Sept 18, 6 – 7:30 pm: Session 1 – navigating Quickbooks and recording expenses
  • Sept 20, 6 – 7:30 pm: Session 2 – tracking income, sales, inventory, etc
  • Sept 25, 6 – 7:30 pm: Session 3 – reconciling and financial reporting
  • Sept 27, 6 – 7:30 pm: Bonus session – specific, personalized content for current class registrants, tailored to their industries and bookkeeping needs

Advanced Bookkeeping classes

Learn higher-level bookkeeping in this class that teaches you the deeper implications of accounting setup, how individual transactions add up to big-picture financial data, and how to correct errors in QuickBooks. Double-entry bookkeeping is not for the faint of heart! This class is for individuals who already work as bookkeepers, tax preparers already familiar with QuickBooks, and business owners.

I tried to manage my Quickbooks by myself for many years and was just not getting the result I wanted. I have found Backyard Bookkeeper to be a great fit to my business and gives me the time to spend on more productive things in my business. Thanks guys! R. H.

Mark, business owner

Susan has been great to work with. She has been very accommodating and willing to do anything to help me. When I first called Backyard Bookkeeper and talked to Susan, I felt ashamed that my books were a mess for one full year. By the end of the conversation, I felt so much better and was reassured that it was not a problem. Ultimately, Susan cleaned up my mess in a short period of time. I feel very comfortable working with Susan. Because she is prompt and has earned my trust, I also have her manage my books for two additional businesses I own.

Diann, business owner

I tried managing my QuickBooks on my own for a couple of years, and constantly ran into situations that I didn't know how to solve. Now, I have my own personal QuickBooks Superhero: Julie DeLong! She is capable of leaping over a huge mathematical tangle in a single bound, and can quickly compute complex figures in her super-genius brain, while standing on one foot and whistling "Dixie". It's all in a days work for Julie to design powerful solutions to the mightiest messes while peeling a banana and standing on her head. I particularly love that she manages my sales tax, and my complex vendor statements. Glad she found my backyard!

I've been very happy with the services provided by Backyard Bookkeeper. As a business owner, it's good to know I don't need to worry about the bookkeeping, taxes, and payroll. Jenny and Julie have always been there when I have a question, and I truly appreciate their ability to not only do the work, but to be my teachers when I have a question. I highly recommend Backyard Bookkeeper to any business owner.

Thank you Jenny at Backyard Bookkeeper for your attention to detail. I have been using Backyard Bookkeeper for quite a few years now and couldn't be happier with the service I have received.

I am thrilled with the service I have had from Julie with Backyard Bookkeeper! A recent computer crash left me with a feeling of dread. After trying to install/restore backup on my own - I encountered errors and was at a standstill. Julie was prompt to respond to my problem, arranged for a time when we could work on a resolution, and within minutes she had my data restored and had me back up and running my small business! Julie is very knowledgeable about QuickBooks and is a resource I am thrilled to have by my side when I need her! I highly recommend Backyard Bookkeeper to other business owners.

After opening my own firm, I quickly realized handling my own bookkeeping was a losing proposition - not only did not I not have sufficient knowledge, I was losing valuable time that could be better spent doing what I do best. I contacted Backyard Bookkeeper. They came to the rescue, assuming my Quickbooks mess, and quickly organized and streamlined both my internal bookkeeping, but also took over my billing. Backyard Bookkeeper is immediately responsive, and 100% competent. I am very happy with their service and highly recommend any small business give them a try - you won't regret it.

Backyard Bookkeeper has been there for me since I was by myself in my apartment trying to get my business off the ground. Mandi helped me make sure my books where clean and organized so I could focus on the other aspects of my business. Everything was nice and automated and Mandi acted like she was a member of my team. It was great. Thank you for everything!

I contacted Julie DeLong on two separate occasions for help with some bookkeeping issues that I was having. Julie responded immediately and helped me solve my problems. She understood every issue that I was having and gave me clear, concise resolutions for each. Having her as a resource has made my job so much easier! I highly recommend her and am so grateful to have her to turn to when I have a problem!
