Im still researchign quickbooks these days, and may go with online version, but havent decided yet. My question for this post relates to how you pay, track and file day to day expenses like fuel, drinks, trimmer line, gas, etc. I'm going to set up a dedicated checking account for the buisness, along with a debit card. How do yall typically pay for day to day expenses as I llisted above? Hand written check, debit card, or cash? If cash, im assuming a Petty Cash account is necessary to ensure everything is tracked properly in quickbooks. Once the item is paid for, do you have an excel spreadsheet or day planner or something to keep track of each purchase. Do you do anything special with the receipts? Any help would be appreciated. In the near future we are going to a CPA to have our taxes done for last year, and Im going to have him/her assist me with setting up a quickbooks account as well. Hoping 2013 will be much more organized.
