News Flash – 3-user Limit for QuickBooks Pro 2011

We love QuickBooks 2011, but one of the new features makes no sense at all.  QuickBooks Pro 2011 now has a new 3-users limit, down from 5-users in previous versions.  QuickBooks Premier 2011 still allows 5-users , and you can mix and match Pro and Premier (though those using Pro won't have access to the features only found in Premier).

So, if you currently have more then 3-users in QuickBooks Pro you might want to think long and hard before upgrading to 2011.

News Flash – How will Veteran’s Day (Thursday, November 11, 2010) affect my payroll tax payments and direct deposit in QuickBooks Payroll?

How will Veterans Day (Thursday, November 11, 2010) affect my payroll tax payments and direct deposit?

To allow for the Veterans Day holiday, you might need to send payroll a day earlier than usual. Doing so will help you to comply with the Fair Labor Standards Act and ensure timely payroll tax payments.

If your normal paycheck date is on 11/11/10, you should:

  1. Change your paycheck date for your direct deposit employees to Wednesday, 11/10/10.
  2. Send your payroll by 5 p.m. Pacific Time on Monday, 11/8/10.

If your paycheck date is immediately before or after Veterans Day, consult the table that follows to find out when to send your payroll and when your account will be debited.

If you date your paychecks for… Send payroll by 5:00 PM Pacific Time on… Your account will be debited on*… Employees get paid on (Direct Deposit only)…
Wednesday, 11/10 Monday, 11/8 Tuesday, 11/9 Wednesday, 11/10
Thursday, 11/11 (see message above)
Friday, 11/12 Tuesday, 11/9 Wednesday, 11/10 Friday, 11/12
Monday, 11/15 Wednesday, 11/10 Friday, 11/12 Monday, 11/15

*Accounts are typically debited before regular banking hours, so you should make sure you have funds in your account to cover the payroll onthe day before the actual debit occurs.

How to Map your Non-Inventory Items in QuickBooks Point of Sale

Would you mind helping with one more item? Our inventory items are mapped to the following accounts:

COGS = COGS Hard Goods or Soft Goods
Income = Pro Shop Income Hard Goods or Soft Goods
Asset = Pro Shop Inventory

Our non inventory items are mapped to the following accounts:

COGS = Purchases – Resale
Income = Pro Shop Income Hard Goods or Soft Goods
Asset = Purchases – Resale

Are these correct?  I'm confident the inventory items are right, I'm not sure the non inventory items are right.

Purchases – Resale is the default QuickBooks POS account for non-inventory items.  You can change it to your COGS Hard Goods or Soft Goods or some other COGS account, if you like.  However, for non-inventory items you do want both your COGS and Asset accounts to be mapped to a COGS account. 

Remember, you don’t track inventory for non-inventory items, so if you use an inventory account for the Asset account these purchases would sit in inventory forever and never be expensed.  Using a COGS account for your Asset account means they'll be expensed when you purchase them instead of sitting in your Inventory account.
