What do you use to keep theatre books? We have a book keeper who has her own but it takes a long time. We get each month almost 30 days late.

Quickbooks Pro
It is versatile enough to handle almost any small business with employees. Once it is set up payroll is very easy to do . There are usually regonal seminars conducted for basic instruction in Quckbooks. The web site for QuickBooks is http://quickbooks.intuit.com/qbcom/jhtml/home.jhtml

I am using Peachtree software. I works fine for me including payroll. However, it probably doesn't matter which software you use as long as you get comfortable with it and you input your numbers into it ASAP rather than waiting for someone else to do it. I usually post receipts daily right after I finish calling the numbers in. Enter your bills as you get them and you can always monitor your situation at that moment rather than waiting around a couple of weeks for someone else to get you the information that you could have yourself right away.

Ky uses QuickBooks. It's not perfect for a theatre, but it's pretty close. It's not like we have any accounts receivable. Ky does all the bookkeeping and our accountant reviews it with him.

Ky would be a good recourse to tell you what categories he uses. Communicate with him about it via private email.

Mike, get QuickBooks Pro, we have a direct export that you can use, once setup you can import your theatre information directly from the POS.

I use QuickBooks Pro.

I make the tickets "items" and the movies "customers". Works pretty well.

Howard, you don't really need to quote somebody in the same thread. We know what kicked off the discussion. And please learn to use the edit function.

You can get the 2002 version on ebay of quickbooks pro on ebay for like $25.00. Mike have you decided the best version to keep your books. Inquiring minds would like to know!!!!

I don't do my own books. I use QuickBooks Pro for my checkbook. My accountant uses Peachtree. I don't even think they are compatible. Because of that, I may be switching to Peachtree and save some duplication and $$ in the long run.

Like Large said, we use Quickbooks Pro. It works pretty well. I'd use whatever your accountant recommends because being compatible with them means you can send them files rather than reports which will ultimately save you time and $$ like Burney Falls said. RTS has a way to export deposit data from RTS and into Quickbooks but I haven't played around with that.

In 1979 I had my first real biz with employees. I went to the Post Office and got all the payroll forms and did their checks. 20 employees. 3 months later I got to a acvcountant and he said "what have you been doing with the taxes you with hold?" That was a good question and it was simply left in the check book where I used it like cash so I was off on a 5 year tour with the IRS. I learned that I was ng at books so I let the acct do them. Now I have a bunch of bizes and while on some we use QB Pro I still have the major portion at the acct. Am I ready to switch over/ Not yet. Stability can be a very good thing. Plus: they're not very expensive!
