Bookkeeping is one of the most important tasks a business owner needs to perform, although tedious it is very necessary.

Bookkeeping is one of the most important tasks a business owner needs to perform, although tedious it is very necessary. Needless to say, if bookkeeping is done incorrectly or skipped all together it can cost a business owner thousands of dollars per year and can even result in tax penalties which is an additional cost. To save money from making bookkeeping mistakes business owners can always hire an accountant, however affording an accountant may not be a plausible option. Which is why we propose offering a one week QuickBooks Online For Business Owners course at the RISE Education Center.

QuickBooks Online is a powerful program that helps businesses owners automate the majority of their accounting while helping them to avoid costly calculating errors, without having to pay an accountant.

Small businesses are huge contributors to the American Samoan economy, they create jobs and bring growth and innovation. With the vital role that small businesses and small business owners play in our economic growth, it’s imperative that we give them the education they need to run their businesses as efficiently as possible.

It’s no secret that finances are the number one cause of stress for business owners. By offering a one week course on QuickBooks Online it will help improve business owners financial literacy and decrease stress which we believe will transform their lives tremendously.
