What a way to kick off Technology Tuesday for October 2019! This particular Technology Tuesday was met with great anticipation leading up to the presentation; and it didn’t disappoint!
Out Of The Box Technology Executive V.P. of Business Development & Compliance, Dawn Brolin, delivered endless insight. Her pedigree as a Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE) & Certified Public Accountant (CPA) enabled her to deliver technical and contextual insight in a manner attendees were able to understand, and relate to the topic presented. It also enabled the presentation’s smooth, methodical flow of presenting the ABCs of Fraud Detection & Prevention.
Tech Tuesdays is a complimentary webinar series featuring services and products we provide, here at Out of the Box Technology. We have a collection of webinars also featuring partners who provide third-party applications/add-ons for QuickBooks products – whether for QuickBooks Desktop or QuickBooks Online.
We are so excited to have been made a part of this, enabling us to provide a more diverse content offering.
I got the opportunity to view past Tech Tuesdays, which make me especially excited to attend the Quarterly Updates for Recur360 – next week. Sit back and enjoy this look back on two I got to view, perhaps providing a glimpse of what you can expect with Tech Tuesdays – moving forward.

As businesses try to keep up with its effects, more states are enacting new legislation coinciding with new allowances to collect sales tax from sellers who conduct business in their state – without a physical presence therein. As of this writing, there is a host of states still deliberating over enacting specific legislation affecting marketplaces.
From our friends at Avalara: The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance announced that due to the South Dakota v. Wayfair Supreme Court ruling last year, an existing provision in New York Sales Tax Lawdefining a sales tax vendor became immediately effective. Any business within this definition making taxable sales into the state is required to be registered as a New York State vendor and to collect & remit sales tax. This can impact your clients and they should know.
The Projects feature in QuickBooks Online Plus is not a full-blown project management software. Intuit introduced it more for small business owners who want to gain deeper financial insight on the work they do. You could call it “job costing light.”

Whether your accounting tasks are done on a single PC or you have multiple users working on different screens, it’s critical you make use of all that QuickBooks offers in terms of internal controls to tighten data security.
QuickBooks Desktop has progressively responded to evolving threats. It has been working on compatibility with multiple Antivirus solutions.

Business, today, is more connected and spread out than ever before. Many companies have employees or contractors that may work in another building, city, state, maybe even another country. More often than ever, businesses are bridging these physical gaps with the virtual connections of the cloud. While you may be working with people hundreds or thousands of miles away, your work can all take place in one virtual office space on a cloud server.
