Why am I Having QuickBooks Performance Issues? [SOLVED]

Is Using the Same QuickBooks Data File for Long Time Causing My Performance Issues?

There’s more than one approach to how long you use the same QuickBooks company file. You can create a new file each fiscal year, or whenever you upgrade QuickBooks Desktop. Other users prefer using the same file as long as possible. Which approach works best depends on your preferences, and the way your business uses QuickBooks. While entering a lower volume of transactions into QuickBooks helps you use the same file longer, there are possible situations where you need a new QuickBooks data file.

These days, some of us find ourselves updating multiple calendars. There's the Outlook calendar or other web-based solution for scheduling and task management. Or, maybe a smartphone app to track a "to-do" on the road with a paper calendar as backup. But where do you keep track of your everyday financial tasks? Including these in your scheduling calendars and/or task lists will make for very crowded screens, not to mention how inconvenient it can be to keep switching between applications. Consider adding one more tracking tool: the QuickBooks Calendar.

The Beginner’s Guide to Sales Tax in QuickBooks

A variety of businesses must collect sales tax as part of their business operations, remitting those funds to the appropriate government agency on a predetermined schedule. The process of correctly collecting, recording, and paying these sales tax liabilities can be somewhat daunting at first, but QuickBooks has some tools built in that can help this go more smoothly.

Managing Custom Fields in QuickBooks Desktop

Sometimes, you find that your business needs to keep track of more information about items, customers, vendors, or employees than QuickBooks has available fields for. Not everyone needs the same information, so it makes sense to be able to track what’s important to you. For situations like this, there’s a solution in the form of custom fields. These are fields that you can add to several of your lists, specifying what they’re for, and what type of data they can hold. You can even choose whether they’ll be required when creating a list element or a transaction.
