Bookkeeping for dummies?
posted by Gilbert to Work & Money (3 answers total)
I'm searching for a resource to teach me the basics of double entry bookkeeping. The sources I've found so far tend to get into hardcore accounting pretty quickly, leaving me in the weeds. I would like to be able to handle payroll, balance sheets, sales, and some purchasing, without having to discuss larger issues like depreciation, GAAP, or too much jargon. The company has already contracted with an accountant, but they just need someone to keep things straight until tax time. Is there a website? A book? Should I just bother the accountant for an hour or two?
