Un-registering my copy of Quickbooks 2012 so I can sell it.

I have a copy of Quickbooks 2012 for Mac that I just put up for sale on ebay. (The program just wasn't for me.) I am getting a number of inquiries from interested bidders about the transfer of the license of the software. I do not recall if I ever officially registered the software after i installed it or not. I played around with it for a little bit and decided it wasn't for me. I uninstalled the software and it has sat in a box until I put it up today. How do I go about ensuring that the software and license have my info removed so that the winning bidder can install it on their computer with little to no hassle? The Intuit/Quickbooks website offers a lot of contradictory information. Much thanks.

Moonlighting (starting business) as an Accountant - Still in school

I am still in school and doing pretty well... close to 4.0 and have two audit internships under my belt. Big 4 is likely an option as are several other Fortune 500 companies in the area and I have connections in the Federal government that can get me a job there. BUT.... I don't really want to be involved in all of that. I am doing internal audit in a company right now and even though I have the ability to work 60-70 hour weeks the question is "Do I want to be doing this on a regular basis for the next 35 years?" and the answer is "No". I want to have a life outside of work, spend time with my (future) family, and...Start an Accounting business. [more inside]

Is my stock in this company worth a thing? Company law advice please!

Hi all, I own one third (i.e. approx. 33.3%) of a UK company for which I am also a director. The remainder of the company belongs to a single shareholder. I'm worried that the financial structure of this company means that the company could effectively be 'sold' to a third party without me getting a cent. [more inside]

Need a cloud based invoicing / accounting program that is not Quickbooks

Invoicing & accounting software / methods for freelance & small biz

I'm currently looking at adopting Freshbooks or Kashoo, and would be interested in experiences with either, or other recommendations. Context: I'm a few years into freelancing (across a few different industries) and I'm working on improving my accounting, with the goals of easier tax time, smoother day-to-day operations, and better information about cashflow and budgeting. Right now I use Toggl for time tracking, and Mint for expense tracking and budgeting; I like Toggl but I'm not married to it, and Mint is starting to drive me absolutely nuts. I do invoicing and bookkeeping manually. Also welcome would be general tips on bookkeeping and accounting for small businesses / freelancers. I'm on a Mac, in Canada.

Bookkeeping business--can I make a living?

Accounting degree, experienced bookkeeper working for other folks, already know Quickbooks, etc. A small amount of capital ($5-6k) and a current part-time job that pays just enough to cover my expenses, but it's only going to last another year or so. I could go get another bookkeeping job, but I'm sick of making next to nothing and having next to no control over my work. How can I make myself viable as a business? [more inside]

What does the phrase "accounting logic" mean, particularly as used in the new book Monoculture?

I'm reading the book Monoculture by FS Michaels, which describes how what the author calls "the economic story," which she sees as dominant in our culture and as having replaced earlier dominant stories rooted in religion and science, is shaping people's work, communities, education, and relationships. In the book, Michaels talks about how "as the economic story spreads to government, a language based on economics develops along with a new way of thinking and reasoning about what goes on in government -- a kind of accounting logic. That accounting logic makes two assumptions: first, that anything and everything your government does can be assessed in terms of what value is added, and second, that the value added can be linked to how much money is spent on the activity in the first place." Etc. My question is: in this context, what does the phrase "accounting logic" mean? [more inside]

Just beginning my journey into the wonderful world of accountancy, and I'm lost already.

Hello everyone! Once again I am turning to AskMeFi for advice. The gist of it is: I'm a recent UK-based graduate in a non-finance discipline, and decided to make the move into finance and accounting. So far I have completed the three foundation modules of ACCA International, and am about to start studying for the upcoming F4 exam... and I've started to look for relevant jobs. Of course, the problem is experience (lack of). I've never had a direct finance job, and most positions (including entry-level ones [don't get me wrong; I know it's a long road and I'm barely at the start!]) seem to demand at least 2 years' experience. So, what to do? [more inside]
