Hey, we have been having a strange problem with our Quickbooks POS ver 13 multi user installation in a club setup (4 machines). Customers have to recharge their accounts before ordering and the big problem we have is discrepancies between current and available balances. However,the sale transactions are posted in real time but the balances take seem time to synchronize(happens  to a random member account irregularly ) and we have changed the LAN routers and cabling and the problem is still persisting. The charge to account is posted after some delays of a few hours. We have integrated the solution to Quickbooks premier for financial exchange. Our company file is 500MB big and the connectivity tool doesn't post any errors. The environment is available for remote access any time. Any pointers?

Which industries use the "end of period" and "beginning of period" options in the PMT, FV, PV and other financial functions.
When I've taken out a personal loan at the bank, I was never asked "Would you like to pay at the end of the month? or would you like to pay at the beginning of the month?"

Which types of transactions?  Is it non-USA entities?  Is it real estate? Asset-based loans?
Can anyone point to an article, blog post, or video that discusses who uses the last option in these financial functions.

A while ago, I could enter a bill that had to be paid into quicken and then when it does the update with the bank, it would push that payment to the bank's bill pay system. If it was a new payee, I'd have entered the mailing info, account number all in quicken and quicken would push that all to the bank's bill pay system.

Then my bank changed things and now when I enter a bill into quicken, it doesn't go anywhere. I have to go to the bank's website, log in and enter the payment in their website to get them to generate a check.

That extra step of entering it in quicken and then enter it in the website worked... till now, when I accidentally set up a payment of $6,000 going to company B which was right below company A in the list on the website and company A was supposed to get the money. Then before the payment date, looking on the website / activity for company A, I see I didn't set up the payment!? i coiuld have sworn I did! So I set up the payment for $6,000 to company A.

Now company A AND B got the same amount, my overdraft kicked in and I have $60 in fees.

Anyone know if banks still let quicken pay bills through quicken? What is that called where quicken lets you do that? I guess the bank has to pay quicken some money to let them interface with quicken?

The bank won't do anything about reimbursing these fees so we're going to another bank that offers the quicken bill pay interface.

But which ones?

Problem with Turbo Tax copying data from Quick Books 2016. It is too late now but I need to solve this problem. I keep all my business details in QuickBooks 2016 and need to have Turbo Tax to pull the data over at the end of the year. This is the first year it could now. Keep getting an error "We are not able to access this company file because we cannot login to the file automatically. If the file is password-protected, enter the password in the password window, otherwise open company file in QuickBooks and try again." I have done all that but still have error.
Any help please. Thank you.

Windows 10. Sage 50 Accounts Professional 2017, perpetual license. I'm out of the first year free tech support. I've only ever upgraded every 3 or 4 years because I'm a one man band but I do need the sales and purchase order processing functions. Moving to Sage Cloud including sales and purchase order processing is too expensive. I've been using previous versions of this for 20 years. It's been nagging me to upgrade for a month or more. I finally accepted it and would have stopped if it had asked for payment, but it didn't so I continued to the end. Everything seemed fine until I tried to print a purchase order. I discovered that ALL the layouts had disappeared. I can print invoices because one suitable layout is still there. But only one. I checked sales order printing and found ALL of these layout are gone too. So I installed the program on another machine. So far it has NOT asked me to upgrade. I've exported the 2 layouts I want to a USB stick but can't figure out how to import them to the old machine's Sage. How can this be done please? This is my preferred solution. Plan B would be to see if I can roll it back to before the upgrade. Plan C would be to uninstall Sage and reinstall it but not upgrade when requested to do so. By the way, during the upgrade I recall it telling me I needed a 1.8MHz PC and this  was a 1.3MHz. Could that be the cause? I'm fairly sure I got this message 18 months ago when I upgraded to the 2017 version but it worked fine.

Interesting article. I think cryptocurrency and especially bitcoin is our future. I use Cubits wallet. In addition to this, Cubits has flexible merchants that accept Bitcoins and work with other financial providers like credit card companies, OK Pay and Rapid Transfer. More interesting info you can find at https://www.valleygames.ca/bitcoin-casino-your-guide-to-the-best-bitcoin-options-for-gambling/  Now I play in bitcoin online casino.

I have a client running a Server 2012 STD server as domain controller and remote desktop server.   On that same server, they have Sage 50 US installed and hosting 4 Sage company files accessible via the local network workstations and through remote desktop services.    We now have a need to isolate one of these company files.   My thought is simply to install another 2012 or 2016 Standard server and to install Sage 50 on that box for that single company.   I'm assuming local workstations could still access that file through a different drive mapping.   Is that correct?   Would I need all new RDP licensing to keep users of this lone company ONLY on this new server when accessing it remotely?

Any other solutions anyone can think of?

Hello Experts,

I am trying to put together a Minute Book for my small corporation and am I correct in thinking that all of the below are pre-made templates that I can download somewhere and just fill them in?

1.      Corporate company ownership structure (showing upstream parent company/companies, Trusts and personal shareholders)
2.      Shareholder’s Register/Ledger (current and up-to-date)
3.      Share Certificate(s) (of majority shareholder(s))
4.      Shareholder agreement (for companies with two or more shareholders)
5.      Any other issued Articles (e.g. Articles of Amendment, Amalgamation, etc.)
6.      Director’s Register


If applicable, do they need to be specific to my province, which is Ontario where I register my corporation?

Install BOTH TurboTax2017-Premier  AND TurboTax2017-Business
Do I want to install Premier first followed by Business?  Last year (2016) i installed them separately and it seemed to make a difference.   Last year I installed Business FIRST and then Premier and there were some issues with the Premier seeing and importing the Business content to my Premier return.
Thanks.

Hi, I’m sure many of you are probably sick of answering this question, so apologies in advance.

I’ve been following (not trading) BitCoin for the last year. A few friends etc have invested in it, etc.

I have a few questions:

01 - I know this is hard to call, but I’m sure I’m too late to the BitCoin game, BUT are all crypto currencies the same in this regard or are some only worth very small now but could potentially explode like BitCoin?

02 - How do different things influence different crypto currencies, or are they all influenced by the same thing?

I am trying hard to find a way to automate some calculations on a credit card merchant statement. But I must be 100% within the letter and the intent of the rules which define PCI compliance.

Writing a Java app to run on all platforms was a great suggestion to "pre-process" the data, redacting private data, before upload to my site for further processing. But, I wonder, why not do ALL the processing via a downloadable Java App?

Is that a guarantee that I am 100% PCI compliant?

The problem will be when it fails a user and they need it debugged...I would need that PDF file sent to me for debugging. BUT, isn't that a much safer route to take than putting it on a website?

I would certainly have a high security bar to maintain regarding how I handle my PC, and maybe the methodology I use when choosing a password for that email account. But NOT having a website where any Credit Card info resides seems like a smarter way to go.

So, I am now imaging a simple website, probably WordPress. I would post a current version of the Java App for download and explanation of what it does, etc.

Users could download it and privately process their merchant account report on their own PC's. In the LIKELY event they have an unsupported report format, they could email me their full report. (Redacting private data from a PDF itself seems like a pretty high bar for users to handle)

On receipt of the PDF, I would redact all private data for that statement, and delete all un-redacted…

Our business owner needs to upgrade his Quickbooks Enterprise Edition but is not willing to purchase a subscription. How long has Enterprise Edition been subscription only?  If we can find a stand-alone 2015 or 2016 version, that will work for our needs.

I had some dual pane windows installed on my balcony that have improved my home's energy efficiency during both the winter and the summer. Now I don't need to heat my home as much during the winter or cool my house as much during the summer.

This installation and materials cost $3,100.

I have been told that I might be eligible to write this cost off in my taxes or to gain a tax credit of around $250.00.

How can I go about claiming this tax credit or deduction?
