Thank You For Subscribing

I just had to write a thank you note to all my loyal subscribers. Thank you so much for subscribing to Accounting for Everyone. Your comments have been fantastic, and the Facebook recommendations have also been overwhelming. Please do continue to recommend this course as I know it is helping a lot of people understand something that is core to the success of any business.

As global communication and information increases, so it empowers people to take action. This in turn not only drives economies, but gives people the responsibility needed to ensure their lives are, at the very least, interesting. By that I mean, running your own business or taking control of a particular area of a business. Of course, running a business does not necessarily make you immediately happy, but what it does do is give you the tools (and money) to achieve that end more easily.

I would like to find out what proportion of subscribers and visitors to this site are in business already, thinking of starting a business, wanting to help a friend, improving their career prospects, or are simply fascinated by double-entry. So please add your vote to the poll on the right (you can pick more than one answer if it applies). You can also see the results for yourself too.

Thanks again.

Hi Quentin.

Arch Hill here. Loved the course! Close to finishing and I would like more information about the exam. Level 1 or something like that? I’ve emailed twice and received a reply to the first email and then no replies afterward. Could I call someone?

Or am I misinformed?

Thanks.

    Hi Arch, we are working on an online exam for this, but have not quite finished it yet. It is still some months away. Although my course covers elements from all 3 levels of typical bookkeeping exams, it should get you past level 1 with ease.

Dear Quentin,

Like so many of the other posts, I can only applaud the clarity of the content of Week 1 and look forward to the rest of the course. In fact it was so clear, I even managed to take notes on a mind map (using XMind) so I have revision notes in the weeks to come. I am also very much looking forward to keeping this up, getting some recognized qualifications and then starting my own bookkeeping business. So many thanks for your help and support. Jamie

    Hi Jamie, excellent. Mindmaps are really great. I use them all the time to create blueprints. I use FreeMind myself. Let me know how you get on when you start your business. You would make a great case study.

Hi Liska, I will send more info as soon as we are ready to go. No need to get the book, though the online exam will be based on the principles it teaches, so you may want to get it for revision purposes.

Great choice for going with the IAB. They are accredited by OfQual, the UK Government body responsible for Qualifications, and that is priceless.

Dear Quentin
Very interested to hear that your course will be AIB accredited – can I have more information and will I have to purchase a copy of your book as part of the course? I have attended a computerised book keeping course and worked through part of your course on line. I have decided that would like to go on to become fully qualified so your AIB course is of great interest to me – especially if I can work through it on line.
Many thanks,
Liska

Hi Quentin

I have a very low volume, but high fees business and so make do standard sales ledger, purchase ledger and cash book in Excel and then hand it acroass to my accountant once a year, so I am not sure if your package will offer me any advantage. I am also on fixed-rate vat. However, my issue is our domestic accounts and tracking not only expenditure (as we move into retirement), but also asset tracking, (source & application of funds?), analysis and management – cash, shares, bonds, funds etc, as well as building buy/hold/sell decision-making criteria. How will your software help with this please? Do you have a functional spec. I can study? Thanks.

    Hi Barry, thanks for visiting and taking the time to comment. This site is all about help with bookkeeping. What you are after is some fund tracking software. There is plenty of it out there. Try a search in Google for starters. Then I would join some of the many forums and see what people have to say.

    Regarding your business. If you have it all wrapped up in Excel, then that is great. With only a few transactions, perhaps the only advantage in using software would be the online submission service. But you can still do that manually.

Hi Quentin,

Wanted to say thank you. Finished reading through and tackling the tasks for week 1. You have made it very easy to understand. Passed my AAT Level 2 certificate in June if only I had known about your website then, it would have made the course even more exciting. Many Thanks!!!

Thanks Kelly 🙂 The rest of the course is much more in depth (I just didn’t want to scare anyone in the first week).

Hi Quentin,

Just to let you know that I love my week 1 ‘slice’. but was too short! i am hungry for more and cant wait. I also enjoyed reading the Home Bookkeeping parts 1 to 5. As they saying goes, ‘The best things in life are Free’. I have this new energy to start a business – your tips are invaluable!

Thanks a mil.

Hi Quentin,

i am a small business owner and after dealings with two poor accountants/book keepers in recent years (whom have left my accounts in a right mess) I have been learning book keeping/accountancy for myself. I am still a little shaky on some areas and would like to fill in the gaps to proceed with confidence. I am looking forward to receiving the first installment of your 12 week trial.

I have also tried to find your book to buy online to add to my collection, but its not available on Amazon and it is not immediately apparant anywhere else. So i was hoping you could reply or post a comment regarding this as i am sure other will find it useful.

Kind Regards

Ian
