QuickBooks, system setup, or bookkeeping procedures—if you need training, call us.  We can set up your accounting and related systems and explain things in a way that helps you become more productive.

Some companies prefer to have Bookkeeping Plus handle all of their accounting needs from A to Z. Others want to handle some functions in-house (e.g. sales receipts, deposits, bills, or other data entry), and have BPI provide the rest (e.g. month-ends, accounting reports, analysis, government forms, payroll).


At BPI, we can train you or your bookkeeping staff on proper data entry, bookkeeping procedures, or the use of QuickBooks. First, let us help you design a system that meets your needs for financial accuracy, cost efficiency, and effective reporting. Then, we can generate easy-to-follow instructions for you as we train you on using your system.


As trainers and consultants, we can also teach you how to understand your accounting journals and ledgers, how to read a financial statement and know what it means, and how you as a manager or board member can use your accounting information to make better business decisions.


Schools who have significant sums of money flowing through their extra-curricular accounts can usually benefit from having their ECA Treasurer and staff trained on ECA accounting methods, to help them reduce losses or theft and minimize risk.  In addition, government agencies and schools in Indiana are required to have staff training to meet the Internal Control law. 


Bookkeeping Plus has been using QuickBooks for over two decades, in virtually every conceivable industry and for every conceivable purpose. If you want Quickbooks set-up and training, we’re your team.

We can teach you not only what to enter and where to click, but also how to understand why you are doing it. Knowing the hows and whys makes it easier and less frustrating. Call us and let us show you what we mean.


Call us and ask for CEO Beth Marsh.  She will personally listen, evaluate your needs at no charge, and honestly advise you on if Bookkeeping Plus is the best firm for you.
