Understanding the basics of a computer accounting system can help small business owners be more efficient at managing their business. Frazee-Vergas Community Education is offering a program for small business owners consisting of two parts:

The first is a 3-hour seminar on the basics of operating a computerized accounting system and how to use the information it produces to manage a business.

This seminar will be held Monday, January 28 from 6:30-9:30 p.m. at the Frazee High School media center. The instructor is Jim Soncrant, a consultant with the MN Small Business Development Center. The fee for the seminar is $30. Participants should register and pre-pay by January 24 by calling 334-2525.

In addition, those who attend the seminar will be entitled to schedule a one-on-one consultation at their place of business with Soncrant. This service is provided free by the MN Small Business Development Center. The focus will be on the use of whatever computerized accounting system the business owner uses, e.g. QuickBooks or Peachtree software.
