Using the Business Planner Tools

Depending on the version of QuickBooks that you use, one other command may be available on the Planning & Budgeting submenu: the Use Business Plan Tool. The Use Business Plan Tool command starts another software program called QuickBooks Business Planner that steps you through writing a business plan. When you choose the command, QuickBooks starts the business plan software, and you write your business plan by following the onscreen steps. If you’re interested in using this tool, just experiment. You can’t do any damage to the QuickBooks data file.

tip.eps If you didn’t buy a version of QuickBooks that supplies the Business Planner software and you’re now totally bummed out, let me mention that I have quite a bit of free business-planning information available at my www.stephenlnelson.com website, including Excel business-planning templates that you can use.
