A portable file is a compact copy of your company file small enough to email or save to portable media. A backup file is a complete copy of all information and includes transaction logs that may be used by an Intuit technician to restore damaged data. It contains everything you need to re-create your company file in case of accidental loss of data but it is very large
too big to email.
Quickbooks has an excellent timesheet section which, once time is posted, can automatically be transferred to an invoice for your customer. Expenses can also be tracked with the customer’s name and added to their invoice. Quickbooks will report on any unbilled time and costs. Timesheet data can also be used to prepare payroll for your employees. (ie. Time is entered once but can be used to automatically generate invoices and payroll)
