Using the Correct Cost Accounting Techniques Has a Huge Financial Impact. Get Fast Facts in this eBook.


QuickBooks only offers limited support and marginal features for inventory valuations and manufacturing costing, which are collectively known as cost accounting. This limited functionality can get frustrating to work with, and it is one of the top 10 reasons businesses choose to switch from accounting software to an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system.

However, that frustration is really only the tip of the iceberg. The bigger problem, the one hiding under the surface, is that using the wrong valuation and costing methods can cost your business significantly more in taxes. In short: it pays to understand the details of cost accounting.

Get the facts at your fingertips. Download the eBook “Principles of Inventory Valuation and Manufacturing Costing for Inventory-Centric Businesses” and, in 20 minutes, you will have a solid grounding with the fundamentals you need to know.
