As mentioned before, I am new to the business and am interested in hearing from season vetrans on how they handle the books. Do you use Quicken or a simple Excel spreadsheet? I can setup a quick income and expense spreadsheet, but interested in hearing how others handle it.
Currently my estimated revenue is $125K w/2 partime employees, WDF, drop-off, and lottery.

The best way I have found to handle accounting is with quickbooks, not quicken. Quickbooks is a full fledged computerized accounting program (made by same people as quicken) but it is so simple to use. If you get the pro version you can export stuff to MS-office for extra analysis. It will do payroll for you as well if you want.

We use Quickbooks for everything from tax prep (which our acct
uses) to printing payroll. We do use our PC for everything from
excel, word & the net - for reseach, info, creating signs/flyers.

Can you tell me what version of Quickbooks you use? There are several different kinds; Basic, professional, and enterprise.
I am assuming it's basic, but I just wanted to be sure.

Use the latest version...I believe it's Quickbooks Pro 2004. Easy to use and very user friendly

I would suggest the pro version.
