At Lethert Tax Accounting Systems, Inc. we are constantly updating our knowledge and technical capabilities both at a personal and business level.  Because we deal with such a wide variety of industries, individuals, geographic area and information technology needs, we have gained a pragmatic experience level often far greater than any specific company, person, location or application.  We have a considerable bit of knowledge in a great number of things, making us the perfect generalist who can cut through the shadows and shed light on the "big picture".  The biggest training issue faced by most individuals and small companies is tendency to become either overwhelmed by the task or too focused on specific causes, only to find that the problem they though they had is merely a symptom of a far greater issue that has gone unnoticed for years.  We understand that at some point this happens to everyone.  The solution is generally to return to the basics.  Yet, in the last few years, even those basics have changed dramatically.  The ultimate answer is that individuals and companies are faced with the challenge to learn new skills.  Instead of reinventing the wheel, why not start your educational update by learning from our knowledge and experience.

Our Training services include but are not limited to:

Software Selection and Implementation

With the growing number of computerized accounting software packages available for small businesses and individuals, selecting one that is right for you has become increasingly difficult. As accounting professionals, we are exposed to most programs through trade journals and actual use. Our experienced staff can help you focus your choices and implement the system that best fits your needs or skill level.

Record Keeping Setup and Procedures Training

The biggest myth is, "Anyone can do record keeping" or that, "Record keeping should come naturally". The truth is that most of the population struggles with record keeping. First, they have never been properly taught how to keep records and, more importantly, have never developed the habits and discipline needed to maintain a record keeping system on a regular and consistent basis. Just like a fad diet, record keeping has the same acceptance problem. If someone tells you that you can shed a bunch of weight by only eating peanuts yet you are allergic to peanuts, not only will the diet fail, but you won't stick with the diet and it might actually be harmful if you did. For any record keeping system to be maintained, two conditions are critical. First, the system must be properly matched to the capabilities of the person who is being asked to maintain that system. Second, the records that are maintained need to have current relevance and meaning in the lifestyle of the person maintaining the system for that person to develop the habit and discipline to maintain the system for the long-term. At Lethert Tax Accounting Systems Inc, we customize any system based on how you work and how you embrace any recommendation we provide. Further, we make no particular recommendation until we know you. We want to assure that you are successful in implementing and maintaining any system or procedures that we may recommend.

Certified QuickBooks® Pro Advisor®

QuickBooks is one of the most sophisticated money management tools that has ever been invented. Unfortunately, QuickBooks is not SimpleBooks and garbage in will equal worse than garbage out. Not only can we provide you the application at its wholesale cost, we can guide you in all aspects of the application's proper operation. When used properly, QuickBooks can provide useful and timely information in the form of real financial statements, reports and graphs. However, it can only provide this information if you purchase the right product and then install, setup and operate it in accord with Intuit recommended standard operating procedures. We don't just help you buy and load the software onto your computer, we help you use it in a practical and effective manner according to solid and time tested record keeping principles.

Lethert Tax Accounting Systems, Inc. offers the following solutions to help meet your QuickBooks needs:

Personal Training

We train you personally at your company location! Either one-on-one or as a group within your organization. In providing this training, there is no charge for travel time or costs if your location is within the metropolitan Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul or if the training can be arranged as an interactive webinar.


We install QuickBooks on your stand-alone computer or in a network environment. We also advise and assure that your organization has the appropriate licensing from Intuit to use the application in either single- or multi-user mode.


We assist new QuickBooks users with initial setup including: Establishing an appropriate chart of accounts, setting operational preferences, creating posting lists and indexes, setting up customers, vendors and employees, coordinating bank information and customizing reports. We also help experienced users manage their businesses more effectively by improving their current setup. Many users experience problems and lack the ability to generate and track important information as a result of inadequate setup or training.


Our QuickBooks support service can assist you with any installation, setup or operation assistance you might need. In addition, our support is not limited just to the software part of it, but we can also provide accounting, bookkeeping and payroll assistance.


Our QuickBooks review service helps companies that have the human resources to perform daily accounting and payroll tasks, but need an accounting and payroll expert to review your transactions, accounts and reports. This review ensures that you receive timely, relevant and reliable financial information. We also inform you of any corrections, adjustments or reclassification necessary to ensure that the financial information you receive reflects the correct financial condition of your business. Reviews may be conducted at any time, but monthly or quarterly reviews provide you with up-to-date information and feedback about your business.
