When Quick Books asks what type of business you want to use choose Retail General

5. When QuickBooks asks whether you want to use its chosen chart of accounts, choose Yes.

See Figure 16-5.You can always change the accounts later. If you want to spend the time, you can also input your entire custom chart of accounts manually (but we really, really don't recommend it).

6. Answer some more general questions, which we're sure you can handle with the aid of the incredibly intuitive QuickBooks help area.

7. When the preferences pages appear, select the 'Enter the bills first and then enter the payments later' option.
