QuickBooks Sample Chart of Accounts

Note: ServiceShop's integration to QuickBooks requires QuickBooks 2001 or newer.

When making your selection, be sure to match your QuickBooks version.

(Note: These files are zipped, are very small, and will download very fast. You will have to unzip them before you can use them.)

This is a sample QuickBooks Chart Of Accounts designed to work with ServiceShop. It was created in QuickBooks, and then exported from QuickBooks as an *.iif file. Since it can be directly imported into both QuickBooks and into ServiceShop as well, it vastly simplifies the setup process for both programs. Of course, you may wish to add other G/L accounts to suit your own accounting requirements. If so, bring it into QuickBooks and make your changes before bringing it into ServiceShop.

To do this in QuickBooks 2001, -2, -3, -4, and -6:
(see below for QuickBooks 2005)

  1. Working from within QuickBooks: Unzip the downloaded file
  2. Import this file into QuickBooks by clicking on File, Utilities, Import, then click on "Chart Of Accounts", then click on OK.
  3. Modify the Chart of Accounts as needed.
  4. Export the Chart of Accounts. To do this click on File, Utilities, Export, then click on "Chart of Accounts", then OK.
  5. Working from within ServiceShop: Import the file created in step 3 into ServiceShop. To do this click on Configuration, System Settings, then click on QuickBooks Interface, then click on File, Import QuickBooks COA, then select the file to be imported.
  6. Configure all 3 of ServiceShop's QuickBooks screens located under Configuration, QuickBooks Interface. Click here to view these 3 screens fully configured using this sample Chart of Accounts.

To do this in QuickBooks 2005, the procedure is the same except that there is no "Utilities" choice.

Sample Disclaimers

Here's an initial setup time-saver for you: rather than typing all your messages and disclaimers into your new ServiceShop installation, copy and paste from these samples, then edit to suit.
