Question first: Is it for an existing business?, If so, do you have a chart of accounts?

We are an existing business, but we never have done proper accounting. We are selling cars, but we do not know where are money is going. Don't laugh!
So, now we want to learn how to properly set-up our business (could you tell us where we can buy some books for a used car dealer).

thanks in advance!

Both of you need to find a tax professional that is also a Certified Pro Advisor for QuickBooks (you can find them for your area on the Intuit web site) to get your books set up and to train you how to use them correctly. Much as you don't want to spend the money now, it will cost you much more to fix it later because you will probably be paying IRS penalties along with the accounting fees then.
