If you are looking for a quick way to set up a simple bookkeeping system, then have a look at the templates offered from the resources below.
Using templates saves you the time and effort of creating your own spreadsheets from scratch. Plus, when using a template there may be issues you didn’t consider.
Another benefit of using a template is that the formulas are already in place and working. Keep in mind if you make adjustments to the template remember to update the formulas if needed.
One disadvantage is that templates are usually focused on a few aspects of bookkeeping as opposed to a full-blown bookkeeping program.
