There are specific best practices to track suspicious activities in QuickBooks. QuickBooks is a highly secure accounting software with multiple levels of encryption. Security has always been an important aspect of this accounting software. This is why many users trust this software with their financial data and personally identifiable information.
By creating specific types of reports, you can check for suspicious activities at your organization. The two reports that will help you in accomplishing this have been mentioned below:
An Audit report will present all of the information related to a transaction in great detail. The most important detail here is regarding the addition, deletion and modification. With this information, you can find if anyone at your organization is making unnecessary or fraudulent entries into your books.
Reconciliation statements are generated by tallying transactions present in a particular account with that of the bank account. Through this report, users can identify inaccuracies in their company file.
Further, many organizations use this report as a tool to not only ensure the accuracy of information but also to identify fraudulent transactions. It is recommended by most accountants that users regularly create reconciliation statement for particular financial periods.
Note: You can use filters to select the type of transactions that the report should include. These filters can be accessed through the show filters panel. If you’re not using the 2018 version of QuickBooks and have downloaded the report template, then you will not be able to apply additional filters.
In QuickBooks, you can add restrictions to user accounts that will be enforced by the software. There are many predefined options that you can choose from. Once a restriction has been applied, the user will not be able to perform that specific action. The actions that you can restrict for user accounts in QuickBooks include:
- Viewing rights
- Editing Rights
- Ability to create reports
These are the specific features that will be restricted for the account. Further, the user will not be able to export data from QuickBooks. This means that both export to PDF and print functions will not work for that particular user.
Note: User rights and roles can only be set by administrator accounts. Without administrative privileges, one cannot set such options in QuickBooks.
