I do not understand nor do I enjoy accounting. I have a small LLC, and I have a QFX file from my bank that encompasses all transactions from 2013. I would like to import this, manually categorize transactions (payments to myself and my partner, expenses, income from our CC processor, and income from checks). The bank account record is accurate, no need to reconcile.
When everything is categorized, I would like to generate a report that I can hand to our tax preparer that simply shows how much money was received, spent and paid to each partner.
This seems incredibly difficult. I have a screenful of "imbalanced" transactions, and I'm warned of dire consequences if I alter what I believe is the category (column labelled "Transfer"???).
Is there a "gnucash for idiots" resource out there somewhere? The business is very simple, and I really only need perhaps 1% of the features available here.
