You can’t get far in the bookkeeping business before you come across a REALLY messy QBO file.

The client has come to you for help because they’ve either crashed and burned doing their books DIY or have been working with a bookkeeper who did everything wrong. It’s become like quicksand, getting worse the harder they struggle to get out.

Some bookkeepers run from cleanup jobs like this, but they can be a great way to start relationships with new clients and prove your value to them. The problem is that it’s tough to know the scope of the job or even where to start. I’ll be honest, cleanup jobs can be overwhelming. Especially if you jump in without a plan.

Cleaning up a file without a plan or structure to follow leads to a lot of wasted time and could even make the problem worse before it gets better. How can you avoid that stress?
