Migration of Accounting Packages – MYOB & XERO

Migration of Accounting Packages – MYOB & XERO

Don’t trust a free migration!!

Bookkeeping Migration

Quite often companies will want to change from one Accounting package to another…

However, the process can be time-consuming and difficult particularly if there is no basic knowledge of the steps one must take. Some companies offer a free migration but require everything to be perfectly reconciled before uploading, which can cause unnecessary stress. Even if they were to be able to get everything uploaded, they would still need to map all the accounts meaning you basically end up doing it all by yourself.

Clients Needs Bookkeeping is a company who has the expertise required to finish this task within a single day, although the process is to sign up for the new accounting package a month early. This time allows the duplication of the chart of accounts and payroll card files and properly prepare for the migration.

The Process

At the same time, time will be taken to close off the old file and make certain everything is reconciled and ready to do a transfer over to the new file.
