The reality is that the Jet Convert team was:
3. Fantastic on communication of MYOB/Xero conversion issues.
Working through post conversion issues with our clients has been so much easier with the post conversion report supplied by Jet Convert on completion for each file.
Service is quick, the detailed report report supplied after conversion is great and makes moving myob clients on to xero a breeze
However, our experience using JetConvert had caused no end of strife in our larger companies. By inputting the balances and doing the setup ourselves, the results have been much simpler and easy to use going forward. The trade off is not having historical information in Xero which in my opinion isn't devastating for two reasons
1. You can always access your backup if required,
2. The historical information is very difficult to fix if it was incorrect in MYOB and thus transferred accross as incorrect in Xero. As the clients who will use this are moving away from MYOB, they would understand the multitudes of scraps that can be left in MYOB if not maintained by an extremely competent bookkeeper.
I'm not a naysayer by any means but from experience I would just advise extreme caution if the files aren't immaculate.
Additionally, it is great for a 'spring clean' of the accounts if you do it manually.
Thanks for your feedback. We appreciate all feedback and are especially interested in helping you out if you have had a negative experience.
Our conversion service has been developed to not only deal with difficult MYOB files, but to actually help you unearth these legacy problems and clean them up. In our customised Action Checklist that you get with each conversion we highlight incorrect entries that might have been hidden in MYOB.
Including full history even if not squeaky clean and adding adjusting journals has the benefit of creating a strong audit trail. The things we see that need to be cleaned up usually relate to one of the following:
1) Irrelevant historical invoices/bills that have not been removed/written off
2) Future dated transactions that have not been picked up during reconciliation
3) Out of Balance issues around Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable accounts
All of these have had an impact on earlier figures created out of MYOB, so adjusting them through journals and paying invoices/bills off from the correct accounts will clean up the problems and reverse incorrect figures that might have been lodged in the past.
The other problem we've seen is that End of Year accounting journals have never been added to MYOB. Based on that feedback, we will be releasing on option of a "naked" conversion where you get a conversion with all the non financial data but no opening balances and no transactions. That way it will be easy to add the correct accountants' figures.
Looking forward to our conversation next week to understand the specifics you have been facing. Hopefully we can integrate your feedback in our constantly evolving conversion tool so that any future conversions you do will be a great experience, even if there is difficult legacy in MYOB.
