Hi, I am working with a registered charity to sort out a bit of a quagmire of historic bookkeeping mess. They currently use QuickBooks Online but there are years of historically unreconciled data and duplicated transactions which are muddying the water and the bank accounts have not been properly reconciled in years. I am relatively new to QBO myself, and I have little experience of the other major players out there, so I wonder if anyone has any views about what software works best for charities which have to report on charitable activities etc.
The charity has membership and other income coming through about 6 main channels, including paypal and GoCardless and has multiple bank accounts. It should all be pretty straightforward but the evidence I see in QuickBooks Online is that the (now ex-) staff have found it anything but straightforward. I am likely to recommend a change of software (new broom sweeps clean and all that) from 1 April.
Also up for considering automated processing like ReceiptBank and others...
Many thanks in anticipation of some good tips here!
