All data lost

I had a recent problem with Quickbooks and as I am on the self employed subscription annoyingly can't talk to anyone.  I dealt with someone via email, which was painful and took far longer than if on the phone.  To resolve my issue, I was told to delete the bank accounts and reconnect.  I was assured they would reinstate my transactions.  I subsequently got an email saying everything has been reinstated. Except it hasn't.  I now only have transactions going back to June 2020, now all no longer reviewed (I was assured they would be reviewed with my receipts attached as I had reviewed them).  I have also lost all date prior to June 2020, so around two years worth of accounts.  

 

I am tearing my hair out as a) I can't talk to a human to help out b) when I reply to the email saying it's all sorted it tells me that I have no open tickets c) I am now open up to serious problems with the tax man as I not longer have many receipts or the transactions

 

Any help? I definitely need to find a better accounting provider.  Bad advice given and even worse steps taken by Quickbooks

This isn't the kind of service we want you to experience, @Cocoon.

 

I have some information about your bank accounts. You'll want to make sure you're using the correct QBSE app and the login credentials. This way, the reinstated transactions will show. Here's how you can download the iOS or Android mobile app for QuickBooks Self-Employed.

 

You might also want to reply to one of the emails about the reinstated transactions to verify.

 

If you need help with other QBSE task, feel free to visit our blog site for specific topics at this link here. Just look for responses that fit your concern.

 

Please know that you're always welcome to come back to me if you still have questions or concerns with your bank accounts. I'm just a post away. Take care and have a good one.

Thank you for responding. The service falls way beyond what is expected. The very fact I cannot talk or email directly is a headache. As I already mentioned, I responded to the email claiming all transactions had been reinstated, but got a response saying I had no open tickets. 

 

I do find it patronising suggesting I check I have the right version of the app. I've also logged in online. Years of transactions are missing.

 

Nothing has been reinstated. I have even logged in and out again.

 

I find it hard to understand that there is not automatically a back up that customers can revert to when they need or download whenever they choose. It's a very basic function.

 

Of course, if this isn't resolved by QB I'll be moving to Sage software. Way more reliable.

ps Not only are years of transactions missing, so are all the receipts attached to them.

I too am having the SAME problem with our business account! I was planning to try and contact QB on Monday.  All receipts lost. All transactions for 2020 now "unreviewed". Prior tax year information is incomplete.  This is NOT acceptable!

I have you managed to retrieve your data? I had completed all of my accounts a few weeks back and have just logged on to complete my tax return to find everything has vanished!!!!

I wouldn't bother with the online customer service.  They are useless.  They end the chat thinking they've resolved things when they haven't and you have to open a file all over again and then they don't understand.  I emailed the CEO of Quickbooks in the end and he put me on to someone who was very helpful.  I have lost a load of receipts but have kept my emails should HMRC every audit me.  The online customer service is shoddy and has never been fit for purpose.
