I have been recently hired by contractor to take over doing their payroll and book keeping. They currently use Quickbooks Desktop Pro and will be switching to the online version for better accessibility. The dilmena is that the accounting is a bit of a mess, their accountant hasn't reconciled 2017 yet and still has the accountant copy, and it doesn't appear to be happening anytime soon. 2018 is also a mess as not everything has been entered (mostly receipts expenses haven't been inputted). The question is, it is easier to start over entirely with the online version without transferring the desktop info or should we be transferring what is currently in the desktop version to the online version even though its a tangled mess and nothing has been reconciled?
