I know it's my fault.
Turns out a previous employee was a liar and incredibly lazy, he made lots of guesses and assumed a lot more than he should have, now we are having to go through all his work with a fine toothed come and tell the clients the bad news.
I did watch over him carefully, but didn't think he would lie to my face to save himself 10 seconds of work.
Considering keeping my best clients and becoming a sole pract again.
Oh and to add to the misery, one new client swore their bookkeeping was done by an experienced and qualified bookkeeper, the client did it themselves, not a single thing reconciles a complete mess, the only positive is the TB balances. Oh and its all late..
I know there is always additional postings and reclasses to do, but would it be wrong of me to ask him to have another go and get back to me? It would take hours to correct it all, and the client is, shall we say "very price sensitive".
Another just wanted the year end accounts done, the bookkeeping wasnt too bad, however the payroll and VAT is very wrong.
Sometimes it pays to pay people who know what they are doing.
Think I need the weekend.
