How We Help With QuickBooks File Issues

Whether you are currently using QuickBooks Pro, Enterprise, or QuickBooks Online, our detailed 65-Point QuickBooks file review service provides you with a comprehensive report on the state of your QuickBooks file. Even with the most complicated of issues, we can repair corrupt QuickBooks files and ensure access to your data.

Our experts can locate the best workflows and feature usage by reviewing the data file, balance sheet, and income statements. We focus on the different list items you use and how you use them. Then, we look at the distinct transaction types and their usages to fully understand your business needs.

Our goal at Fourlane is to provide input for industry and accounting standards so you can gain insights into better ways to run your QuickBooks file. After reviewing your files and accounts, we will schedule a onehour call with you to go over the results and put together a project plan that will take you from where you are now to where you should be.

QuickBooks Software Usage Review
  • We’ll check your file size, list usage, and whether you are in the right version of QuickBooks. We may recommend moving to a different version of QuickBooks or purchasing additional add-ons for QuickBooks based on your business or industry needs to enhance your user experience.
  • We will confirm that transaction types and reporting basis are being used correctly.
  • Our team will review your feature usage in QuickBooks and determine if turning on features or changing preferences will lead to better usage and reporting inside QuickBooks.
  • We’ll perform other general database performance checks and note potential issues, including identifying how to fix corrupt QuickBooks files.
QuickBooks Balance Sheet Review
  • We’ll conduct a month-over-month comparison to determine material variances that could indicate an issue.
  • Our experts will check for proper usage and reconciliation of accounts.
  • We’ll confirm that the balances shown on the balance sheet are current and tie out to different sub-schedules.
  • We’ll then review the overall structure of the balance sheet for recommended formatting improvements, leading to better reporting visibility.
QuickBooks Profit and Loss Review
  • We’ll perform a month-over-month comparison to determine material variances that could indicate an issue.
  • Our team members will look at how items are being used and possibly leading to inconsistent growth profit margins.
  • We’ll review the overall structure of the income and expense accounts for improvements that could be made to formatting leading to better visibility with reporting.

Common Reasons for a QuickBooks File Review

QuickBooks Online
QuickBooks Is Running Slow

When the program runs slowly, or the file takes a long time to load, you may feel frustrated whenever you open QuickBooks. Reasons for slow operation include:

  • Using the wrong QuickBooks version based on business needs
  • Running an unsupported or outdated version of the software
  • Failing to update custom or external plugins
  • Using too much legacy data
  • Having a corrupt file

We can help you navigate all of these challenges, and we specialize in repairing corrupt QuickBooks files and Quickbooks Clean Up .

QuickBooks File Corruption

If you can’t open your QuickBooks file or you see a QuickBooks unrecoverable error when opening your company file, corruption is likely. A corrupt file can occur in response to an incorrect initial build, an update prior to checking the file, or adding plugins and custom programming.

The Intuit “Rebuild File” tool may help, but it only handles several types of file corruption. It also may not work properly due to the size of the file.

Our team can easily diagnose the problems in your file and open even a badly damaged file. Additionally, we’re experts in fixing corrupt QuickBooks files, delivering clean and functional files to our clients.

Numbers Aren’t Adding Up

Although QuickBooks should make running your business easier, a file that doesn’t function properly can create new challenges. Some of these include: 

  • Out-of-balance accounts
  • Negative inventory
  • Non-functional balance sheet
  • Inability to run profit & loss

These problems can cause irreparable damage to your company file and result in incorrectly reported earnings. Talk with one of our trained experts immediately to resolve these issues before they cause costly damage.

We have worked with Alisha Raesz at Fourlane for over 2 years. She has helped us navigate building new QB files for two companies and has been a lifesaver is keeping our QB file up to date. We consider Alisha a part of the CR team. She is extremely professional and always willing to teach us how to make changes and updates the correct way. We can't thank Alisha and the entire Fourlane team enough for helping us organize our company so we can grow! I highly recommend Alisha if you are in need of an experienced Quickbooks professional.

Our company has worked several times with Fourlane, and we could not be happier! They are both responsive and professional, and Fourlane constantly impresses with both the quality of the reports they produces for us, as well as the quick timelines he's able to adhere to (and beat at times!) If it was possible to give more than 5 stars I would, because that's just how satisfied we have been working with Fourlane.

I've been through a few different software conversions. Each of them was stressful and difficult. Fourlane made our conversion from Microsoft Dynamics Great Plains to Quickbooks Online as simple and painless as I've experienced. Every aspect was top notch. Kaylin Leland was awesome and very patient with us as our staff had varying levels or prior experience with QB. Trisha Thomas managed the project exceptionally well and was checking in frequently to make sure we were happy with every aspect. I would HIGHLY recommend Fourlane for anyone looking to transition to Quickbooks.

FAQs About QuickBooks File Review Services

A QuickBooks file review service is a professional evaluation of your accounting software file to ensure accuracy, compliance, and optimal performance. A review will ensure your file is operating correctly and identify any errors or issues before they grow too big to resolve quickly.

A file review service can help you identify errors, reconcile accounts, clean up data, and improve other aspects of your financial records. It can also make sure you’re getting the most out of the software and determine which additional features would benefit your business.

Conducting a QuickBooks file review at least once a year is recommended, but the frequency may vary depending on the characteristics of your business. Larger and more complex companies can benefit from more frequent reviews, perhaps even quarterly.

You can review your QuickBooks file on your own to look for any issues. However, our professionals offer expertise and utilize advanced tools to identify problems you might overlook. It’s beneficial to have Fourlane conduct a third-party expert review. Not only can we catch any issues, but we can also make recommendations to optimize your QuickBooks usage.

The duration of a QuickBooks file review depends on the complexity of your data and who is conducting the review. The process could take as little as a few hours for a smaller, simpler business model, while a more complex review may take several weeks.

With Fourlane, you’re sure to get the best service possible and the quickest, highest-quality review.

The cost of a file review will depend on the size and complexity of your business. It also depends on how many QuickBooks files a business has. Some businesses operate several entities each having their own file and data. Fourlane offers a free consultation, providing an idea of the cost before you commit.

With a well-maintained QuickBooks file, you can access accurate reports in real time. Additionally, you get better visibility into your business finances, making it easier to catch mistakes and issues before they cause long-term problems. Your business will run more smoothly, and you’ll be able to make informed decisions regarding the direction of its future.
