Webinar: Streamlining Client Cleanup Projects with QBO and Liscio. (Sponsored by Liscio)

February 16, 2022

3:00 PM - 4:00 PM EST


Small business owners need your help in getting their books accurate so they can file their taxes and manage their businesses properly. They may have been “going it alone” last year to save money and now they can’t trust their balances.  Or, they may be a referral from a tax firm who asks you to clean up and verify the balances so they can proceed with the tax return. Either way, you need a process to manage this work that results in a great experience for your staff, and for the client. 

Come and learn practical tips designed to help you streamline your client clean-up projects and maximize the chances of converting the best of these clients into ongoing monthly clients for your firm.  

Note: this is not a training session on how to use QBO or Liscio. However Michelle will use QBO as the example when accounting software is referenced, and Liscio will be referenced to show how clients can be made an important part of the productivity team in a way that is delightful to them. Therefore, if you use Xero or another accounting software package, this webinar will still be very relevant for you because of the principles being shared.  

Learning Objectives:

  1. Standardize your onboarding process so you can use it with all new clients, regardless of the length of the engagement.
  2. Create a specific and manageable request process so clients are able to respond quickly and easily, and staff can track everything at each stage.
  3. Develop a process for wrapping up a clean-up project with the client.
  4. Learn how to convert the best clean-up project clients to an on-going, profitable client for your firm.
