Freshbooks Data Migration

What to Expect During a FreshBooks Migration

Migrating from FreshBooks Classic to the new FreshBooks is a fairly simple process, but there are some errors that can happen during the transfer. As a certified FreshBooks Partner, Sal can troubleshoot these common migration problems and ensure that your FreshBooks account is set up correctly. A successful FreshBooks migration includes:

Reviewing your FreshBooks Classic account before migration

This includes any time entries and large projects that may take longer to migrate. Note that these can take up to 24 hours to migrate.

Re-entering and reconnecting information

Most of the data will transfer to the new FreshBooks; however, some items need to be manually re-entered, such as custom email templates. You’ll need to reconnect apps, bank accounts, re-invite customers, contractors, and your team.

Troubleshoot common issues

While there are plenty of resources available that will walk you through troubleshooting migration issues, having an expert by your side can save you time and cuts the guesswork out of solving problems on your own.

Run and compare reports

After the migration is complete, we compare information to make sure that it matches your FreshBooks Classic account, including company settings and billing due dates.

Because the new FreshBooks is an accounting software that deviates widely from FreshBooks Classic, there are many opportunities to improve the efficiency of your accounting system once you’ve migrated your data. With more options for third-party apps and features, we can help you get the most out of your new FreshBooks software.
