So got client dilema: Did business case last year. Erased data. Now clients wants to pursue. New business case I rebuilt doesnt match at all. Current upside is 25% of prior year. I am pretty sure I made a mistake last year Do I present the new case, do I play crazy? Do I quit the firm in shame and move to south america? What would you do?

Good luck! Ci guess it's best to come clean. Would be so much better if you could recover it--biggest take away save and back up! If you could at least find the difference you might be able to white wash avtad, for example: "last time we assumed ..., now with different economy this assumption makes more sense" If it was a straight formula error, maybe wanna talk to your boss, addressing it as a liability issue. Full disclosure, I have not worked in corporate world in over 30 years. But as an independent, my first concern would be more about liability. If you do not do it, will they go elsewhere and then you risk those people pointing out "what had to be an error, etc" or do you keep it in house and try to minimize and mitigate within ethical boundaries? These kinds of crossroads are often nightmare making ones. So decide carefully. Take Care and Good Luck!

How do you know if you made an error if the data and/or old model was deleted? Don't assume you're to blame unless you have a specific error and correction identified. Either way, involve others at your firm on figuring out next steps. Hunt like hell for old files, especially in your email or a colleague email. Ask your firm's IT team for ideas. Maybe even ask the client for old deliverables that might have assumptions and calculations.

Due to the scarcity of projects, I was staffed into a project I despise, notorious in the office for being ‘toxic’.
