Reconcile credit card account with subaccounts

When you reconcile a credit card that contains sub accounts, the payment made zeros the parent account balance, however, the subaccounts continue to reflect their balances in the Chart of Accounts.

Detailed Instructions

When entering the payment to the credit card company, remove the parent account from the expense tab and enter each subaccount with an appropriate amount to each line.

Reconcile the parent account as normal.

  1. Create the payment check.
  2. Edit the account in the Expense tab.
    1. Delete the line item that has the parent account listed.
    2. Enter a line item for each sub account with the appropriate amount that you want paid toward that account.
      Note: The total amount of the transaction will not change.
    3. Ensure the transaction is balanced.
    4. Click Save & Close.
