Complete your reconciliation

Reconciling your account—matching the balances for your paper statement and QuickBooks account—is a two-step process in QuickBooks. First you'll compare the beginning balance on your bank statement to the beginning balance in QuickBooks, and make sure the information for the account you want to reconcile in QuickBooks is correct. Then, you'll compare individual transactions and reconcile your account.

To do this task

  1. You should have completed all the steps to begin your reconciliation.

  2. When you find a transaction in the Reconcile window that matches a transaction on the statement, click the transaction to mark it as cleared.

    • For each transaction you select, verify that the amount in the Reconcile window matches the amount shown on your statement.

    • If some amounts don't match or if you find transactions that contain other errors, correct the transactions.

    • If you find a transaction on your statement that is not shown in the QuickBooks list of uncleared transactions, enter the transaction now.

  3. (Optional) Click the Modify button if you want to return to the Begin Reconciliation window so that you can change some of your entries.

  4. (Optional) If you are trying to look at a particular transaction on the list, click the Go To button to see details.

  5. When you've finished selecting the transactions, look at the difference amount in the bottom right corner of the Reconcile window:

    • If the amount is 0.00. Click Reconcile Now. You've reconciled the account with the statement. At this point, you can have QuickBooks print a reconciliation report.

    • If the amount is not zero. Your account does not balance for the period of time covered by the statement, and you need to correct the difference or, if the difference is not significant, reconcile anyway and QuickBooks will enter an adjustment for you.
