How To Reconcile Previously Deleted And Re-entered Checking Or Credit Card Transactions

Reconciliation in QuickBooks is a process that allows you to match transactions in QuickBooks Desktop with your bank account or credit card account. You can perform this process any time. However, you can face several issues as well while reconciling your transactions. One such error is when you have processed the reconciliation, but the transactions still shows unreconciled. Some of the most possible causes of this issue are as follow:

  • You mistakenly selected the Undo Last Reconciliation
  • You made some modifications in the reconciled transactions or they were removed.
  • The reconciled transactions were marked in the account register.
  • The amount was transferred or received from a previously reconciled transaction.
  • You converted your QuickBooks company file from Mac to Windows or QuickBooks Online to desktop.
  • You never reconciled the transaction in your company file (You restored the backup and the over-right the existing reconciled transaction).

Reconcile Previously Deleted And Re-entered Transactions

The reason can be abstract but whenever this issue occurs, you need to reconcile same transactions again. You can also process a mini reconciliation or special reconciliation to resolve the issue. However, this error can be resolved by performing two different methods. We have provided both the methods that you need perform to resolve the issue and they are as follow:

Method 1:

In this method, you need to perform an off-cycle reconciliation date and you also need to the ending balance from the latest reconciliation.

Reconcile A Bank Account

  • From the Banking menu, select Reconcile.
  • Choose the account that you want to reconcile.
  • Now, provide a date for an off-cycle reconciliation in the Date of Statement. You can set any date between the last and upcoming reconciliation. Note: While using the Off-Cycle date, you will get a reminder that a mini reconciliation is already being used to keep last unreconciled transactions back without having any impact on the Cycle that is being followed by them.
  • Provide the last successful reconciliation balance under the Ending Balance field and select Continue.
  • Check the transactions you are currently reconciling. Make sure you see $0.00 in the Difference field and then click on Reconcile Now.

Reconcile A Credit Card Account

  • Perform above steps again to reconcile a bank account but here, you need to choose the credit card account instead of bank account.
  • From the Credit Card reconciliation screen, choose Reconcile Now You may be asked to Create a payment check or Create a bill to pay later.
  • Select the Create a Bill
  • Once the reconciliation report is printed, the credit card bill will be shown on your screen. The amount on the bill is the balance you reconciled in this reconciliation.
  • Remove all the details from the bill by clicking on Clear
  • Close the Bill Window.
  • A bill is not created, and it will not affect your credit card balance.

Method 2

In this method, you need a date other than the recent reconciled date and there is no need to know the ending balance from previous reconciliation.

Reconcile a bank account

  • From the Banking menu, choose Reconcile.
  • Select the account you are reconciling.
  • In the Date of Statement section, provide an off-cycle date. Doing this will ensure that the transactions shows in the proper reconciliation report period.
  • Type $1.00 in the Ending Balance section and choose Continue. Ensure that $1.00 is an arbitrary figure to initiate the reconciliation process and it can also be modified in next steps.
  • Checkout the transactions on the Reconcile window.
  • Checkout the Cleared Balance amount from the bottom-right corner.
  • Open the begin reconciliation window by selecting the Modify
  • In the Ending Balance field, provide the Cleared Balance and then select Continue.
  • Make sure you see xero difference. If yes, select Reconcile Now

Reconcile a credit card account

  • Follow the same steps to open the Reconcile window but you need to choose Credit Card account this time.
  • Select Reconcile Now option and you will get a message stating: The outstanding balance on this account is $______.To pay all or a portion of this amount, select the payment type and click OK. To leave the balance in reconciled account, click on Cancel.
  • Ensure that while creating a bill that you are unable to pay now, QuickBooks and your payment won’t be included in the sync because QuickBooks displays a payment and not your statement.
  • Click on Cancel to the message window.

How To Record A Payroll Liability Refund Check In QuickBooks?

In this article, we will be helping you out to record a payroll liability refund check.

Record A Payroll Liability Refund

The liability balance turns into negative when payroll liabilities are overpaid. This can be corrected by creating a payroll liability refund. Doing this will increase the liability balance.

Run A Balance Report

Before you go to the process, you need to create a Payroll Liabilities Balance report. You need to check out the credits (amounts with negative values) which is equal to the refund amount and the tax item.

  • If there are credits, perform the steps to enter a payroll liability refund check.
  • If there are no credits, perform a regular or manual bank deposit and post it into the Payroll Expense.
  • Assisted Payroll: If the refund is of a duration before you started using Assisted Payroll, or the liability balance is not showing up as negative, you have to provide the refund check in a form of deposit to your bank account.

Enter A Payroll Liability Check

  • Go to the Employees menu and choose Payroll Taxes and Liabilities > Deposit Refund Liabilities.
  • Choose the vendor’s name who submitted the refund check.
  • Provide the deposit date in the Refund Date
  • Under the For Period Beginning section, provide the first day of period that the refund affects.
  • Choose the way you want QuickBooks to manage the deposit:
    • Group with other Undeposited funds: It adds the amount in a holding account. It also allows you to enter a deposit with multiple items. For this option, you need to use Make/Record Deposit to finish the process.
    • Deposit To: It allows you to record the amount to the account of your preference.
  • On the Taxes and Liabilities section, choose the payroll item/s that have an impact by the refund.
  • Provide the positive amount in the Amount
  • (Optional) Enter a note in the memo field.
  • Click on OK.
  • For Basic, Standard, or Enhanced Payroll users in the US region, the process is already finished.
  • For Assisted Payroll users:
    • From the main menu, go to Employees > Send Payroll Data.
    • On the Send/Receive Data window, locate Tax Adjustments and Funds to be Withdrawn for the Deposit Refund amount of taxes you mentioned. When it is sent to you, the funds won’t be withdrawn.
    • Process a payroll with zero amount. While the payroll liabilities are overpaid, the liability balance will be shown as negative. When you refund this deposit, it will increase the liability balance and it will become zero again.

If the taxing agency withheld a portion of the refund for a separate balance due:

  • Perform above steps properly. (Provide the full tax amount refund on the Deposit total section.)
  • Provide a liability adjustment in the account for the portion that was withheld to reduce the liability.

If interest was paid to you on the check…

Don’t add the amount in Deposit Refund of Liabilities of Liabilities. For this you need to follow the below-mentioned steps:

  • Perform steps 1 to 5.
  • Select Group the deposit with Undeposited funds.
  • Go to the Deposit total field, provide the amount of negative refund of interest paid.
  • Now, perform steps 7 to 9.
  • Make a Deposit for the interest and insert amount under the Undeposited Funds. Doing this will let you make a deposit with both payroll liabilities and added interest.
