I'm in a pickle. I had an accountant helping with Reconciling my books, but I'm finding some mistakes. An invoice payment was reconciled in October of last year instead of February of this year. Is the only way to fix it to unreconcile the last four months?
Well, if you would need to edit invoice, as it is not a bank transaction you could have done that without unreconciliation. However as you are talking about payments, there is still a way to change the date I believe.
When you change the reconciled payment received date, the effect depends on the date you're going to enter. It may not impact the opening balance of your next reconciliation if the date is within the month you currently reconciled. If not, it'll affect the opening balance.
Let me show you how:
On the left pane, selectAccounting.
In the Chart of Accountssection, find the bank.
In theACTIONcolumn, clickView Register.
Select the payment, then clickEdit.
On theReceive Paymentwindow, change thePayment date.
ClickSave and close.
So, you can do that, basically you will get just a warning. Hope that helps.
