Undoing Reconiliation of an invoice payment



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?

Re: Undoing Reconiliation of an invoice payment

Hello @something bridal ,


  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:

  1. On the left pane, select Accounting.
  2. In the Chart of Accounts section, find the bank.
  3. In the ACTION column, click View Register
  4. Select the payment, then click Edit.
  5. On the Receive Payment window, change the Payment date
  6. Click Save and close
  7. Click Yes to confirm. 

  So, you can do that, basically you will get just a warning.
Hope that helps.
