Each time you finish reconciling, QuickBooks Online automatically generates a reconciliation report for that session. The reconciliation report is useful if you have trouble reconciling the following month and when you meet with your accountant.
The reconciliation report summarizes the following:
- Beginning and ending balances.
- Lists which transactions were cleared and which were left uncleared when you reconciled.
|Note: QuickBooks Online automatically generates a new reconciliation report even if you reconcile the account for the same month.|

- From the left menu, go to Reports.
- Type Reconciliation Report in the Find report by name search bar.
- Select Reconciliation Reports.
- Select the Account for the reconciliation report you want to view.
- From the Report perioddrop-down arrow, choose the reconcile period.
- Select View Report.
How to print a reconciliation report
To print, select the Print icon in the upper right of the report.

Things to know about reconciliation reports
- This is a static report. If information within your company has changed, that change will not reflect on this report, but will affect all others within QuickBooks Online.
- The balance on this report is the balance of all the reconciled transactions, while all other reports show account balance based on posted transactions (Note: Transactions are reported as posted the moment you save them within QuickBooks Online).
- Reconciled transactions are those with the status R listed within the bank or credit card register.
