Amending bank transactions

I have been using Xero and now struggling to correct transactions in Bank accounts in Quickbooks.

 

Transactions were posted to Retain earning but I need to change them to Drawing.

 

I have been editing the transactions in the bank, but then I found on the chart of account report that the balances are still posted in Retained earning. Do I have to go into each transaction and delete them in Retained earning?

 

Also another question, transactions in bank account have been posted to undeposited fund. Please help me resolve these? I have not used undeposited fund before.

Amending bank transactions

Thank you for visiting the QuickBooks Community, @Kevloic. I’m here to help you clear up things about your transactions.

 

Your Retained Earnings represent the total of your annual profits or losses from your Income Statement. QuickBooks automatically transfers these entries from your Income Statement to your Balance & Sheet when a new fiscal year starts. That’s why these transactions are still posted on your RE.

 

For the best advice of correcting your transactions from Retained earnings to Drawing, I recommend reaching out to your accountant. They’re able to provide an expert’s advice so we can to ensure your books are accurate. This is because deleting a transaction might affect your financial data and may cause discrepancies in the future.

 

You’ll want to view your Profit and Loss report to review what makes up your Retained Earnings. If there are slight differences with your P&L and RE, you can also review the Retained Earnings account Quick Report.

 

Regarding the Undeposited Funds, it’s a special temporary account that holds invoice payments and sales receipt. It's comparable to a drawer where we retain payments before taking them to the bank to be deposited. It's not an actual bank accounts which is why there's no option to reconcile it in QBO.

 

In order to resolve this, you’ll need to combine the deposit or deposit them by group. This is so QuickBooks will recognize your payments if your real life bank acknowledge it as a single deposit. Then, we can deposit them to their relevant bank accounts first. From there, we can reconcile the bank where we deposited the funds to.

 

Here’s how:

 

  1. Tap the New menu in the upper left to select Bank Deposit under Other.
  2. Click the Account drop-down to select the correct bank.
  3. In the Select the payments included in this deposit section, tick the boxes for the transactions you’re going to deposit.
  4. Hit Save and close to keep the changes.

Amending bank transactions

Hi there,

 

Thank you so much for your help.

 

However with the retained earning issue, actually someone in the business has been posting the transactions directly from the bank to that account so I am trying to fix those transactions and reposting them in Drawings, which is the correct account for it

 

Regarding the deposited fund, I believe someone in the business again posted the transactions in the bank directly into those account or the invoices into those account and therefore they are not matching with the bank transactions.

 

How do I "undo" those and start again? or unpaid those payments and correctly match them to the bank transactions.

 

The payments received in the bank are not a lump sum for many invoices, they are individual payments for each invoices.

 

So I think my question is how do I undo what someone has posted from the bank and the payments in the invoices and then correctly matching them again?

Hi Kelvoic, thanks for getting back to us - you can undo transactions that have been added via the bank feed easily by logging in via the web and navigating to the banking > categorised tab - from here, select undo beside the transaction and this will move back to the for-review tab where you can re-categorise 😊
