Variances between your bank account balance in QuickBooks Online and the actual bank total can happen sometimes, Mp196920160. But don't worry, I'm here to guide you in identifying and rectifying the underlying cause.


Currently, the built-in feature to restore your company data to a previous date is only available in QuickBooks Online Advanced. If you're using a different plan, we can manually correct the discrepancy. Let's go through a step-by-step procedure to troubleshoot the issue.


To get started, compare all the entries in QuickBooks Online against your bank statements. Verify that the opening balance and transactions are accurately entered, including dates, amounts, and categories. Here's how:


  1. Go to the Accounting menu.
  2. Choose Chart of Accounts.
  3. Open the appropriate register.
  4. Take note of the opening balance and transaction dates/amounts.




Next, sign in to your bank's website or pull up your statement to assess the data. Then, perform the necessary adjustments or changes. Furthermore, if you use bank feeds (Open Banking), make sure to categorize and add all the relevant transactions.


Reconciliation is also an essential task to match the records. Similar to balancing your checkbook, you need to reconcile your accounts in QBO to the last known correct statement date. This ensures that they always go with your real-life business processes.

Regarding your question about removing all transactions and starting again, I'd like to provide some important insights. While it is technically possible to do that, it's generally not recommended. Deleting them will remove all historical information, which could impact your financial data, reports, and analysis.


Remember to always exercise caution when making modifications. If you're unsure or need expert advice, I encourage consulting with an accountant.
