Class Balance Totals Do Not Match Bank Balance Total

Hello!  I am trying to understand why my Class Balance Totals do not match my overall Bank Account Total.  We are a church with 1 bank account and all funds are tracked through 7 different classes (both income and expenses).  It would seem to me that the 7 individual class balances should add up and equal the total of our bank account.  There are no transactions shown as unclassified.  In addition to the two balances not ever matching, I am also trying to figure out why there is a fluctuation between these totals - it isn't always off by the same amount.  It appears that Payroll Liabilities have some effect, but I can't quite pinpoint how these are reflected either.  The Liabilities are tied to our General Fund class, but even if I zero them out, the two balances still don't match.   Thanks for the help!

Class Balance Totals Do Not Match Bank Balance Total

The Liability balance should show as Unclassified with the corresponding bank column, which proves Assets = Liability + Equity. The expense details from all liability is already Classed. The liabilities do not also get classed; that makes out of balance reporting.


As long as you are using Premier or Enterprise, the Bal Sheet by Class should show everything.
