Deposit made to same account



I erroneously made a  bank deposit from Account A back into Account A when it should have gone into Account B.  I am trying to reconcile the bank statement with  QuickBooks, showing  the deposit from "A"  into "A"  so that I can check it off  and reissue but it will not allow me to use the same financial accounts on the deposit form.


Any suggestions?  I am a newbie to QuickBooks and this one has me stumped.

Deposit made to same account

Welcome to the QuickBooks Community, ohioei.


I'd like to help you with the deposit, but I need more details from it. Did you write a check or created a journal entry to deposit an amount from Account A to Account A?


When recording a bank deposit in QuickBooks Desktop, you will need to select the account (Account A) you want to put the deposit into from the Deposit to drop-down. Then, from the From Account column, choose the account (Account B) where the money is coming from.


Here's a sample screenshot for reference:

Thank you for your response.  


The issue I have is I wrote two checks from Account "A" that were deposited back into Account "A".   So I cannot use a deposit slip showing From Account A to Account A, which is what my bank statement shows.  I was trying to balance my bank statement with the QB entries but the bank statement shows the two written checks and the deposit whereas QB does not.  I have reissued the checks and deposited them into the correct Account "B" but I don't know how to clear the checks/deposit for reconciliation purposes. 


I'm sure there is a simple fix but I just haven't realized it yet.  


Thanks for your help.

Thanks for sharing the detailed information, @ohioei.


Since you're unable to select the same account on a Bank Transfer transaction, you'll want to follow the workaround shared by my colleague. This way, it will post to Account A as what should be on your bank transaction.


You may follow these steps to make a bank deposit:

  1. Go to the Banking menu and then select Bank Deposits.
  2. On the Deposit To drop-down menu, select Account A.
  3. From the From Account column, choose Account B where the money is coming from.
  4. Enter the other necessary information.
  5. Once done, click on Save & Close.

You may also want to consider getting a report for your previous reconciliations. This way, you can easily review your past reconciliations to keep your books accurate.
