Hey, @davidlinkist.

 

The way to manually create a bank account within QuickBooks is creating a chart of account. Don't worry. It's easy as pie.

  1. Go to Accounting in the left-hand menu bar.
  2. Select Chart of Accounts.
  3. Click New on the right-hand side of the screen.

 

      4. Fill in the required field and any other information you'd like.

      5. Press Save and Close or Save and New.

 

Afterward, you'll need to import your transactions or create your transactions within QuickBooks through the Chart of Account you made. Below is a link on how:

I'm only a comment away if you need any more help. Have a splendid weekend!

Hello,

 

Thanks for the reply, I can solve the problem for uploading the balance "in QuickBook", but cannot update the amount in "Bank Balance" on the bank page. 

Please see the attached screenshot .

thanks a lot~

It's possible you skip to enter an opening balance, davidlinkist.

 

Let's create a journal entry to enter an opening balance. Then, take note of the date and amount of the bank account you've added.

 

Just a heads up, if you're unsure what accounts are best to use, you can reach out to your accountant.

 

Let me guide you with these steps:

 

  1. Click the + New button, and then select Journal entry.
  2. In the first line, select your bank account and add your opening balance in the DEBITS column.
  3. Select Opening Balance Equity for the second line.
  4. Enter the same amount.
  5. Click Save and close.

 

Afterwards, you'll have to mark the journal entry as reconciled. You can proceed to Step 3 in this article: What to do if you didn't enter an opening balance.

 

Once you're ready to reconcile the account, you can use this article as your guide: How to Reconcile an Account.

 

I'm always around if you still have other questions regarding reconciliation.
