I need to undo several months of reconciliations. What it the easiest way to do that?

Hi there, @Anonymous.

 

I'm here to help undo your reconciliations in QuickBooks Online (QBO).

 

If you wish to undo your previous reconciliation, you may need edit each transaction manually. You may use your bank statement or reconciliation report to identify the transactions you need to edit. 

 

Here's how:

 

  1. Go to the Gear icon.
  2. Select Chart of Accounts under Your Company.
  3. Locate the appropriate account for the transaction.
  4. From the Action column, select View Register (or Account History).
  5. Identify the transaction to edit.
  6. In the reconcile status column (indicated by a check mark), repeatedly select the top line of the transaction to change the status of the transaction.
  7. Select Save.

However, if you have many transactions to edit, you may contact your accountant and ask your accountant to undo the reconciliation for you. QuickBooks Online Accountant (QBOA) gives you the ability to undo reconciliations without manually editing individual transactions.

 

For additional information on how to undo a reconciliation using QuickBooks Online Accountant, you may check this article: How to undo a reconciliation using QuickBooks Online Accountant.

 

Feel free to add a comment below if you have any other reconciliation concerns. Wishing you continued success!

OR

then log in and click the little briefcase icon to get to the accountant tools

click reconcile, click the choice upper right for historical recons

select the account and in the listing the selection arrow has an undo recon or delete recon option

Finally a suggestion that actually works.. thanks Rustler.. I'm shocked that Quickbooks Online makes you go through loop holes just to delete a reconciliation. If an "Accountant" login can delete the reconciliation report, there is no reason why an Admin login cannot do the same.

Accountants don't really need the Undo as much as non-accountants who don't understand that you should not click Finish Now and ignore the warning that says:

" Hold on! Your difference isn't $0.00 yet.
You aren't ready to reconcile yet because your transactions in QuickBooks don't match your statement. When they match, you'll have a difference of $0.00. Help me find the problem

If you'd still like to proceed, confirm the following below, and then click Add adjustment and finish."

You're Welcome

 

I agree with what you are saying, unfortunately when intuit laid out the functions/menus, it seems they didn't think so.
