Modified a check after reconciliation

I recently reconciled our checking account. A couple of days later, one of my colleagues needed to change the customer name on a particular check. She voided the original check and created a new one. The checks are identical other than the different customer name.

 

Do I need to re-do the reconciliation? Since the amounts are the same I was hoping save myself a couple of hours and just put a check mark next to the new check in the register.

 

I am using QB Desktop 2019 Contractor Edition

Modified a check after reconciliation

We can do a special reconciliation that will help you re-reconcile the recreate transaction, csoffice.

 

The mini or special reconciliation method uses an "off-cycle" reconciliation date to make a correction. This puts previously unreconciled transactions back without affecting the "cycle" that they follow. This assumes you know the ending balance from the most recent reconciliation. 

 

Here's how:

 

  1. Go to the Banking menu and select Reconcile.
  2. Select the bank account with the transactions you need to reconcile.
  3. In the Date of Statement field, enter date for an "off-cycle reconciliation." This date can be any date between your last reconciliation and the next scheduled one.
  4. Under the Ending Balance field, enter the balance of your last successful reconciliation. Then select Continue.
  5. From the Reconcile window, check off the transactions you are fixing and re-reconciling.
  6. Make sure the Difference field shows $0.00.
  7. Once done, select Reconcile Now.

If you need more  info from a past reconciliation to fix your current reconciliation, you can always run the Previous Reconciliation Report.

 

Just in case, I'll add this article for future reference: Learn the reconcile workflow in QuickBooks.

 

Leave a comment below if you have any other issues or concerns. I'm more than willing to assist. Take care and have a great day!
