Re: QB beginning balance doesn't match bank statement

Hello Bookie1,


Reconciliation is done to make sure that the account accurately reflects your business transactions. You did great re-adding the deleted deposit. Now, please manually mark it as reconciled. I'm happy to show you how to do this.


  1. Go to Lists at the top menu bar.
  2. Select Chart of Accounts.
  3. Double-click the bank account to open the register.
  4. Manually reconcile the deposit by checking it.
  5. Click Record.


Next, go to the reconcile window to verify the beginning balance.

  1. Select Banking at the top menu bar.
  2. Choose Reconcile.
  3. Review the beginning balance.


In addition, here's an article you can read to learn more about reconciliation: Incorrect Beginning Balance.
