quickbooks balance does't match bank balance

I have my checking, savings and some credit cards attached to quickbooks, when I've reconciled the balance on my quickbooks doesn't match the balance on my actual account. How can I fix this?

I've been using it for two years and have never cared about it,  at the beginning I used to enter expenses manually and now I do it thru the bank, I don't know if that makes a difference

quickbooks balance does't match bank balance

Everything that you enter in QuickBooks Online matters, onesourcecarpet.


There are different reasons why the Bank balance and In QuickBooks balance don't match. It could be that:

  • the beginning balance in QuickBooks Online is incorrect.
  • there are transactions that were entered incorrectly or duplicates.
  • previously reconciled transactions were edited or deleted.

If this is your first time reconciling the account, here's a link that you can use as a guide to correct the beginning balance: Fix beginning balance issues during your first reconciliation in QuickBooks Online.


If you've previously reconciled the affected account, here's a different link that you can use for reference: Fix beginning balance issues if you've reconciled the account in the past QuickBooks Online.


Aside from those links above, here are some additional references regarding the reconciliation:
