Hi there, lori_dz,

 

You need to undo the reconciliation since there isn't an option to edit the statement end date. Then, enter the correct closing date when reconciling the account.

 

While there isn't an option to edit the statement end date, you can undo the reconciliation. Then, make sure to enter the correct date when reconciling the account.

 

If you're using the QuickBooks Online Accountant version, you have the option to undo a reconciliation. Let me show you how:

  1. Click the Gear icon at the right top and pick Reconcile under Tools.
  2. On the Reconcile an account page, select History by account.

  3. Select the reconciled account and report period.
  4. Hit the arrow under Action to show more details.
  5. Select Undo under the View report drop-down list.

  6. Choose Yes to confirm the process, then Undo.

Otherwise, you need to manually edit each transaction by removing the "R" status. This removes the entry from the reconciliation.

 

Let me guide you through on how to accomplish this:

  1. Go back to the Gear icon at the right top.
  2. Select Chart of Accounts under Your Company.
  3. Locate the reconciled bank, then pick View register.
  4. Click the Filter icon.
  5. Filter transactions by reconciled and the date, then click Apply.

  6. Open each transaction, then click the "R" status until the box is empty.
  7. Hit Save.

Feel free to read through this article: Undo and remove transactions from reconciliations in QuickBooks Online for additional information and screenshots.

Upon sharing this solution, I still suggest consulting with your accountant. He/She might have specific instructions since this process will affect previously reconciled account through the current one.

 

Please leave a comment below if there's anything else you need. I'd be glad to help you out.
