Reconcile Bank Statements without starting balance ...


We are trying to do our first reconciliation after moving from SAGE.  We did a first reconciliations simply to match the opening balance.

Our problem now is that there are several transactions that are not showing up in our list.  This seems to be because they have already been reconciled.

Reconcile Bank Statements without starting balance ...

Most Accountants do not recommend using Opening Balance Equity transactions, especially if they are current year transactions. Understand that QBO automatically creates these OBE transactions when you connect your bank and credit card accounts.


It is better to create the "actual" accounting transactions in QBO. You can replace OBE transactions with a "real" transactions and then reconcile them accordingly. You should connect with your Accountant for guidance here before moving forward.
