Undo Reconciliation

I am unable to find the reconciliation reports in my Accountant QBO account in order to undo them. Has anyone else faced this issue? How do get them to appear so I can undo the reconciliation without having to do it manually on my master admin account?

Thanks for reaching out to us, robtroy1818.


I can help you undo a reconciliation report in QuickBooks Online Accountant (QBOA).


Please follow the steps I've laid out below:

  1. Sign in to your QBOA account.
  2. Click Accounting on the left pane.
  3. Select Reconcile at the top.
  4. Click on History by account.
  5. Locate the reconcile report you want to undo and click on the drop-down arrow under the Action column.
  6. Choose Undo.
  7. Click Yes on the pop-up window to confirm.

Here's an article for the detailed steps: Undo a reconciliation using QuickBooks Online Accountant.


That should help you undo reconciliations without manually editing individual transactions from within the register. Let me know if you have other questions. Have a lovely day!

Thank you for the detailed steps! Unfortunately my problem is that no reports show up when I click on History and the account that I want to see.

Hello again, @robtroy1818.


Thank you for the clarification on why you're unable to undo reconciliation in your QBOA.


If you've already reconciled transactions in QuickBooks, then it should appear in the History by account window.  Let's try another way to access your reconciliation report. 


Here's how:


  1. Go to Reports tab and click Reconciliation Reports under For my Accountant.
  2. You will be routed again to the History by account window. Check if the reconciled account is there.
  3. If you see the account, let's go ahead and perform clearing cache to get a clean slate for your browser. You can also use a different browser since each browser uses a different cache data storage. This way, you can go directly to the reconcile window if you want to undo your reconciliation account.
  4. However, if you still can't see the account in the reconciliation report, let's go ahead and check your Audit Log report.
  5. The reconciled transaction should show, if not, then it could be that the account wasn't reconciled yet.


Keep me posted how it goes. I'll be on the lookout for your reply and if you have other questions about your reconciliation. Have a good one.

Under my action, I only see Print as an option. Does that mean I need to manually do each transaction?

Hi there, @mrmtx.


At this time, only QuickBooks Online Accountant users have the ability to Undo entire reconciliations using the steps provided by my colleagues above. The good news is, it's never been easier to get in touch with a QBO Accountant! By using Intuit's Find-An-Accountant portal, you'll be put in touch with a certified expert who would be more than happy to lend a hand with your Reconciliations. Just head to the link and search for a local professional with your ZIP code.


In the meantime, you can manually un-reconcile each transaction using the steps below:


Changing a Transaction's Reconciliation Status

  1. From QuickBooks Online, click the Gear icon (⚙) and select Chart of Accounts.
  2. Locate the bank account with the transaction needing un-reconciled, select View Register.
  3. Find the transaction on the list, and in the Status ✓ column, click to change the status from R (reconciled) to either C (cleared) or blank.


Doing this will remove the transaction from its reconciliation report and affect the total reconciled balance for the bank account. Check out our thorough guide on un-reconciling transactions for more information. Please keep in touch with me here should you have any additional questions or concerns, I want to ensure your success. Thanks for dropping in and have a wonderful rest of your day.

The only choice I have is PRINT.  No undo choice.

Undo Reconciliation

Hello there, @sharon12.


I'd like to share some information about the undo option in view register.


There's no undo option on the View Register page. The meaning of the "Undo a reconciliation" from view register is to manually edit the transaction to reconcile, it's also called as "un-reconcile" transaction.


Also, if you want to undo entire reconciliations, I encourage seeking help from your accountant. This way, they can offer you some advice about undoing transaction.


For more detailed information about undoing a reconciliation, you can read this article for your reference: How to Unreconcile a Transaction or Undo a Reconciliation.


Don't hesitate to leave a comment below. I'd be glad to answer if you have any additional questions.

Hello..Following your instructions, when I located the "ACTION" button, the only option I have is "print" . Never see "UNDO"

Good to have you here, discountinsurance.


The Undo option button is only available for the QuickBooks Accountant version. However, you can manually undo a reconciled transaction. Let me provide you the steps on how to do it. Here's how:

  1. From the Accounting menu, select Chart of Accounts.
  2. Locate the account and select View Register.
  3. Select the transaction you want to unreconciled.
  4. Review the check column. If the transaction is reconciled, you'll see an "R".
  5. Choose the box and keep clicking until it's blank.
  6. Select Save.

The transactions will then be removed from your reconciliation.


If you have any other concerns, please let me know. I'll be sure to get back to you.
