When I enter deposits from the bank, their dates are marked as the date I entered them into quickbooks rather than the date they were actually deposited. Can I fix this?

Hi there, orchidsbooks.

 

For reconciliation purposes, any deposits you received in your bank should also be recorded in QuickBooks on the same day. If you’re matching transactions from the bank to QuickBooks, the system will always use your QuickBooks transaction date. 


Since deposits were recorded on a different day, you can manually update their dates to match everything correctly. 


Moving forward, you might want to avoid recording deposits in QuickBooks. You can instead download your bank transactions directly. This way, you don’t need to match transaction and dates would follow what you have in your bank. 
 

Feel free to let us know if anything else comes up.

So are you saying that if a donation was made in February and I didn't record it until August that the donation's date is suppoed to be August? That's what happens when I reconcile and it seems to goof everything up.
