Undo a client’s reconciliation in QuickBooks Online Accountant

SOLVEDby QuickBooksQuickBooks Accountant Online1309Updated May 23, 2021

Learn how to undo reconciliations for your clients. This is only available for accountants who use QuickBooks Online Accountant.

If your firm uses QuickBooks Online Accountant, you have a special reconciliation tool. When one of your clients needs to edit or undo several transactions on a past reconciliation, it’s sometimes best to start over from scratch. You are able to undo their entire reconciliation and get a fresh start.

Your clients can also edit individual transactions on a reconciliation whenever they need to.

Undo an entire reconciliation

Before you start, you may want to download any attachments tied to the reconciliation. Undoing a reconciliation deletes all existing attachments.

Important: Be careful editing older reconciliations. Undoing a reconciliation also undoes all following reconciliations follow. So, if it's May and you undo January's reconciliation, you also undo February, March, and April. This can also cause errors. Start with the more recent reconciliation and work your way backward.
  1. Sign in to QuickBooks Online Accountant.
  2. Find and open your customer's QuickBooks Online company.

When you're in their company file:

Now, you and your client are ready to redo the reconciliation.
