I have bills from 2015 that’s in AP which they have already been paid for but is still showing up in AP. I made it to an expense and did a credit memo for it. When I reconciled for the month, it is now showing up under my “uncleared checks and payments”. How do I clear those out of my “uncleared checked and payments” area in my reconciliation report?

Hello there, Kassidythao. 

 

All bills will show up in the Accounts Payable A/P account regardless if they're paid or not. If they are paid, bill payments will also show on the bank account.

 

There are a few reasons why a bill remains unpaid. It's possible that the payment was accidentally deleted, or a Check wasn't linked to the bill, or no payment was made at all.

 

To clear these transactions on the report, we can trace the bill payment. If the payment was deleted, we can recreate it. If it's recorded as Check, let's link it to the bill. After verifying, we can manually reconcile it in your bank's register. 

 

You also have the option to include it in your present's reconciliation. Otherwise, you'll have to undo the previous reconciliation to correct the ending bank's balance.

 

Here are a few articles that you can check out for more details about reconciliation: 

Let me know if you have further questions.

Thank you!!! I also have another question. I wired a certain amount of money to an event. The bank reversed it and corrected it as well. I just don't know why the correction was not reconciled. Any thoughts?

Hello @Kassidythao,

 

Good to see you here the QuickBooks Community. I’m happy to help and share information about Reconciling accounts in QuickBooks Online.

 

If your bank is connected to online bank feeds, you'll have to add it to QuickBooks. Otherwise, manually enter the transaction. Once done, you can reconcile your account with the reversed entry from the bank.

 

But if you have too many transactions to edit, you can prevent issues with your balances by contacting your accounting professional.

 

You can read through this article for more details in troubleshooting reconciliations:
