QB matched a transfer to an open invoice incorrectly - how do I edit this back to reflect a bank transfer?

I’m glad you reached out for assistance with your bank transactions, Beth. Getting it coded properly in QuickBooks is very important for accurate bookkeeping.

 

Let me provide the steps on how to unmatch the transaction from the invoice and label it as a transfer. Here are the steps:

 

  1. Go to the Transactions menu and select Bank Transactions.
  2. Select the tile for the bank or credit card account you downloaded the transaction from.
  3. Proceed to the Categorized tab.
  4. Look for the transaction and click Undo under the Action column.

 

 

 

Once completed, the transaction will be returned to the For Review tab. At that point, you can categorize it appropriately as a Transfer.

 

Here's an article about this process for more details: Unmatch Downloaded Bank Transactions or Move Them to Another Account.

 

You can also check if there's a bank rule that automatically matches the transfer and edit or deactivate it so it won't happen again. Here's how:

 

  1. Proceed to the Rules tab.
  2. Check if there's something that's causing the automatic match or categorization. 
  3. Click the drop-down list beside Edit and select Disable.
