Reconciliation Beginning Balance Change Upon Transfer of QB to New Computer

I am using QuickBooks Pro 2014 and I recently downloaded the QB program from the original disc to a new computer and imported my company files. My bank account registers are fine, but my reconciliation beginning balance is way off.  A previous reconciliation discrepancy report lists the items that have been affected.  Those items are listing the payee name, but the check register is correct.  Does anyone know how to adjust those several items so that the beginning balance in reconcthat go back about a year?

Hello @TommyGr


I’m here to help you sort this out. First, you’ll want to access the last reconciliation report to make sure all details entered are equal. Here’s how:

 

  1. Go to the Reports menu.
  2. Click Banking, then choose Previous Reconciliation.
  3. Select the appropriate Account and Statement Ending Date.
  4. Select Display.
  5. Compare this report to past statements from your bank.


Once done, kindly re-enter or edit the affected items/transactions to correct the discrepancy. After doing this process, please check the reconciliation beginning balance. 


If the same things happen, try to perform the remaining steps in this article: Fix beginning balance issues in QuickBooks Desktop.  


I also added a link that contains a lot of information about banking: Help article

Hi MadelynC,

 

Thank you for your reply.  I went ahead and got a Previous Reconciliation report and everything there is fine.  The beginning balance, inputs and ending balance are all correct.  But when I go to Banking, then Reconcile, and I try to reconcile more recent transactions, it tells me that the beginning balance is a number that is way off the correct number.  When I get a Previous Reconciliation Discrepancy Report, it contains 6 transactions dating from 1/23/19 to 7/10/19 which list the Type of Change as Deleted.  Those 6 transactions are still listed when I go to Use Register, but the Payee name is left blank.  I had reconciled all those transactions in the past, so something must have happened when I moved my QB to the new computer.  Any thoughts?

 

Thank you.

Let's fix the beginning balance of your reconciliation, Tommy.

 

Good thing that you've already identified which transactions are causing discrepancies. All you want to do is individually mark them as reconciled since they were reconciled before. We call this as mini-reconciliation. This will update your beginning balance.

On the other hand, if you need quick references for QuickBooks, you can press F1 on your keyboard. This will show you the articles related to the section that you're working on.

 

Feel free to go back to this thread if you have other questions in mind. Stay safe!

The mini-reconciliation worked.  Thank you very much.
