Learn how to undo reconciliations for your clients. This is only available for QuickBooks Online Accountant.
As a QuickBooks Online Accountant user, you have a special reconciliation tool. If one of your clients needs to edit several transactions on a past reconciliation, it’s sometimes best to start over from the beginning. Follow these steps to undo the entire reconciliation and get a fresh start.
Your clients can also edit individual transactions on a reconciliation whenever they need to.
How to undo a reconciliation
Before you start, you may want to download any attachments tied to the reconciliation. When you undo it, you'll also delete these attachments.
|Important: This is a powerful tool. Be careful editing older reconciliations. Undoing a reconciliation also undoes all following reconciliations after the Reconciled on date. If your client reconciles their current account every month and you undo a reconciliation from three months ago, you’ll also undo the following two months.|
