Bank Balance

Whoever did our accounting prior to my starting here did not reconcile correctly so I would have to go back years to fix this problem which I dont have the time or documents to do that.  I tried just doing a journal entry but my balance sheet is way off... I need help please!!!

Bank Balance

Hi there, 


Reconciling your accounts can be a lengthy process. Don't worry, I got your back. I'll be happy to give you a hand with making sure you have a $0 balance.


Based on what you've described, you'll have to go through your reconciliation and make sure the transactions are matching your bank statements for that period. At the end of your reconciliation, the difference between the ending balance in QuickBooks and your bank statement should be $0.00. If there's still a difference, your accounts still aren't balanced. Here's how to fix it: Fix issues while you’re reconciling

So that would mean I would have to undo reconciliations are far back as maybe 5 years?  By the looks of it, they have never had a $0 balance when reconciling.  They just continued like that and even stopped reconciling all together at one point.
