Steps for users with payment accounts or QuickBooks merchants:

·         It should be noted that the statement date will be filled in automatically. Usually, this is assumed to happen 30 or 31 days after the statement date entered by the user for the previous reconciliation. User can change the date at will.

·         In addition, the opening balance will be auto-populated, which will be the sum of all previously processed transactions. The user is responsible for ensuring that the opening balance is equal to the opening balance according to the statement. 

·         The next step is to enter the corresponding statement balance in the Terminal balance section.

·         Users should click on the Locate Differences icon to know about available financial statements that will help users locate discrepancies and other reconciliation issues. There is an option for Cancel and Restart Matching tab in the Find Differences window.
