Financial Edge Tips

Reconciling your Bank Account


  1. Reconcile your bank account first by making sure your “out of balance by:” and “GL cash account(s) out of balance to statement by” is zero. If not, please follow the reconciliation procedures for FE to fix the problems.

  2. Press, “reconcile later “for now.

  3. Post all transactions in FE for the month you are trying to reconcile. Post all sub ledgers (Bank, Accounts Payable, Cash Management…).

  4. Go back to reconcile this account and press Filters, post status, and uncheck posted. Your screen should be blank. There should not be any “unposted” or” do not post” transactions. If your screen is not blank, then you need to troubleshoot the transactions that are on the screen.

Always reconcile after all the transactions are posted. Once reconciled, it is harder to fix the issues.
