QuickBooks Bank Reconciliation
(New York City)
Bank Reconciliation-has not been performed in two years
I started assisting a small business with their bookkeeping records. Apparently all the entries have been recorded in Quickbooks but no bank reconciliations have ever been done since it was set up in Jan. 2009.
Can I go back and reconcile in Quickbooks, month per month? I have all the bank statements and everything else seems to be in order.
I need to supply them with a General Ledger, soon and this is the only way to get a somewhat accurate report. What do you suggest I do?
Thank you in advance.
Yes you can go back and start doing the reconciliations. One of the great features of QuickBooks is it does not close off access to prior years when you start a new year.
After you have reconciled a period, I would go in and set the close date
so entries in your reconciled period can't be changed.
Good Luck!P.S. I would like to remind you there is a difference between information and advice. The general information provided in this post or on my site should not be construed as advice.
