There are several things you can do.
  • Run End-of-Year Closing process to be sure any adjustments to year end are reflected in the general ledger.
  • Double-check that all outstanding items are included in the transactions, especially any deposits made at the end of the month.
  • Run a transaction listing from the Processes tab for the reconciliation period and run a Journal History report for the checking account. Compare the two reports by checking each item off and making sure that all transactions are on both reports.
Tip: It is important to note that the check reconciliation is a tool which allows you to reconcile your checking account to the general ledger in FIMS. Since this is a tool, you can enter, edit and delete transactions from the checking account reconciliation transaction tab. Make sure all transactions affecting the checking account reconciliation are in the transactions tab and in the general ledger in the correct period. 

All of the items processed through accounts payable are included in the transactions. Gift deposits are included if you use the gift deposit form in the gifts module. General ledger transactions are included if you say yes to Create AP in the journal entry prior to posting.
