Follow these steps to identify transactions causing the register to be out of balance:
  1. Print the Bank Register Report.
  2. Compare the report to the bank statement to determine which transactions are causing the register to be out of balance.
  3. Make corrections in the register as necessary:
  • Clear items found in the bank statement but not cleared in the bank register.
  • Add transactions to the bank register that are found on the bank statement but not found in the bank register.
  • Create bank adjustments as necessary.
Note:
  • If the bank is out of balance to the statement by a (Negative Amount), a Deposit Adjustment for the amount will bring the balance to zero.
  • If the bank is out of balance to the statement by a Positive Amount, a Payment Adjustment for the amount will bring the balance to zero.
