Possible Reasons of mismatch :-

There are several reasons your account may not balance:

  1. The statement ending balance is incorrect.
  2. The bank has cleared a check or deposit with an amount different from that stated in the Banking Service, but you have not changed the cleared reconciliation amount accordingly.
  3. Check, deposit or return has wrong status. Item has cleared the bank but is still in Unpaid or in transit, or item has not been banked but marked cleared.
  4. A bank entry was made for the wrong amount.
  5. A check or deposit that appears on the bank statement has not yet been posted.
  6. A direct GL-JV passed into the bank account.

You use the Reconciliation tab to reconcile the balances and record adjustments.

Resolution :-

On the Reconciliation tab, review the each and every transaction and reconcile balances manually.

Use the Display, Transaction Type, and Sort By fields to differentiate between the outstanding deposits or withdrawals, also can sort them by date or transaction number through the filter

Reconcile balances and record adjustments:

  • Clear individual deposits and withdrawals, and reverse withdrawals.
  • Clear entire ranges of withdrawals or deposits that your bank has already processed.
  • Record and post a bank transaction that does not exist in Sage 300. Review the receipts for a selected deposit that has multiple receipts. You can also clear individual receipts within the selected deposit, if you set the deposit’s status to Reconcile by Deposit Detail. Click Save.

When the Out of Balance by field displays zero, the adjusted bank balance and the adjusted book balance are equal. This means that the bank account is reconciled, and you can post the bank reconciliation .Click Save.
