QB Issue Resolution:

In QuickBooks Online (QBO), changing or adjusting a reconciled transaction will affect your beginning balance for the next reconciliation. To fix this, you need to remove the status of the reconciled transaction before making any changes.

 

Here’s how:

 

  1. In QBO, go to the Accounting menu at the left pane to get to the Chart of Accounts.
  2. Locate the reconciled account, then tick View register under Action column.
  3. Find the expense transaction, then in the reconcile status column (indicated by a checkmark), repeatedly select the top line of the transaction to change the status (for reconciled, for cleared, and Blank for not reconciled or cleared).
  4. Hit Save.

 

Once the status is Blank, you can now make the necessary changes. To reconcile it again, follow the same steps above and change the status back to R. After that, continue to reconcile December.

 

Just in case, I’ll add these articles for future reference:
