Qbwin.log: Verify Account Balance failed

Verify Data fails and this message is in the Qbwin.log:

verify: c (###) : CHECKPOINT: ####: Fri Jun xx 07:09:03 Error: Verify Account Balance failed. Account = Inventory Asset. Ref = ##. Home - Calc bal = ###,###.## . List bal = ###,###.##

How to fix it

For QuickBooks 2015 and newer:

  1. Run rebuild.
  2. After the rebuild finishes, run the verify again. This should resolve the issue.
  3. If you are still continuing to see the error, try the steps in For QuickBooks Desktop 2014 and earlier.

 For QuickBooks 2014 and earlier:

  1. Re-sort the Chart of Accounts list.

    2. Place a checkmark in the Include Inactive (or Show All) checkbox (At the bottom).
    3. Click View in the menu bar and select Re-sort List.
    4. Click OK on the message Are you sure you want to return this list to its original order?
  2. Verify the company file again.  If you see the error exists, continue with the next step.
    1. Create a new account and merge the damaged account into it.
    2. Verify the company file to confirm the error has been fixed.
