how to undo bank feeds

My account was reconciled before I tried bank feeds. But now the amount in the bank and qb are different. Can I undo bank feeds?


Hello there, goh,

You need to undo the entire reconciliation by manually editing each transaction. This way, you can go back to your bank feeds and match the transactions.

When you connect your bank with QuickBoooks, it will automatically create an opening balance. This is one of the reasons why the amounts are different.

You can delete the opening balance from the register to fix the issue without undoing a reconciliation (see openingbalance.png).

If you still want to undo the reconciliation, follow the steps listed below:

  1. Go to the Gear icon at the top.
  2. Under Your Company, click Chart of Accounts.
  3. Locate the appropriate account for the transaction.
  4. From the Action column, click View Register.
  5. Select the transaction to edit.
  6. Under the reconcile status column (indicated by a check mark), repeatedly click the code to change the status of the transaction.
  7. Click Save.

Feel free to read through this article for additional information: How to unreconcile a transaction or undo a reconciliation.

Once done, you can go back to your bank feeds and review the deposits. Then, match them to the manually existing entry to avoid duplicates.

Here's how:

  1. From the left panel, select Banking.
  2. Go to the In QuickBooks tab.
  3. Locate the transaction, then click Undo.

Please refer to this article for the detailed steps: How to add and match downloaded banking transactions.

I also recommend consulting with your accountant for guidance before making any changes in your company file. He/she might have specific instructions about how to properly handle reconciliation differences.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
