Bank Register matches bank statement but balance sheet balance is off

I am running a company with USD and CAD currencies and one of my accounts which is now closed is showing the wrong balance on the balance sheet. I have reconciled the USD account in question from day 1 to close and I have the following:

1) The Bank Register matches the statements and ending balance is $0

2) When I go to the Chart of Accounts the balance also displays correctly at $0

3) When I run a balance sheet report for the period ending the month of the closure I would expect a $0 balance but I see a -$180k and change. Same amount is on my Trial Balance.

Any ideas how this could be??


Hi my first step would be to identify which period this fx adjustment was created in. In order to do that choose the balance sheet report to report for all dates and columns by year or by month. Once you find which period and hopefully it’s only one entry you’ll have a better idea what to do. It could be there is an exchange rate in that period that is wonky. 

Let me know if that helps!

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.
