Enter the Bank Statement Balance.

Tab to the “C” (Cleared Bank) box and click on it; a “check mark” is automatically inserted for each cleared item that appears on the Bank Statement.


Make whatever adjustments or corrections are necessary to Checkbook Register to reconcile. The “Difference” amount is $0.00 when the Bank Statement and the Checkbook Register are in balance.


When the Difference is $0.00, close the “X” in the upper right-hand corner to close the Reconcile Checkbook overlay screen. After you close the screen, a Balance Confirmation prints automatically showing the Company, the bank account and the zero balance. Staple the confirmation to your bank statement and file.

Repeat these steps for each of your bank accounts.
