6. Click on any of the listed numbers in the Difference (USD) column of the report to review details of Transactions causing the discrepancy and to derive potential reasons for the difference

Helpful Tips:

  • Reconciliation may be performed at various intervals throughout a period; daily, weekly, bi-weekly but are necessary/required prior to Month End Close
  • Resolving discrepancies may require collaboration with users across the Organization, so communication sooner rather than later is best practice
  • Transactions that are not posted to the General Ledger prior to Month End Close may be brought forward into the next Accounting Period
