Use the Balance Adjustment tool on the Banking toolbar. Think of the Balance Adjustment a General Journal entry between a Bank Account and a Category. Use the Balance Adjustment to record adjustments to your Bank Accounts, including service charges and corrections.
When using the Balance Adjustment tool, keep the following in mind:
Balance Adjustments are permanent. You cannot Void or Delete a saved Balance Adjustment. To correct an error, you must enter another Balance Adjustment.
Balance Adjustments allow you to select only one offset Category. For payouts with splits, use a Misc. Check or Make a Payment to Other.
When using a Balance Adjustment in conjunction with a General Journal entry, you may want to create a clearing account for use on the General Journal entry, then use the Balance Adjustment to affect the Bank Account, using the clearing account as the offset.
To enter a Balance Adjustment:
1. Select the Balance Adjustment tool. Enter the Reference Number, Date, and Bank Account, as appropriate.
2. Enter either a New Balance for the account, or the amount of the adjustment.
3. Specify an offset Category, using the Category QuickPop.
4. Click the OK Button to Save the Balance Adjustment.
