An overview of an Account Reconciliation task

Modified on Tue, 10 Jan 2023 at 10:42 AM

Below is an example of a typical account reconciliation document.  This can vary depending on your own company's specifications and the type of reconciliation you are performing.  See Account Reconciliation Types for different examples of reconciliations.

1. At the top of each document, there is a row of action buttons. These change depend on the workflow status and the configuration of the document you are working on. 

2. The Header data area is where you will find key information about the task. Because Account Reconciliation tasks are created automatically, you will not be able to change or amend the Header Data.

  • Header data include the Company code, document template, information about approvers and the period being dealt with. 

           In the yellow bar, you will find more information about completing the task.

  • Account Details includes the Account Number, Name and the Profit Center.
  • Balances provide the balances you need to complete the reconciliation, such as the Closing Balance and Unreconciled Balance.
  • Workflow names the preparer, approvers where necessary and the due date.

3. The central panel is where you find additional instructions in the form of attachments.

You can also add supporting comments and attachments of your own.

Under this is the Action log. Track the document workflow and other actions performed by users and the system. 

4. The Linked Documents area on the right shows any prior period tasks so you can see what was done last period.  This example also shows an archived journal entry. It also shows any Successor tasks, which can only be started once this task is completed. Here other linked documents will also appear such as journals that you create from the reconciliation task.

5. At the bottom of the page, you will see the Row data. This data is key to Account Reconciliation and will be dealt with separately.
