After account transactions from your bank have imported into DEAR, you need to reconcile them. The first step is to review what's imported and work out which way to reconcile it.

Your aim is to match transactions from your bank with transactions in DEAR.

  1. Go to Financials > Money Movement then click Bank Accounts
  2. Find the bank account you want to reconcile. Click Reconcile [number] items

  3. Review each account transaction imported from your bank. We refer to these as bank statement lines, and they're on the left of the Reconcile screen. 


Accept a Matched Transaction

  1. Check the statement line is matched with the correct transaction. 
  2. If DEAR has matched the statement line with the correct transaction in DEAR, click OK to accept the match and reconcile. 


Choose from other possible matches found

Sometimes DEAR finds more than one transaction (of the same amount and of a similar date) to match with the imported statement line. When this happens, DEAR matches the most likely transaction and provides a link to other transactions that are good alternatives.

If you don't want to accept the match DEAR has made, you can use the Other Possible Match Found link to select another possible match. Select the required match and click Reconcile.
