    Close Off a bank reconciliation

    Closing Off a bank import allows you to confirm the reconciled bank balance at a given date. This can be against a bank statement or an online balance. Closing off provides confirmation that at the set date all transactions in the bank account have been accounted for and reconciled.

    Prior to a Close Off all imported bank transactions must be reconciled, but there may be outstanding unreconciled Infusion transactions. For example, if a supplier invoice has been paid by cheque but it is yet to be presented.  

    After a close off, bank files with activity prior to the Close Off date are not able to be imported.

    Close Offs tab

    The Close Offs tab provides a list of close offs and is a useful tool when auditing an account.

    Time frames can be readily isolated and comparisons can be made to general ledger accounts in a bid to find where an error has occurred. The total of the Close Off balance and Unpresented Transactions on the Close Off date should match the General Ledger account for the same date.

    Wrong closing balance or date

    Unreconciled bank transactions

    If there are outstanding bank transactions to reconcile, a notification displays on the Close Off.  The Close Off will not be able to proceed. Reconcile all outstanding bank transactions and Close Off again.
