Reconcile an account transaction without an imported bank statement

If you're missing a bank feed transaction or can't import a bank statement line to reconcile, you can mark the matching account transaction in Xero as reconciled. When you mark an account transaction as reconciled, we reconcile it with a dummy bank statement line we create for you. You'll need to turn on the Enable Mark as Reconciled option first, from the Account transactions tab.

Turn on Enable Mark as Reconciled option from the Account transactions tab

Turn on the Enable Mark as Reconciled option if you've never marked transactions as reconciled in this bank account before, or you've turned off the option.

  1. In the Accounts menu, select Bank Accounts.
  2. Click the bank account name that includes the transaction you want to mark as reconciled. You'll now be on the Account transactions tab.
  3. Click the question mark icon Image of the question mark icon. then select Enable Mark as Reconciled. (If you've already turned this on, you'll only have the Disable Mark as Reconciled option.)
