Reconcile a payroll payment paid by direct deposit or check

Reconcile a bank statement line representing a payroll transaction paid by direct deposit (electronic transfer) or check (created in Xero). For example, reconcile a salary or tax payment.

To reconcile a payroll payment statement line:

  1. Find the bank statement line that represents the payroll payment you're reconciling.
  2. If the transaction matches automatically and is correct, click OK.

  3. (Optional) If the payment doesn't match:
    1. Click [#] Other Possible Matches Found to find the match from suggested transactions.
    2. If the payment still doesn't match, click Find & Match to find the matching payroll transaction to see a list of every unreconciled payment transaction.
    3. Select the checkbox next to the payment you want.
    4. Click Reconcile.
