Reconcile a partially paid invoice, bill or expense claim

Here's how to reconcile a partially paid invoice, bill or expense claim, when you haven't recorded the payment in Xero.

To reconcile a partially paid invoice, bill or expense claim:

  1. On the bank reconciliation screen, next to the bank statement line you want to reconcile, click Find & Match.

  2. Find and select the checkbox next to the invoice, bill or expense claim that you want to match with the bank statement line.
  3. Click Split.

    Can't see Split? Make sure you're trying to split the invoice, bill or expense claim. You can't split a payment transaction that you created when you recorded a payment directly on the invoice, bill or expense claim.
  4. Click Split to confirm.

    Splitting a transaction leaves an amount remaining that you can reconcile with the next statement line.

If you often reconcile partial payments, consider recording the amount of these payments directly on the invoice, bill or expense claim in Xero.

When you record a payment directly on an invoice, bill or expense claim, the payment is likely to match the bank statement line automatically so it's quicker to reconcile.
