Reconcile a batch payment
The way you reconcile a batch payment in Xero depends on how your imported bank statement lines appear in Xero.
Reconcile a batch payment to one statement line
If you uploaded the export batch file to your bank, the corresponding bank statement line imported into Xero may only show one statement line.
This statement line will total the bills in your batch that your bank paid.
Reconcile a batch payment that is greater than the imported bank statement line
If your batch payment transaction is greater than the imported bank statement line, your bank may not have been able to pay one (or more) of the bill payments in the batch. This could happen if the bank account for a customer is closed.
To fix this follow these steps:
- Work out which bill hasn't been paid through your bank.
- Delete the bill from your batch.
- Match the bank statement line with the Xero batch transaction.
Reconcile multiple statement lines with one batch payment
If your statement lines have come through individually, follow these steps:
Delete the batch so that the payment is removed from all the bills.
Then use Find & Match to reconcile the bank statement lines with the bills.
