How to add and match bank feeds using Express Mode?

Step 1: Getting the downloaded transactions

  • Firstly, go to the Banking menu.
  • Click on Bank Feeds and then select Bank Feeds Center.
  • Now you will review how QuickBooks categorized the transactions, to review follow the steps given below:
  • (Your review required) Unmatched: In the related account in QuickBooks, the downloaded transactions don’t match any transaction.
  • (Changed made in Rules) Renamed: A new transaction using renaming rules is created in QuickBooks. Any transaction in the related account in QuickBooks doesn’t match the downloaded transaction.
  • (Auto) Matched: A match is found by QuickBooks between the downloaded transaction and the other transaction that is already in the related account.

Step 2: Matching the downloaded transactions

Any entries that are already in the related account, QuickBooks tries to match them to the downloaded transactions. QuickBooks tries to create a new transaction for you automatically if it can’t find a match. You need to review the matches before adding them to the register.

When QuickBooks tries to match it looks at the following:

Check numbers: whether the numbers match or not.

Amounts: Whether amounts are the same or not.

Date of recording the transaction in QuickBooks within a few days of the downloaded transaction clearing the bank.

Payees: It checks whether the payees are the same. If not, the payee in the downloaded transaction is identified by a renaming rule.

Make sure you make the connection if you know there’s a matching transaction in QuickBooks. Else, your bank won’t have a match the downloaded transaction and will remain pending. Even if the payment has been processed by your bank you will need to make the match.

You don’t need to do anything else to the transaction if you agree with the match QuickBooks made. When you select Finish Later, the matches will be made and added to the account register.

Unmatch the transactions if you don’t agree with the match. When you do this, the status of the downloaded transaction will change to Unmatched.

When you are unable to find a match

Here’s what to do when QuickBooks can’t find a matching transaction for one downloaded from your bank:

You may not have entered them into QuickBooks yet if transactions are too new. Enter the transactions into QuickBooks if this is the case. By doing this you may change the status of the downloaded transaction to Matched.

QuickBooks won’t match them if a downloaded transaction matches an already reconciled transaction. In the CLR column, there is a reconciled transaction having a checkmark.

There are occasions, though they are rare but may occur when QuickBooks downloads duplicate statements or transactions. The transactions won’t be matched again if transactions were downloaded to QuickBooks and have a lightning bolt in the CLR column. QuickBooks won’t match them even if the transaction number, amount, date and payee name are the same.
