Month End Reconciliation
At the end of the month, you must review and post one set of adjustment entries to Quick Books to account for:
Net GL Changes for the month in GoldFinch
Accrued AP for Received Not Invoiced
Misc. GL entries posted for discount, freight, chargeback expenses, etc.
To export Excel schedule:
Go to the GL Accounts.
Click on the All view.
Click on Export Month-End Reconciliation
Enter the Month End Date.
Select Export to Download and open the Excel file.
Ensure the "Total" row and the "Difference" column has 0 value, then use the End of Month Adj. Entries to post in QuickBooks.
End of Month Adjustment Amount for Accrued AP is the total Expected Cost changes for the month. To reconcile this amount, run GF1003 Inventory to GL Recon As of Date report for the end of the previous month, and the end of the current month, and then compare the Expected Costs between the two reports.
Expected Costs are the total of the Received Not Invoiced amount and the Shipped Not Invoiced amount.
