Adjusted Cash Balance Issues

August 16, 2021

Adjusted cash balance issues happen when the property balance(s) do not agree with transactions posted to the cash bank account. The database runs a check that involves the following process:

  • Property balances (only from properties linked to the current bank account)
  • Less unreconciled deposits
  • Less unreconciled receipts deposited after the reconciliation period
  • Plus unreconciled checks
  • Plus unreconciled eCheck or ACH batches and reversals
  • Plus unreconciled eCheck or ACH batches generated after the reconciliation period
  • Plus uncleared checks voided after the reconciliation period

The above screenshot shows the Adjusted Cash Balance number in the third column and it is under by $176.50. A Reconciliation Summary should have an Ending Balance, Cleared Balance, and Adjusted Cash Balance that match. This is a three-way reconciliation and commonly known as Triple Tied Out.
