How to make sure your manual bank account reconciles with the balance at the bank

Updated this week

What is a manual bank account?

If you import your bank transactions into Farm Focus as a CSV or QIF file, you have a manual bank account.
TIP: If you are unsure you can check this in the settings - bank accounts screen. 

Make sure you are using a QIF file (dd/mm/yyyy) for BNZ bank imports.

You will be reminded when the balance needs to be entered with a notification displayed in the needs action screen.

  1. Click on the notification to be directed to the Balancing screen.

  2. Click on Enter Balance. A field will appear to enter your closing balance.

  3. Type in the closing balance from your bank statement or internet banking.

When your bank account is balanced
