How can I reconcile general accounts from my bank statement?

I have for instance cash deposits that are already reconciled with invoices. How can I reconcile the general account concerned - which is not linked to a partner - from my bank statement?

This question has been included in the official documentation.

In the new Bank Statement Reconciliation (V8) you have the ability to reconcile other accounts than receivable and payable ones. For those accounts you need to reconcile (without adding a partner in the bank statement), you just have to tick Allow Reconciliation for the account concerned (menu Accounting > Configuration > Accounts > Accounts).

When you encode (or import) the bank statement, leave the partner empty in the bank statement line concerned. When you click the Reconcile button, all the unreconciled entries for all accounts which allow reconciliation will be displayed (and not only payable/receivable). Then you can filter on the account code to make your searches faster. Select the counterpart to be reconciled by clicking the + in front of the line, then click OK. The entries will now be reconciled. This should solve the clearing accounts of card payments, deposits, etc.

Filter box in Reconciliation screen

When you return to the bank statement, you can click the Journal Items button to display all reconciliations made from this statement.

In the latest RC leaving the partner blank actually results in an exception that states "Reconcilation can only be done for transactions against the same partner.". Not sure about the work-around other than just providing the partner for each transaction on the bank statement.

It must be forbiden to reconcile entry with different partners.

The partner is a auxiliary account. 

As far as I know you do not reconcile journal entries with different accounts ?


The batch reconciliation is a functionality lack I agree but it has to be done a different way

I fully agree with the fact that you do not reconcile different partners. My "seems okay now" was meant for the reconciliation of a general account without a partner.

Ok. Good to read it. Today these constraint have been removed totally from v8. Meaning you can do any kind of reconciliation :( This is a very dangerous regression.
