How bank reconciliation works

Bank reconciliation is the process of comparing your business financial records with billing, invoicing and other transactions on business bank statements to make sure they match. It helps you:

Save time

One automated process saves you hours. Snap receipts and invoices and upload them to Sage Accounting in a click. Then your data is matched to bank transactions automatically.

Control your cash

Easily and securely view potential transactions in one place, choose which ones to match, and apply rules so that you have complete confidence in your finances.

Improve accuracy

With a simple, automated process that cuts out the admin, it’s easy to reduce the chance of human error, view bank charges, and spot fraudulent activity.

Get the data you need, faster

Set up simple filters and search for transactions using invoice numbers, amounts, and contact references. View all potential transactions in one clear list so they’re easy to match with your financial records.

Match transactions automatically

Save time on admin with bank rules. Set up rules for incoming and outgoing bank transactions to prepopulate details and save time. Create and split bank transactions and quickly see where a bank statement line matches a rule.
