Your reconciliation start date is based upon one of the following:
- Your last reconciliation – if you've reconciled before then the start date will be the day after your last reconciliation
- Bank account start date – the start date is set in Bank > Edit Details link next to the account > Start Date field. This date should be set
- Reconciliation date – if you've just moved over to Tally and have been using previous accountancy software then you've most likely reconciled before; you can set the date to which you have previously reconciled up to by going to Bank > Edit Details link next to the account > Set the Reconciliation Date to the date that you previously reconciled up to, the start date will be the day after this
Start Date doesn't match your previous reconciliation end date
If you've found that your reconciliation start date doesn't match the end date of your previous reconciliation that it's likely one of the details above have been edited. Follow the steps below to correct this. Modify your reconciliation date to be the same as the end date of your last reconciliation. First click Bank > Reconcile > Previous Reconciliations and take note of the last reconciliation end date. After that go to Bank > Edit Details and check the start date is before the reconcile date, then change the reconcile date to be the same as your previous reconciliation end date. After that, click Update.
Please note that the bank account start date must be before your first bank transaction in Tally.
