From the e-payment report, when you drill down to the Transactions sent to bank (unreconciled) category, select the failed transactions and click the Reset Status button.

The transactions will be moved to Ready for sending to bank. Then you can rectify the issues, if any, before sending them to the bank (in case of DBS) or exporting them (in case of banks supported for e-payments).

Transactions that have the mandatory bank details of the payee fall under the Ready for sending to bank category, in the e-Payments report. For example, for e-fund transfer (NEFT, RTGS) A/c no. and IFSC are necessary. Additionally, you can update the transactions under Transactions with incomplete information and Transactions with information mismatch (with master) categories and move them to the Ready for sending to bank category.

If you have recorded payment transactions with a bank ledger and a party ledger without necessary bank details, such transactions are displayed under the Transactions with incomplete information category. Necessary details are account number and IFS code. You can drill down to this category, provide the missing details for the transactions, and then move the transactions to the Ready for sending to bank category.

If you have modified the bank details saved in the party ledger while recording a transaction, such transactions are displayed under the Transactions with information mismatch (with master) category. You can drill down to the transactions in this category and update the voucher with the details provided in the party master. You can also choose to retain the bank details as is by clicking the Accept as is button. In either case, the transactions move to the Ready for sending to bank category.

The Transactions sent to bank (unreconciled) category includes all transactions exported or sent to bank from the voucher creation screen and from the e-Payments report.

On importing bank statements to TallyPrime, some transactions might appear in the Amounts not reflected in Company Books section of the Bank Reconciliation screen.

Cause   

  • The Bank Statement does not have the correct instrument number.
  • Instrument number is not specified in the Payment/Receipt voucher.
  • The transaction is not recorded in the books of accounts. For example, Bank Charges.

Solution

  • Check if the correct instrument number is mentioned in the bank allocation screen of the Payment/Receipt voucher.
  • In Bank Reconciliation screen, press Alt+Q (Reconcile Unlinked) to view the list of transactions with matching amounts.
  • Select the transaction using Spacebar and press Enter. The transaction will get reconciled.
  • Create a new Payment/Receipt voucher for the transaction (if a voucher for the same has not been recorded earlier in TallyPrime). Press Alt+J (Create Voucher) by placing the cursor on the respective transaction.
    If a transaction of the same details exist in the books, a message appears as shown below:

    If you click Yes, voucher creation screen appears. You can record the required transaction.
    If you click No, the existing transaction will appear in the Unreconciled Transaction. You can select the transaction and press Enter to reconcile it.
  • If a transaction of the same details does not exist, the voucher creation screen appears. Enter the transaction details.
  • Accept the screen. As always, you can press Ctrl+A to save.
