Year-end is quickly approaching. Be prepared for the year-end. Here is a 10-point checklist you should go through to keep your QuickBooks Online accounts in order and plan for the year-end processing.
Make sure all bank reconciliations are up to date. This includes credit card accounts as well. Review any unmatched items (both deposits and payments) that you would not expect to be outstanding. This may be the result of a duplicate entry.

Make sure all the customer payment items in Undeposited Funds account have not yet been deposited to the bank account. If all the deposits are already posted to the bank account, this account should show zero balance. Any balance in Undeposited Funds account (even after bank accounts are already reconciled) may be the result of a duplicate entry. Review income and account receivable accounts and resolve it.
A/R and A/P Balances on Cash Basis
Run the Balance Sheet on the cash basis accounting method. If the transactions were properly recorded, these two accounts should not show a balance in the Balance Sheet.
Make sure Employee Advances account is reconciled. This account should include the advances that are yet to be repaid or have not been deducted from the payroll.
