How Reconciliation Works

DocuClipper reconciles the statements ensuring that no transactions are missing and that they have the right amounts. This is how reconciliation works:

  1. DocuClipper reads the start and end balance from the statement.
bank statement balances

2. Next, DocuClipper adds up all the credits and debits in the statement.

3. If “end balance” – “start balance” is equal to “credits” – “debits” then the statement is reconciled and DocuClipper displays a blue badge:

What does it mean when the job is “not reconciled”? #

Sometimes DocuClipper isn’t able to reconcile the statement. When this happens you’ll see a red badge:


Here are a couple of reasons that can prevent DocuClipper from reconciling the statement:

  1. The start or end balances have been detected incorrectly.
  2. DocuClipper wasn’t able to read the start or end balances.
  3. Balances are correct but there are missing or wrong transactions.
  4. DocuClipper can’t reconcile this statement type yet. E.g. different language, non-supported bank statements
  5. DocuClipper is experiencing issues when interpreting multi-account statements.
  6. Debit/Credit has been swapped.
