If Figured detects that your tracker balances for sales or purchases does not match what is in your accounting software, it will give you a notification on the affected tracker for you to look at and fix.

From here, you can either use one click reconciling to import transactions added to your accounting software which are not in Figured, or you can read below on how to manually reconcile.

Click Resolve now to view the details of the inconsistent balances. The process is the same for any livestock, wool or related tracker.

On the inconsistent balances screen seen below, you’ll see the balance in Figured and the balance in your accounting software. Any transactions in Figured included in these amounts will be listed here.

Click on the blue Total in **** link, which will link you directly to a transaction summary report in your accounting software for the account in question.

In Figured you can also create a contra for the transaction in question. Click Add New Transaction, then select the appropriate transaction type.

Complete the required fields with details and amounts that match the transaction in your accounting software.

Take note of whether your transactions are tax inclusive or tax exclusive as per the record on your accounting software, and that the total at the bottom matches what's on your account.

NOTE: Ensure the Post to box remains un-ticked as this transaction already exists in your accounting software, then click save transaction.

If you have multiple sales in your accounting software which aren’t yet in Figured, you can enter multiple transactions via a multi-line transaction to ensure everything balances.

The same theory applies for both sales and purchase transactions.

Once the appropriate transactions have been added, the inconsistent balances message will disappear.

Posting to your accounting software in error

When adding actuals in your trackers, if you’ve accidentally ticked the box Post to (and this has duplicated your livestock transactions) the easiest way to resolve this is to delete the livestock transactions in Figured then re-enter them, ensuring the Post to box remains un-ticked.

Then manually sync your account with your accounting software as above.
