Q: My bank balance and Goodbudget Account balance don’t match. What should I do?

Your Goodbudget Account balances help you know what you have available to spend or budget with in real-life. Because you’ll make spending decisions based on your Goodbudget Account balances, it’s important that those Accounts accurately match what you have in your actual bank. 

Adjust your Account balances to make them match

If your Goodbudget Account and real bank balances become mismatched, you can create a one-time Account Adjustment in Goodbudget to get them to match again. 

If you’re on the web, click on the ‘Add/Edit’ button on the Accounts tab, and then update your ‘Current Balance’. Be sure to save your changes when you’re done.
