Reconciling credit card statement

george214 Member ✭✭

A credit card statement has not been reconciled in several years. I show a monthly transfer from my basic checking account, which is reconciled monthly, but have just left it at that. Now I would like to begin reconciling the monthly credit card statement again. Can I make an adjustment entry for 12/31/2022 and just skip forward from my last reconciliation, which was several years ago?

Thank you.

    That's your decision, it's your finances, but it can certainly be done

    After ignoring your account for years, I would highly recommend just trusting your bank/credit card company and accepting a balance adjustment to become current. Going forward, I would suggest you run a reconcile on your accounts upon receiving a monthly statement. I very rarely find a bank error or credit card charge that's erroneous, but it's happened in the past.
