Total available + TBB doesn't match TOTAL Budget
I'm struggling with an extra $335.45 I'm having in my TBB column.
I followed the instruction I found in the forum to reconcile my bank accounts and compare the total with "Total available" for the next month + TBB. And it doesn't match. I still have $335.45 extra
My Total available (for march) = 8441.19
To be budgeted = 507.97
Budget in the left column = 8613.71
All accounts are reconciled and I have no uncleared transactions.
It is tough to keep in mind not to spend an extra $335.45
Please advise what can I do to adjust the numbers.
I had something like this happen to me when I used the Mobile app to enter transactions and didn't realize that I had used a + for a transaction instead of a - for the transaction. That left a positive balance I didn't really have. On the web version it is a little more obvious with separate columns for Inflow and Outflow.
You also have to include funds that are supporting future budget entries (Budgeted In Future header).
Cash in Accounts = TBB + TA + BIF
Be aware that Total Available (TA) is misleadingly decreased by any credit overspending. It's best to verify this stuff in next month's area where that is not a factor.
Thank you for replies.
I will answer all the questions in a single reply
- All my accounts are linked and all my expenses are automatically imported. I don't add transactions manually.
- I have two credit card accounts with a negative balance -$430.87 and -$4.58. If I add only positive balances then the discrepancy will be even bigger.
- Budgeted in the future is $0
Here is how my account looks
Thank you for your effort.
Is there a way to adjust my TBB without changing a balance in linked accounts? Adding an "adjustment" transaction doesn't seem to help.
