Adjusting Closing Date in QuickBooks Online


If a payment fails to sync from MineralTree to QuickBooks Online due to the error "Account Period Closed" (you can find the error descriptions by running the "Payment Sync Failures" report from the REPORTS tab), this means that the Closing Date in QuickBooks Online is set to a date after the date(s) of the payments trying to sync.  

To allow the payments to sync, you need to temporarily lift the Closing Date restriction in QuickBooks Online.  To do this,

1 -- Go to * --> Account and SettingsScreen_Shot_2018-01-11_at_3.33.17_PM.png

2 -- On the next screen, choose "Advanced" on the left and then view the Closing Date under "Accounting".  Note that payments with dates before the Closing Date will fail to sync from MineralTree to QuickBooks Online.  To temporarily suspend the Closing Date function, simply uncheck the box next to "Close the books".  


3 -- Reach out to Support to have the payments re-synced.  After they've synced, you can check this box again.

  • In our QBO Account settings, there is not a check box next to "Close the books" to simply uncheck.  We use Quickbooks Plus Online.

  • Thank you Laura!  We will review how this functionality is different in QuickBooks Plus Online and work to modify this page.
