Reconciled transactions are grouped together in this section.
If you notice a mistake in a group of transactions, you can unreconcile them. The transactions move back to the Unreconciled transactions section, where you can fix the mistake by reconciling them again.
We check for new Inland Revenue (IR) transactionsevery day, using IR's Transaction data services (TDS) feed. Any new IR transactions will automatically appear in your client's Data reconciliation page, ready for you to reconcile.
A client must be a Tax client to receive their TDS data.
When we receive the data
If a client's account has had any activity since we received the last file, we receive transactions for the client from IR. Any new transactions are received after every business day. So if there are new transactions, you'll see the data on Tuesdays to Saturdays, unless it's after a public holiday.
If you don't want to wait for the data
You can check for new transactions for all possible tax types (Income tax, Tax credits, Student loan and Working for families) at any time. Just click Refresh IR data on the top right of the Data reconciliation page.
