How do I reconcile payments created in Breww via the Stripe integration in my accountancy provider?

If Stripe is integrated with your accountancy provider

Users who have enabled Breww’s Stripe integration often have Stripe integrated with their accountancy provider (Xero, Quickbooks, Sage Accounting etc.) to take advantage of some of the features of Stripe’s accountancy integrations.

However, this can lead to Breww and Stripe creating the same payment in your accountancy provider in two different ways, making payment reconciliation tricky. Breww will upload the invoice and also the payment, whilst Stripe will create bank transactions ready to be reconciled against the invoice. This can mean you end up with an unreconciled bank transaction that can’t be reconciled, as the invoice has already been marked as paid by Breww.

If you’d like to keep Stripe integrated with your accountancy provider, we recommend configuring Breww not to upload your Stripe integration payments and instead letting Stripe import them. This way, Breww will upload just the invoice to your accountancy provider, and you can easily reconcile the bank transaction created by Stripe with the invoice uploaded by Breww.

You can configure Breww to do this by going to IntegrationsPaymentsStripe → Edit icon in the “General configuration” section → Uncheck the “Upload payments to accountancy provider” option.

If Stripe isn’t integrated with your accountancy provider

In this case, we recommend enabling the “Upload payments to accountancy provider” option and letting Breww upload the payments taken through Stripe to your accountancy provider.

Then to reconcile the Stripe fees, you can simply upload Stripe’s monthly invoice and allocate it to the correct account/nominal code.
