  • A payment which has been edited in Clio will be treated as being deleted and then reapplied with the edits when syncing to Quickbooks.

Following the steps below for the original payment will resolve this.


This transaction has been deposited. Quickbooks Online will not allow Clio to make changes to a synced payment that has already been deposited.

  2. Unlink the transaction/payment by changing or deleting it on Quickbooks Online from the bank account. 
  3. From there, this payment should return into the undeposited funds section in Quickbooks 
  4. Make necessary modifications in Clio if it needs to be reflected in Quickbooks Online.
