Balance report

Reconcile your Stripe balance and download your categorized transaction history.

The Balance report is similar to a bank statement, helping you to reconcile your Stripe balance at the end of the month and providing an itemized CSV export of your complete transaction history. All transactions are shown in your settlement currency (after any foreign currency conversion).

The Balance report is most useful if you treat Stripe like a bank account for accounting purposes, reconciling the balance at the end of each month. If you have automatic payouts enabled and prefer to reconcile the transactions settled in each payout, see the Payout reconciliation report instead. Not sure? Check out our guide to choosing the right report.

To get started, use the controls at the top of the screen to select a date range.

The Balance summary section shows your starting and ending Stripe balance for the selected date range, along with a high level summary of your activity during the period. Your balance includes funds that are available, pending, and any reserved funds, if applicable.

The Balance change from activity section provides a more detailed breakdown of your transactions by reporting category. This section includes all transactions except for payouts that affect your balance, including charges, refunds, disputes, other adjustments, and fees.

The Payouts section provides the quantity and total amount of payouts to your bank account during the period. You can download a list of individual payout transactions by clicking the Download button.

Downloading data

You can download the data displayed in each section of the report as a CSV file by clicking the Download button in the upper right corner of that section. The Balance change from activity and Payouts sections allow you to download multiple types of reports:

  • Summary: This downloads data in CSV format exactly as you see it in the dashboard.
  • Itemized: This downloads the full list of individual transactions that are summarized in the dashboard.

In addition, you can quickly download itemized data for a single category of transactions by hovering over that category and clicking the Download button that appears.
