Step by Step Solution

Step-by-Step SolutionStep 1: Definition of the bank reconciliation statement

It is a statement that shows the difference between the bank account balance and the company’s books.

Step 2: Some examples of timing differences

  • When a business writes a check, it immediately deducts the amount in its checkbook

and Cash account. The bank, however, does not subtract the check from the company’s

account until the bank pays the check a few days later. It would affect the bank account balance.

  • When a company deposits cash in its account, it immediately adds the cash receipt to the

chequebook and Cash account. The bank, however, may take a day or two to add deposits

to the company’s balance. It would affect the book side of reconciliation.

  • EFT cash payments and EFT cash receipts are often recorded by the bank before a company learns of them. It would affect book side reconciliation.
