In the bank reconciliation statement, the opening balance as per bank and cashbook is $4,540 and $2,800. You add the outstanding deposit and deduct the outstanding checks to find the adjusted balance on the bank side. You add rent receipts and note collection to the book balance on the book side. After this, you deduct the NSF check, incorrect recording of the check, EFT payment, and service charge. After making these adjustments on both sides, you got the adjusted balance of $4,310.
