Short Answer

(Bank Reconciliation and Adjusting Entries) The cash account of Aguilar Co. showed a ledger balance of $3,969.85 on June 30, 2017. The bank statement as of that date showed a balance of $4,150. Upon comparing the statement with the cash records, the following facts were determined.

1. There were bank service charges for June of $25.

2. A bank memo stated that Bao Dai’s note for $1,200 and interest of $36 had been collected on June 29, and the bank had made a charge of $5.50 on the collection. (No entry had been made on Aguilar’s books when Bao Dai’s note was sent to the bank for collection.)

3. Receipts for June 30 for $3,390 were not deposited until July 2.

4. Checks outstanding on June 30 totaled $2,136.05.

5. The bank had charged the Aguilar Co.’s account for a customer’s uncollectible check amounting to $253.20 on June 29.

6. A customer’s check for $90 (as payment on the customer’s Accounts Receivable) had been entered as $60 in the cash receipts journal by Aguilar on June 15.

7. Check no. 742 in the amount of $491 had been entered in the cash journal as $419, and check no. 747 in the amount of $58.20 had been entered as $582. Both checks had been issued to pay for purchases and were payments on Aguilar’s Accounts Payable.
