Bank Reconciliation Process
01. Equate the Deposits
Match the deposits in the business records with those in the bank statement. Compare the amount of each deposit recorded in the debit side of the bank column of the cashbook with the credit side of the bank statement and the credit side of the bank column with the debit side of the bank statement. Mark the items appearing in both the records.
02. Adjust the Bank Statements
Adjust the balance on the bank statements to the corrected balance. For doing this, you must add deposits in transit, deduct outstanding checks and add/deduct bank errors.
03. Adjust the Cash Account
Adjust the cash balances in the business account by adding interest or deducting monthly charges and overdraft fees. To do this, businesses need to take into account the bank charges, NSF(non-sufficient funds) checks and errors in accounting.
04. Equate the Balances
After adjusting the balances as per the bank and as per the books, the adjusted amounts should be the same. If they are still not equal, you will have to repeat the process of reconciliation again. Once the balances are equal, businesses need to prepare journal entries for the adjustments to the balance per books.
Once the balances are equal, our experts help companies to prepare journal entries for the adjustments to the balance per books. Timely reconciliation of bank accounts is very vital to ensure proper control and a sufficient balance of funds in the company.
