On a particular date, reconciliation of our bank balance with the balance of bank passbook is called bank reconciliation. The bank reconciliation is a statement that consists of:
● Balance as per our cash book/bank book
● Balance as per pass book
● Reason for difference in both of above
This statement may be prepared at any time as per suitability and requirement of the firm, which depends upon the volume and number of transaction of the bank.
In these days, where most of the banking transactions are done electronically, the customer gets alerts for every transaction. Time to reconcile the bank is reduced more.
