What is a Bank Reconciliation Statement?
A bank reconciliation statement is a summary of banking and business activity that compares an entity’s bank account with its financial records. The reconciliation statement outlines deposits, withdrawals, and other activity impacting a bank account. A bank reconciliation statement can be useful to prevent fraud.
Why Should I perform Monthly Bank Reconciliations?
Every business should perform a bank reconciliation each month. For example, your current bank account balance doesn't actually represent your available cash. If you have a few sizable checks outstanding, then your business checking account can easily go into negative. In order to avoid this, you should always perform a monthly bank reconciliation. By doing this, you can understand your cash flow and true cash position. As a result, a bank reconciliation is similar to balancing your checkbook. Therefore, doing a bank reconciliation can reveal erroneous or missing entries so you can be confident that your cash balance is correct.
