What is Bank Reconciliation?
Bank reconciliation involves comparing your record of transactions to those of the bank’s record of your transactions. This process is done by checking every record of yours to the records that the bank has.
Especially within the business world, it is difficult to keep all things accounted for. On some occasion outstanding checks will occur and those statements won’t show up on the bank statement because the bank isn’t aware of the issue yet. Also there may be electronic transfers that haven’t been obtained yet by your bank. Bringing all of these things into the open is what bank reconciliation is all about.
Why is Bank Reconciliation important?
Without bank reconciliation, you may not have a clear idea of how much cash is available in your account. You might have overdraft charges and without a clear understanding of what is in your bank account, bounce checks. With electronic check clearing, you don’t have much time to get funds into your account when you write checks.
