Chapter: Chapter 5 – Bank Reconciliation Statement
Class XI NCERT Accountancy Text Book Chapter 5 Bank Reconciliation Statement is given below.
In chapter 4, you have learnt thatthe business organisations keep a record of theircash and bank transactions in a cash book. Thecash book also serves the purpose of both the cashaccount and the bank account and shows thebalance of both at the end of the period.
Once the cash book has been balanced, it isusual to check its details with the records of thefirm’s bank transactions as recorded by the bank.To enable this check, the cashier needs to ensurethat the cash book is completely up to date and arecent bank statement (or a bank passbook) hasbeen obtained from the bank. A bank statementor a bank passbook is a copy of a bank account asshown by the bank records. This enable the bankcustomers to check their funds in the bankregularly and update their own records oftransactions that have occurred. An illustrativebank passbook of a current account is shown infigure 5.1.
The amount of balance shown in the passbookor the bank statement must tally with the balanceas shown in the cash book. But in practice, theseare usually found to be different. Hence, we haveto ascertain the causes for such difference. It willbe observed that a bank statement/passbookshows all deposits in the credit column andwithdrawals in the debit column. Thus, if depositsexceed withdrawals it shows a credit balance andif withdrawals exceed deposits it will show a debitbalance (overdraft).
5.1 Need for Reconciliation
It is generally experienced that when a comparison is made between the bankbalance as shown in the firm’s cash book, the two balances do not tally.Hence, we have to first ascertain the causes of difference thereof and thenreflect them in a statement called Bank Reconciliation Statement to reconcile(tally) the two balances.
In order to prepare a bank reconciliation statement we need to have abank balance as per the cash book and a bank statement as on a particularday along with details of both the books. If the two balances differ, the entriesin both the books are compared and the items on account of which thedifference has arisen are ascertained with the respective amounts involved sothat the bank reconciliation statement may be prepared. Its format shown infigure 5.5.
Reconciliation of the cash book and the bank passbook balances amountsto an explanation of differences between them. The differences between thecash book and the bank passbook is caused by:
- timing differences on recording of the transactions.
- errors made by the business or by the bank.
5.1.1 Timing Differences
When a business compares the balance of its cash book with the balanceshown by the bank passbook, there is often a difference, which is causedby the time gap in recording the transactions relating either to paymentsor receipts. The factors affecting time gap includes :
5.1.1(a) Cheques issued by the bank but not yet presented for payment
When cheques are issued by the firm to suppliers or creditors of the firm,these are immediately entered on the credit side of the cash book. However,the receiving party may not present the cheque to the bank for paymentimmediately. The bank will debit the firm’s account only when these chequesare actually paid by the bank. Hence, there is a time lag between the issue ofa cheque and its presentation to the bank which may cause the differencebetween the two balances.
5.1.1(b) Cheques paid into the bank but not yet collected
When firm receives cheques from its customers (debtors), they areimmediately recorded in the debit side of the cash book. This increasesthe bank balance as per the cash book. However, the bank credits thecustomer account only when the amount of cheques are actually realised.The clearing of cheques generally takes few days especially in case ofoutstation cheques or when the cheques are paid-in at a bank branchother than the one at which the account of the firm is maintained. Thisleads to a cause of difference between the bank balance shown by thecash book and the balance shown by the bank passbook.
5.1.1(c) Direct debits made by the bank on behalf of the customer
Sometimes, the bank deducts amount for various services from the accountwithout the firm’s knowledge. The firm comes to know about it only whenthe bank statement arrives. Examples of such deductions include: chequecollection charges, incidental charges, interest on overdraft, unpaid chequesdeducted by the bank – i.e. stopped or bounced, etc. As a result, the balanceas per passbook will be less than the balance as per cash book.
5.1.1(d) Amounts directly deposited in the bank account
There are instances when debtors(customers) directly deposits money intofirm’s bank account. But, the firm does not receive the intimation from anysource till it receives the bank statement. In this case, the bank records thereceipts in the firm’s account at the bank but the same is not recorded in thefirm’s cash book. As a result, the balance shown in the bank passbook will bemore than the balance shown in the firm’s cash book.
5.1.1(e) Interest and dividends collected by the bank
When the bank collects interest and dividend on behalf of the customer, thenthese are immediately credited to the customers account. But the firm will knowabout these transactions and record the same in the cash book only when itreceives a bank statement. Till then the balances as per the cash book andpassbook will differ.
5.1.1(f) Direct payments made by the bank on behalf of the customers
Sometimes the customers give standing instructions to the bank to makesome payment regularly on stated days to the third parties. For example,telephone bills, insurance premium, rent, taxes, etc. are directly paid by thebank on behalf of the customer and debited to the account. As a result, thebalance as per the bank passbook would be less than the one shown in thecash book.
5.1.1(g) Cheques deposited/bills discounted dishonoured
If a cheque deposited by the firm is dishonoured or a bill of exchange drawnby the business firm is discounted with the bank is dishonoured on the dateof maturity, the same is debited to customer’s account by the bank. As thisinformation is not available to the firm immediately, there will be no entry inthe firm’s cash book regarding the above items. This will be known to the firmwhen it receives a statement from the bank. As a result, the balance as perthe passbook would be less than the cash book balance.
5.1.2 Differences Caused by Errors
Sometimes the difference between the two balances may be accounted for byan error on the part of the bank or an error in the cash book of the business.This causes difference between the bank balance shown by the cash bookand the balance shown by the bank statement.
5.1.2(a) Errors committed in recording transaction by the firm
Omission or wrong recording of transactions relating to cheques issued, chequesdeposited and wrong totalling, etc. committed by the firm while recording entriesin the cash book cause difference between cash book and passbook balance.
5.1.2(b) Errors committed in recording transactions by the bank
Omission or wrong recording of transactions relating to cheques depositedand wrong totalling, etc. committed by the bank while posting entries in thepassbook also cause differences between passbook and cash book balance.
5.2 Preparation of Bank Reconciliation Statement
After identifying the causes of difference, the reconciliation may be done inthe following two ways:
(a) Preparation of bank reconciliation statement without adjusting cash bookbalance.
(b) Preparation of bank reconciliation statement after adjusting cash bookbalance.
It may be noted that in practice, the bank reconciliation statement isprepared after adjusting the cash book balance, about which you will studylater in the chapter.
5.2.1 Preparation of Bank Reconciliation Statement without adjusting CashBook Balance
To prepare bank reconciliation statement, under this approach, the balanceas per cash book or as per passbook is the starting item. The debit balance asper the cash book means the balance of deposits held at the bank. Such abalance will be a credit balance as per the passbook. Such a balance existswhen the deposits made by the firm are more than its withdrawals. It indicatesthe favourable balance as per cash book or favourable balance as per thepassbook. On the other hand, the credit balance as per the cash book indicatesbank overdraft. In other words, the excess amount withdrawn over the amountdeposited in the bank. It is also known as unfavourable balance as per cashbook or unfavourable balance as per passbook.
We may have four different situations while preparing the bankreconciliation statement. These are :
1. When debit balance (favourable balance) as per cash book is given andthe balance as per passbook is to be ascertained.
2. When credit balance (favourable balance) as per passbook is given andthe balance as per cash book is to be ascertained.
3. When credit balance as per cash book (unfavourable balance/overdraftbalance) is given and the balance as per passbook is to ascertained.
4. When debit balance as per passbook (unfavourable balance/overdraftbalance) is given and the cash book balance as per is to ascertained.
5.2.1(a) Dealing with favourable balances
The following steps may be initiated to prepare the bank reconciliationstatement:
(i) The date on which the statement is prepared is written at the top, aspart of the heading.
(ii) The first item in the statement is generally the balance as shown by thecash book. Alternatively, the starting point can also be the balance asper passbook.
(iii) The cheques deposited but not yet collected are deducted.
(iv) All the cheques issued but not yet presented for payment, amountsdirectly deposited in the bank account are added.
(v) All the items of charges such as interest on overdraft, payment by bankon standing instructions and debited by the bank in the passbook butnot entered in cash book, bills and cheques dishonoured etc. arededucted.
(vi) All the credits given by the bank such as interest on dividends collected,
etc. and direct deposits in the bank are added.
(vii) Adjustment for errors are made according to the principles of rectificationof errors. (The rectification of errors has been discussed in detail inchapter 6.)
(viii) Now the net balance shown by the statement should be same as shownby the passbook.
It may be noted that treatment of all items shall be the reverse of the aboveif we adjust passbook balance as the starting point.(see illustration 3)
The following solved illustrations will help you understand dealing withfavourable balance as per cash book and passbook.

5.2.1(b) Dealing with overdrafts
So far we have dealt with bank reconciliation statement where bank balanceshas been positive – i.e., there has been money in the bank account. However,businesses sometimes have overdrafts at the bank. Overdrafts are where thebank account becomes negative and the businesses in effect have borrowedfrom the bank. This is shown in the cash book as a credit balance. In thebank statement, where the balance is followed by Dr. (or sometimes OD) meansthat there is an overdraft and called debit balance as per passbook.An overdraft is treated as negative figure on a bank reconciliation statement.The following solved illustration will help you understand the preparation ofbank reconciliation statement when there is an overdraft.
On March 31, 2005, Rakesh had on overdraft of Rs. 8,000 as shown by his cash book.Cheques amounting to Rs. 2,000 had been paid in by him but were not collected by thebank.

5.2.2 Preparation of Bank Reconciliation Statement with Adjusted Cash Book
When we look at the various items that normally cause the difference betweenthe passbook balance and the cash book balance, we find a number of items,which appear only in the passbook. Why not first record such items in thecash book to work out the adjusted balance (also known as amended balance)of the cash book and then prepare the bank reconciliation statement. Thisshall reduce the number of items responsible for the difference and have thecorrect figure of balance at bank in the balance sheet. In fact, this is exactlywhat is done in practice whereby only those items which cause the differenceon account of the time gap in recording appear in bank reconciliation statement.These are as (i) cheques issued but not yet presented, (ii) cheques depositedbut not yet collected, and (iii) due to an error in the passbook. The step wisepreparation of bank reconciliation statement is shown in figure 5.4.
