Bank Reconciliation Statement

A bank reconciliation statement is generally prepared to tally the entries made in the cash book and the pass book of any organization, company or business firm, at any particular date and thus reconcile the differences between the bank balances, favourable or unfavourable (overdraft), keeping cash book balance unchanged. Such a statement needs to be prepared at regular intervals, although it is not compulsory, to checks if any discrepancies have crept in.
