Reconciliation Sample Form



If Your Reconciliation Doesn't Balance
If your bank reconciliation does not balance you will need to find what the problem is.

Here are 4 steps to follow:

  • Step 1: Check that every amount credited on your bank statement have been ticked off in your cashbook as a deposit.

  • Step 2: Check off that every amount debited on your bank statement has been ticked off in your cashbook as a check that has been paid.

  • Step 3: Make sure you have brought into your cashbook all items appearing on your bank statement that the bank has put on there without you knowing. These will involve bank charges, direct deposits, etc.

  • Step 4: Tally it all up and it should balance.
