Bank Reconciliation

Bank reconciliation is a process that generates a report that compares the existing bank balance adjusted by outstanding items (uncashed checks, missing withdrawals, missing deposits) to the cash ledger in the books of record for a business. The cash ledger is adjusted by unrecorded items including bank activity that has yet to be posted to the books (deposits, withdrawals and loan payments).
