    Back in the day when I did Accounting the trick was with cheques which bounced. Also remember what's normally debit and credit for you is vice versa in the ledgers of your Bank. (The institution, not the ledger entry)

    You need to complement your books with those of the bank. Meaning, what's showing on the bank statement and not in your books should be documented, and vice versa.

    what do you mean?...do you mean that I should "less" the deposits and "add" the checks issued and service charge?...

    No. If the bank statements say "Deposits" and "Withdrawals" or whatever then it's fine. If the Bank statement also has "Debit" and "Credit" then you need to remember they have to switch around.

    i'm sorry sir....but I think this problem doesn't involve any bank statement...the needed are the equal balance of the checkbook and the bankbook after adding or subtracting the deposits or the checks issued...this reconciliation statement is for the owner of the checkbook and not for the bank...reconciliation statement is a statement putting an agreement the bank statement balance and the checkbook balance...

    please correct me if i'm wrong...i would really appreciate it...thanks...

    Kuru, you seem confused with SIMPLE terminology; or your English is
    not good enough to understand; can you find someone to help you
    understand what the 2 links that Janvdl gave you are saying:
    EVERYTHING you need to know is clearly stated in these 2 sites.

    YES, it DOES involve a bank statement: a reconciliation means you are
    trying to make the bank statement AGREE with the statement YOU made
    up as you were recording deposits and checks.
