    • Two independently maintained records of a business’s cash
      • The company’s Cash account (T-Account, the book balance)
      • The bank statement
  • Differences between the two records generally arise because of timing differences.
    • Deposits were made but after the bank statement was printed and mailed.
    • Checks were written but have not cleared the bank when the bank statement was printed mailed.
  • Reconciliations ensure that the two records agree.
