BANK RECONCILIATION AND RELATED JOURNAL ENTRIES The book balance in the checking account of Lyle’s Salon as of November 30 is $3,282.95. The bank statement shows an ending balance of $2,127. By examining last month’s bank reconciliation, comparing the deposits and checks written per books and per bank in November, and noting the service charges and other debit and credit memos shown on the bank statement, the following were found:

  1. (a) An ATM withdrawal of $150 on November 18 by Lyle for personal use was not recorded on the books.
  2. (b) A bank debit memo issued for an NSF check from a customer of $19.50.
  3. (c) A bank credit memo issued for interest of $19 earned during the month.
  4. (d) On November 30, a deposit of $1,177 was made, which is not shown on the bank statement.
  5. (e) A bank debit memo issued for $17.50 for bank service charges.
  6. (f) Checks No. 549, 561, and 562 for the amounts of $185, $21, and $9.40, respectively, were written during November but have not yet been received by the bank.
  7. (g) The reconciliation from the previous month showed outstanding checks totaling $271.95. One of those checks, No. 471 for $18.65, has not yet been received by the bank.

Prepare bank reconciliation as of November 30.

Explanation

Bank reconciliation:

Bank statement is prepared by bank. The company maintains its own records from its perspective. This is why the cash balance per bank and cash balance per books seldom agree. Bank reconciliation is the statement prepared by company to remove the differences and disagreement between cash balance per bank and cash balance per books.

Prepare bank reconciliation as of November 30.
