The purpose of a bank reconciliation is used to compare your records to those of your bank, to see if there are any differences between these two sets of records for your cash transactions.

Bank reconciliation is crucial for every business to maintain accurate financial records. If it seems unnecessary to reconcile your bank account, here are 3 reasons to convince you otherwise.

Why every business should reconcile their bank account every month

1. Catch errors

A monthly bank reconciliation catches errors in your books. It may be as seemingly insignificant as a misread bank receipt. However, it can snowball into a more significant problem if left unchecked.

2. Verify cash position

A bank reconciliation verifies the exact amount of cash in the bank. Know exactly how much you have to spend and produce accurate and complete financial records.

3. Detect fraud

A monthly bank reconciliation quickly catches fraudulent transactions. Compromised credit cards or accounts are found promptly as some of the transactions from the bank won’t be in your books.
