Assignment 5 scenario 1. I am trying to reconcile the cash book and it doesn't balance. Can't figure out what am I doing wrong. I updated cash book with interest on DR £72 and Sales payments for £7658 in total+bank charges £150 on CR side of cash acc. Is that correct? Why it doesn't balance?

    Not sure if you have solved this one yet.
    The only entries that need updating (ie the ones that didnt reconcile with the bank statement) are £72 bank interest DR and £150 bank charges CR.

    If you balance the cash book you should have a debit balance which gives you the balance b/d figure for your updated cash book (DR £121). Make the 2 entries above and balance it off.
    Part 2 of the assignment will then confirm that your figure is correct.

    Hope that helps:thumbup:
