Wilson is preparing his bank reconciliation at 31 May 2005. His bank statement shows a balance of $228 cash at the bank. The balance on the bank account in his general ledger is $113 (credit).
He has noted the following reasons for the difference:
(i) Cheque number 958602 was incorrectly recorded in Wilson’s cash book as $760. The cheque was correctly debited on the bank statement on 2 May as $670.
(ii) Bank charges of $428 were debited by the bank on 4 May.
