TallyERP9 Tutorial Part-35: Bank Reconciliation

Bank reconciliation is a process that explains the difference between the bank balance shown in an organization’s bank statement, as supplied by the bank, and the corresponding amount shown in the organization’s own [accounting] records at a particular point of time.

The Bank Reconciliation option in the Banking menu enables you to reconcile bank accounts. You can access bank reconciliation to print or configure the reconciliation statements, according to your requirements.

With Bank Reconciliation, you can :

  • Create vouchers from the Bank Reconciliation screen itself.
  • Provide opening BRS for unreconciled transactions.
  • Alter the voucher by selecting the required transaction from the Bank Reconciliation screen.
  • Filter the report to display transactions based on Amount, Bank Date, Instrument No, Instrument Date, Party ledger, and so on.
