Present the required journal entry or entries to record this transaction.
Q7 Bank Reconciliation
As a new business manager you are concerned that the bank reconciliation is not being completed and presented to you each month. Explain why this is important and how you would select someone in your organization to complete this task. You have a sales clerk, an accountant, an executive secretary for your office, an accounts payable clerk, an accounts receivable specialist, and a credit manager (6 employees total plus you).
Q8 Management of Cash Functions and other issues of Internal Control
You are president of your local division, responsible for cash receipts and disbursements. The bank made a presentation to you and suggests your division use electronic processing for cash transactions. Accounts payable payments would be processed using the bank's system with an interface into your accounting system to meet your needs. Your invoices would reference a post office box managed by the bank who would open all mail. The cash receipts (checks from the customers) would be retained and processed, with copies provided to you electronically. All non cash receipt mail would be forwarded to you based on the advice of your legal counsel. Your paragraph should explain the pros and cons of this system, as it relates to cash receipts and cash disbursements.
Q9 Bank Reconciliation
The Bank Balance presented on the bank statement totals $10,000 while the general ledger cash balance for this account, on the same date, the last day of the month, displays a value of $12,255.
Please explain the issues related to this difference and how they would be resolved. Use you experience in creating a bank reconciliation to assist you in considering the variables.
Q10 Petty Cash
The auditors arrived to check the petty cash balance in your office. The account has a balance of $85 and the receipts not yet presented for reimbursement total $62. The Petty Cash Fund was issued several years ago for $150. How would you explain the current situation to the auditor? What might cause the balance to be off?
