Reconciling means to check whether the dealing that you have done for your business matches with your bank records or not. It is important that such reconciliation is done on regular intervals, as that would allow you to see if there are any discrepancies.

- Check the ‘beginning balance’ and the ‘ending balance’. The ending balance is the closing balance of the statement. The beginning balance should match with the opening balance of the statement.
