Ensure ending reconciliation balances match

All we need to do from here is find the sum on the Bank's Cash Balance...

$850 (Per Bank Statement)
-$200 (Checks outstanding)
+$170 (Deposits outstanding)
+$50 (Bank error)
-----
=$870

...and place it here...

Bank's Cash Balance

Per Bank Statement$850
Checks outstanding($200)
Deposits outstanding$170
Bank error$50
Bank Balance per Reconciliation$870

Company's Cash Balance

Per General Ledger$800
Note receivable$200
Interest earned$20
Service fees($50)
NSF checks($100)
Company Balance per Reconciliation???

...and then find the sum on the Company's Cash Balance...

$800 (Per General Ledger)
+$200 (Note receivable)
+$20 (Interest earned)
-$50 (Service fees)
-$100 (NSF checks)
-----
=$870

...and place it here:

Bank's Cash Balance

Per Bank Statement$850
Checks outstanding($200)
Deposits outstanding$170
Bank error$50
Bank Balance per Reconciliation$870

Company's Cash Balance

Per General Ledger$800

Since both ending balances equal $870, this validates that we've conducted our bank reconciliation correctly, and haven't missed any reconciliation items needed to get the bank and company on the same page before they move into the next month!
