What is a Cash Book?
Cash Book is the record of cash transaction done in a company on a day to day or regular basis. Cash Book is just like a ledger account. There is no need to open a separate cash account in the ledger.
It is a subsidiary ledger which records all kind cash receipts and cash payments including the bank deposits and withdrawals. At the end of the month, these transactions from cash book are posted to the general ledger.
The best-known practice of business is to weekly compare the bank related transaction with the bank statement or perform a bank reconciliation to avoid mismatch of balances. You can use our Bank Reconciliation Statement Excel Template for this purpose.
In big companies where there are high volumes of cash transactions, the cash book is subdivided into two different journals. One is the receipt Journal and the other is the disbursement journal.
In a smaller business as there are fewer transactions, all the cash transactions are maintained in a single cash book.
The records fed in the cash book are always in chronological order. This helps us to easily reconcile the cash balances when required.
All the received cash is posted on the debit side and all payments and expenses are posted on the credit side of the cash book.
