Movement of money in the cash book

 

Lets talk some more on the movement of money in the cash book?

 

Dr- Receipts

Cr- Payments

 

When money is received the bank balance increases and when money is paid out, the bank balance reduces. J

 

Simple hey!!!

 

Lets see how you get on with this simple scenario:

 

·         Where there is an opening debit bank balance of £12,030 and the totals recorded in the cash book for the year ended 30 April 20X5 were:

 

Receipts

£106,950

Payments

£121,490

 

Assuming there were no year-end adjustments, what will be the opening balance in the cash book as at 1 May 20X5?

 

£­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­_________ debit / credit

 

 

I’m sure you would have got this correct and known that it will be……..

 

 

£2,510 credit since the cash book balance does not have money left in it, so it will have a credit balance.
