Cash Book Report
It is a financial journal that contains all cash receipts and disbursements, including bank deposits and withdrawals. These entries are then posted into the financial general banking ledger.

Key Points

  • A cash book is a subsidiary to the general ledger in which all money transactions of a business during a specific period are recorded. It can then be emailed or printed in a list with rows and columns (like an Excel spreadsheet).
  • The ledger is recorded in chronological order, and the balance is updated and verified on a continuous basis.
  • Types of cash books may commonly include single column, double column, and triple column.
Cash Book vs. Cash Account

These two differ in a few ways. The first is a separate ledger in which money transactions are recorded and serves the purpose of both the journal and ledger, whereas the second is an account that is structured like a ledger. Narration or details about the source or use of funds are required in the first but not the latter.

Selecting a cash book instead of a cash account may be due to numerous reasons why a business might do so. Day by day, cash balances are easily generated and accessed. Errors or mistakes can be detected easily through verification, and entries are kept up-to-date since the balance is verified daily. With cash accounts, balances are commonly reconciled at the end of the month after the issuance of the monthly bank statement.

Recording in a Cashbook
Money settlements in the book have two sides: debit and credit. All receipts are recorded on the left-hand side as a debit, and all cash payments are recorded by date on the right-hand side as a credit. The variation between the left and right sides shows the balance of cash on hand, which should be a net debit balance if cash flow is positive.
Image
The cash book is set up in columns. There are three common versions of the cash book: single column, double column, and triple column. The first on the cash book shows only receipts and payments of cash. The double-column cash book shows cash receipts and payments as well as details about bank transactions. The last column cash book on the file shows all of the above plus information about purchase or sales discounts.

A typical single column cash book will have the column headers: date, description, reference, and amount. These headers are present for both the left side showing receipts and for the right-side showing payments. Another column is the date of the transaction.
After you generate the cash book, it is then updated continuously, and it will be in chronological order by the transaction or any other option. The accountant writes a short description or narration of the transaction in the description column. In the reference or ledger folio column, the author inputs the account number for the related general ledger account. The amount of the transaction is recorded in the final column.
