Firm’s account

(Iii) Interest and bank charges amounting to ~ 1,200 debited by the bank to the Firm’s account have not been entered in the firm’s books

(iv) Out of ~ 11,300 paid in by the firm in cash and by cheques on July 31, cheques amounting to ~ 4,750 are credited to the firm’s account on August 4, 2015.

(v) A cheque of ~ 900 credited in the Pass Book on July 28 being dishonoured is debited to the firm’s account on August 2

(vi) Bankers have credited the firm’s account with ~ 16,000 for interest collected by them on Government papers held by them but the same has not been entered in the firm’s books.
