hi, i want to ask a question of reconciled balance.
A receivables ledger control account shows a balance of $35,100 ,while the list of balances totals $36500. The following discrepancies are discovered:
(i) A credit balance of $350 has been included in the list of balances as a debit
(ii) A refund of $125 has not been posted to the receivables ledger control account
(iii) One page of the sales day book has been undercast by $575
What is the reconciled balance?
List of balances total:
36,500 -350 x 2 = 35,800
35,100 -125 + 575 = 35,550
There seems to be something wrong with the question.
ok, thank you
The problem is actually with the Refund of 125. In my opinion, this is actually a refund of cash, which was Overpaid by the customer. So, it should be treated as a debit entry in Receivables Control Account..
35,100 + 575 + 125 = 35,800
Correct answer: B
