given much consideration to internal control. For example, in an
attempt to keep clerical and office expenses to a minimum, the company
has combined the jobs of cashier and book-keeper. As a result, Bret
Turrin handles all cash receipts, keeps the accounting records, and
prepares the monthly bank reconciliations.

The balance per the
bank statement on October 31, 2017, was $18,380. Outstanding checks were
No. 62 for $140.75, No. 183 for $180, No. 284 for $253.25, No. 862 for
$190.71, No. 863 for $226.80, and No. 864 for $165.28. Included with the
statement was a credit memorandum of $185 indicating the collection of a
note receivable for Daisey Company by the bank on October 25.
