From the September 30 Bank Statement
Additional Information
Check No. 5904 is correctly drawn for $2,073 to pay for computer equipment; however, the record keeper misread the amount and entered it in the accounting records with a debit to Computer Equipment and a credit to Cash of $2,037. The NSF check shown in the statement was originally received from a customer, S. Nilson, in payment of her account. Its return has not yet been recorded by the company. The credit memorandum is from the collection of a $1,640 note for Madison Company by the bank. The bank deducted a $22 collection fee. The collection and fee are not yet recorded.
