A lot of frauds amounting to very huge sums of money take place due to inefficient operation of inter-branch reconciliations. Huge sums of money remain un-reconciled between the numerous branches and departments of Microfinance Banks. Thus, Microfinance Banks are exposed to risks. Inter-branch unit / department reconciliation approaches differ among banks but the general principles and objectives are similar. As the Microfinance Bank grows in sizes and operations un-reconciled differences mount and suspense accounts are created. There is need therefore to teach proper procedures for management of suspense accounts and reconciliation of outstanding differences. There is also need to improve reported profits by reducing the quantum of “provisions” in the accounts due to huge outstanding balances of un-reconciled transactions.
