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 unreconciled between the numerous branches and departments. Thus, Banks are exposed to risks. Inter-branch unit / department reconciliation approaches differ among banks, but the general principles and objectives are similar. As a Bank grows and operations unreconciled 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 needing to improve reported profits by reducing the quantum of “provisions” in the accounts due to huge outstanding balances of unreconciled transactions.
