Scenario: Daisey Company is a very profitable small business. It has not, however 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 company’s ledger showed one Cash account with a balance of $21,877.72. The balance included undepositied cash on hand. Because of the lack of internal controls, Bret took for personal use all of the undeposited receipts in excess of $3,795.51. He then prepared the following bank reconciliation in an effort to conceal his theft of cash:
|Cash balance per books, October 31||$21,877.72|
|Add: Outstanding checks|
|Less: Undeposited receipts||3,795.51|
|Unadjusted balance per bank, October 31||18,565.00|
|Less: Bank credit memorandum||185.00|
|Cash balance per bank statement, October 31||$18,380.00|
Prepare a 1,050-word bank reconciliation report (hint: deduct the amount of the theft from the adjusted balance per books) including the following:
- Indicate the three ways that Bret attempted to conceal the theft and the dollar amount involved in each method.
- What principles of internal control were violated in this case?
