  4. 4. www.SoftSkillsExperts.co.uk 10. What is the Debit Balance recovery? How we can recover if we won’t have any future transactions from supplier? The Debit balance recovery is usually made by raising a credit memo for the regular vendors.

When payment is made to the wrong vendor or payment made in excess, in that case overpayment has gone to the vendor, so for us it is vendor debit balance. For debit balance recovery, we can either follow-up with the vendor to send us the excess amount / refund back, or we can adjust that extra amount in future invoices submitted by that vendor. In case no future transactions, we have to follow-up with the vendor, failing which we have to write off this amount. 11. What is the meaning of TDS? How it is charged? Tax Deducted at Source (TDS).

  5. 5. www.SoftSkillsExperts.co.uk 17. What steps would you take before making a payment? Steps to be taken before making a payment: 1. Whom the payment is made to??

Customer A/C Debit Sales A/C Credit In Customer books entry is (reverse) 1000 1000 Purchase A/C Vendor A/C 1000 1000 Debit Credit 19. What is debit and credit from the banks point of view? 1. 2. 3. 4. If If If If I take money of my bank account. I debited my account? bank added money to my checking account. They credited my account? I bought something on my credit card. The store debited my account? the store gave me refund on my credit card. The store credited my account? Your confusion is understandable for someone who is not an accountant. Those terms 'Debit' and 'Credit' are relative to the BANK'S POINT OF VIEW not yours. The bank has a Balance Sheets with Assets on the left and Liabilities (things that it owes) on the right. Assets must always equal Liabilities + Owner Equity. On the Asset side, when a bank gains an Asset, it receives a Credit and when it loses an Asset it receives a Debit. The reverse is true for Liabilities. When a bank gains a Liability, it receives a Debit, but it is Credited when loses a Liability. When you take money out of your bank account, the bank loses Assets and therefore records a DEBIT (remember, a loss of Assets is a 'Debit' on the Asset side). When you add money to your bank account, the bank gains Assets, which is a CREDIT on the Asset side. When you use a credit card, the store DEBITS your account because you have gained a Liability, a promise to pay (remember, a Liability goes UP when it is Debited). When you get a refund, your account is CREDITED because you have lost a Liability (you are no longer obligated to pay that Debt). Remember, a CREDIT on the Liability side means that Liabilities go DOWN! So 'Debit' and 'Credit' don't mean 'down and up', it just refers to what action(s) is being taken and on what side of the Balance Sheet the action is taking place. 20. What do you understand by Intercompany Settlement? A company may have various company codes across the different locations, there will be exchange of goods and services between these company codes. These goods and services which are shared or exchanged between these company codes are reconciled during the month end process. The exchange difference has to be settled by a company code in the way of money transfer this process is known as intercompany settlement.

Wire transfer is a type of EFT. EFT or electronic funds transfer are commonly used ways to transfer money from and to accounts.

What documents are required before verifying invoice? What is the process if the supplier passes an invoice for more amount? The traditional three way match would apply here. This means the accounts payable processor should compare the purchase order with the receiving document and the invoice. If all three match, the invoice can be paid - although many organizations still insist that the invoice be approved. This approval is in addition to the matching process. If the invoice is for a larger amount, it is considered discrepant and the discrepancy must be resolved - the sooner the better. 29. What is difference between account payable and bills payable?

What is Reconciliation Statement? A reconciliation statement is a document that begins with a company's own record of an account balance, adds and subtracts reconciling items in a set of additional columns, and then uses these adjustments to arrive at the record of the same account held by a third party. The intent of the reconciliation statement is to provide an independent verification of the veracity of the balance in the company account, as well as to clarify the differences between the two versions of the account. Bank accounts: The bank reconciliation compares the balances between a company's version of its cash balance and the bank's version, typically with many reconciling items for such items as deposits in transit and uncashed checks. Debt accounts: The debt reconciliation compares the debt amounts outstanding according to the company and its lender. There can be differences requiring reconciliation when the company pays the lender, and the lender has not yet recorded the payment in its books. Accounts receivable: The receivables reconciliation is usually constructed on an informal basis for individual customers, and compares their version of outstanding receivable balances to the company's version. Accounts payable: The payables reconciliation is also usually constructed on an informal basis by individual supplier, and compares their version of outstanding payable balances to the company's version. 31. How does the payment mechanism work? As you receive an invoice in the mail, date stamp it with the date received. You can pay an invoice when and if you have a matching PO, and receiving ticket which has been signed by the employee receiving the item or witnessing the completion of the service. Once you are sure all three supporting papers match, you then enter the invoice in the program for payment utilizing the correct accounting line to ensure the correct account is being charged. It would be entered as a Purchase Order, if one has been set up. If not, you can pay as a direct invoice (DI). Once entered, a journal voucher will arrive, probably the next day. You would attach the supporting papers to the journal voucher and send them to the head office, keeping a copy for your files. You need to keep track of the amount of money available before and after the payment has been made. Also, it is important to ensure the entire order has been received. If not, a partial payment may be necessary or you can request a credit. 32. What is the difference between Consigner and Consignee? Consigner is the person who is the owner of the goods and who deliver the goods to the consignee. Consignee is the person who receives the goods and he just possesses the goods and not the owner. 33.

In accounting, the three-way match refers to a procedure used when processing an invoice received from a vendor or supplier. The purpose of the three-way match is to avoid paying incorrect and perhaps fraudulent invoices. Three-way refers to the three documents involved: 1. Vendor's invoice which was received and will become part of an organization's accounts payable if approved. 2. Purchase order that was prepared by the organization. 3. Receiving report that was prepared by the organization. Match refers to the comparison of the quantities, price per unit, terms, etc. appearing on the vendor's invoice to the information on the purchase order and to the quantities actually received.

Non-billable expenses are the expenses incurred by you for carry out your own business / duties and responsibilities. Billable expense would be in example billing your airfare to go to a company convention to your employer for reimbursement. Non-billable expenses would be the pay-per-view movies you charged in your hotel room while you were on that stay. You accumulated those expenses on your own account, and was not necessary to your job. 38. Tell us about an invoice discrepancy that you discovered and how you resolved the discrepancy?

  10. 10. www.SoftSkillsExperts.co.uk - If there is no profit, the shareholder does not receive a dividend, interest is paid to debenture-holders regardless of whether or not a profit has been made. - In case of dissolution of firms debenture holders are paid first as compared to shareholder. The word ‘Debenture’ is derived from the Latin term “debere” which means “to borrow”. Share capital is the main source of finance of a joint stock company. Such capital is raised by issuing shares. Those who hold the shares of the company are called the shareholders and are owners of the company. Company may need additional amount of money for a long period. It cannot issue shares every time. It can raise loan from the public. The amount of loan can be divided into units of small denominations and the company can sell them to the public. Each unit is called a ‘debenture’ and holder of such units is called Debenture holder. The amount so raised is loan for the company. A Debenture is a unit of loan amount. When a company intends to raise the loan amount from the public it issues debentures. A debenture is a document issued under the seal of the company. It is an acknowledgment of the loan received by the company equal to the nominal value of the debenture. It bears the date of redemption and rate and mode of payment of interest. 40. What is the full form of the term WIRE in wire payment? Explain the process for making and receiving the payment through WIRE? A wire transfer is an electronic transfer of money. In the case of a bank-to-bank transfer, no actual cash is exchanged, but electronic balances in the respective accounts are adjusted accordingly. This is a very secure way to transfer funds, as positive identification of both account holders is required, and there is no chance of a charge back, unlike with a personal check. Companies such as Western Union offer an alternate, anonymous method of wire transfer. Therefore, you can walk into a Western Union in Arizona, for example, and send 100 US dollars (USD) to the Western Union in the Bahamas simply by paying the Arizona office the cash plus any fees. Your friend in the Bahamas can go to the Western Union to receive the 100 USD in cash within minutes. The money is transferred electronically. A cash wire transfer is handy when someone does not have access to a bank account, but it also has drawbacks. If this type of transfer is used to purchase something from a private party, the seller can provide false information to the sender. Cash can be collected at the receiving end under the false ID, and the party can disappear without ever providing the promised goods. Law enforcement is also concerned about subversive organizations using such transfers to fund illegal activities. A bank-to-bank wire transfer has the advantage of being much more secure and desirable than other forms of payment. These transfers even save paper by reducing the need for checks and deposit slips, making them more environmentally friendly than standard forms of banking. 41.
