Ch 7 Internal Control and Cash 1. What is internal control? Prevents shrinkage (inventory and assets) a. CRIME: i. C > control procedures; count inventory, security ii. R > risk assessment; hire a shoplifter, find the vulnerable points (places in the store) iii. I > information systems; inventory systems (perpetual vs periodic), proper authorization for transactions iv. M > monitoring controls; CFO (chief financial officer), CEO, management; hire theft prevention specialist, put them beepers in there, tags, security cameras, count your inventory more often v. E > environment; owner, management; if management overrides internal control, morale tanks, employees are angry b. What is collusion? Working together to reach a common goal relating to crime or skirting internal control; Enron; the SEC enacted the Sarbanes Oxley Act of 2002 (SOX) 2. Parties to a check or debit card: a. Payee > receives the cash b. Maker > person writing the check or presenting the debit card; they make the transaction happen c. To open an account, you sign on an electronic tablet d. Debit cards > if you pay with a debit card, you may have a temporary charge; always keep your receipt!!!! 3. Petty cash fund > a small fund used for miscellaneous expenses; locked; one person should have access (only one person); how much should be in the fund? Depends on the business a. Establish a petty cash fund: i. DR Petty Cash (+CA) 1,000 CR Cash (-CA) 1,000 b. At the end of the month, replenish the fund: i. Expenditures: $100 postage, $200 shipping, $500 libations (booze); there is $175 left Postage Exp. 100 FOB destination: Delivery Exp. 200 OR FOB shipping point: A/R 200 Entertainment Exp. 500 Cash Short and Over 25* (if this account is debited, it is considered an expense; credited it is a revenue) Cash (-CA) (1000 – 175) 825 4. Bank Reconciliation > reconcile your bank statement (or online) with what we have a. Two sections: i. Per bank > these items are items that we have record of but the bank doesn’t (look at the bank statement and compare); most of these items are timing differences; outstanding checks, deposit in transit, bank errors, Ending bank statement balance + deposits in transit – checks outstanding -/+ bank errors = adjusted cash balance ii. Per book > these are items that the bank has record of but we don’t (due to timing) Ending book balance (check register) + interest income, collection of notes receivable and related interest, book errors – bank fees, bounced or bad checks from our customers (bad DR transaction), book errors = adjusted cash balance
