"Bank reconciliation? What's a bank reconciliation?" By David Carter
“Bank reconciliation? What is a bank reconciliation?”
“What are these cheques that you have in England?”
A few years back I was recruited to advise a Dutch company that wanted to introduce a (very good) accounts package into the UK. One thing I noticed was that the package didn’t have a bank reconciliation module.
I told them that this was very important in our country. But they said that nobody needed one in Holland and they couldn’t understand why people needed one in England. And I couldn’t understand why they couldn’t understand.
