Canceled Checks Bank Reconciliation Journal Entry

If there are canceled checks on a bank reconciliation, what journal entry adjustments must be made by an accountant?

The check that was issued by you, unless presented to bank for clearance and debited to your account by bank, cannot be recorded by the bank in a bank statement.

Therefore, if a check is later cancelled by you before being sent to the bank, it will have no effect/treatment in bank statement. It will appear in bank reconciliation statement as a reconciling item.

To fix your accounting records, you will need to reverse the accounting journal entry in the accounts that were affected by the transaction.
