and to your company's book
Adjustments to the bank balance can include:

- Deposits that cleared with bank errors (the error amounts remain outstanding).
- Withdrawals that cleared with bank errors (the error amounts remain outstanding).
The adjustments to the book balance can include:
- Manually entered bank entries.
- Bank charges, such as credit card charges or bank service charges.
