Three Column Cash Book Example

In modern business, we complete almost all the transactions through bank. We pay off cash through check or online bank transfer. We also collect money through check. So, it is necessary to show one more column in cash book except cash column and discount column. With following example, you can understand it deeply.
There are following three columns in triple column cash book. 

a) Discount Column
b) Cash Column
c) Bank Column

Write out the following transactions in the Triple column cash book of Sitaram:
Jan. 1 Sitaram commences his business with cash = Rs. 30000
Jan 2 He pays into bank current account = Rs. 20000
Jan. 3 He receive cheque from kulwant rai on account = Rs. 1000
Jan. 7 He pays kulwant rai's cheque into bank = Rs. 1000

Remember : a) If we deposited money into bank or withdraw money from bank we have to show such amount both cash column in one side and bank column in other side. So, these are the contra entries and its double entry has completed in cash book. We show c just front of entries.

b) Before showing discount column, we have to show ledger folio column both side, due to shortage of space, we did not show.

c) When we get a cheque but we have endorsed to some other person, it is recorded in cash book because this is neither receipt nor payment from cash or our bank. Its record will be done through journal entry. So, we will not show jan. 30 endorsement transaction in cash book.
