In three column cash book, the amount columns are divided into three sections.

  • Discount
  • Cash
  • Bank

Preparation of this cash book is similar to the preparation of double column cash book or usual cash book. Bank column is the only added feature in this three column cash book. When there is an increase in your bank balance through transactions, those transactions are entered into the debit section in this bank column.

Banks only allow discounts in your deposited amount when finding an increase in it. This is because bank itself is an asset increase when deposits in it also increase. Due to this increased deposit in banks, records are entered and posted at debit side of this cash book.

With the help of this method, you can find records of cheque and cash deposit into banks and interest on that amount which is credited by bank on your account. You can find all these information displayed at bank column at the debit section of this three column cash book.

Cash column in this cash book is also known as office column. This showcases cash paid which is displayed at credit side and cash received which is displayed at debit side.

Every transaction which makes a deduction in your bank balance is displayed at bank column of three column cash book at its credit section. These debit making transactions are generally interests which are charged by banks, or they are those interests which are on overdraft. Usually, these charges which are imposed by banks or commonly known as collection charges or any other types of payments, are made by banks. These transactions are made on your behalf by banks.

Debit section of this cash book displays a decrease in cash, or in collective form, payments at bank. In case of a hike in cash or to be precisely said receipts, they can be seen at debit section of three column cash book.

Format example of three column cash book are as follows:

Contra entry

Contra entry according to accounting principle is a transaction which involves transfer of money from one cash account in a bank to another cash account in another bank. In here, there are three amount columns which are divided in three column cash book. As per the definition, banks and cash are both concerned with transactions. This is because both of them together represents cash book and transaction details are entered in both bank and cash column in this book.

Contra entry either deducts your cash at a bank or increases your cash on hand, or it just reverses the procedure. That is, it either hikes your cash at a bank or makes a deduction of your cash present with you. Although every transaction is entered on cash and bank section, but the records are made in separate columns. These transactions come under:

  • Fund deposition into bank
  • Withdrawal of money for corporate use
  • Companies opening current accounts with bank
  • Previously received cheque being deposited into bank

First, third and fourth instances are cases where funds are being deposited into banks. In this case, such transactions will make a hike in cash at bank. Side by side of increasing cash at bank, it is also deducting cash at hand. This is because funds are taken from company’s available cash deposit.

At the bank column in debit section, a hike in cash at bank is displayed in cash book. Apart from cash in bank, these transactions are also related to cash in hand; its record will be made at cash column of cash book. Records at bank column are also stated and written as ‘Office’ or ‘To Cash.’

A drop in cash in hand is displayed as ‘By Bank Account’ in credit section of cash book. You can find its deducted amount displayed in cash column. Indicated with ‘C,’ the transaction is entered into both credit and debit section of cash book. Here ‘C’ is the abbreviated form of opposite or reverse or to be specific contrary. In this context, contra entries are those records which you will find on reverse sections of cash books.

Transaction related to the second instance, i.e., withdrawing funds from bank account means raising the cash in hand. This kind of transaction is denoted as ‘To Bank Account’ where its record will be entered at debit section of cash book. Side by side of increase in an amount in hand, exactly similar amount is also getting decreased at bank. That transaction is also recorded in cash book but on credit section where it will be displayed as ‘C’ on both cash and bank side. It will be written as ‘Office’ or ‘By Cash’ under which these transactions will be recorded.
