Account Reconcilement

A service in which one balances all outlays and payments, finds out what outlays must still be made and what payments are still outstanding, and determines how much cash a company has on hand. Outside parties often conduct account reconcilement in order to provide a level of objectivity to their analysis. See also: Cash management, Outside audit.
