Bank reconciliation is a process that resolves the difference between the balance on a bank statement and the corresponding amount shown in an enterprise's accounting records. One of the most common applications of the BAI2 file format involves the transmission of returned-check data by a bank to an account holder, an event that nearly always triggers a call for bank reconciliation.
