                                  Balance, December 31                                                 4,422


The December bank statement contained the following information:


                            Balance, December 1                                                      3,231   


                            Deposits                                                                         43,000

The checks that were processed by the bank in December include all of the outstanding checks at the end of November except for check #365.  In addition, there are some December checks that had not been processed by the bank by the end of the month.  Also, you discover that check #411 for $320.00 was correctly recorded by the bank but was incorrectly recorded on the books as a $230 disbursement for advertising expense.  Included in the bank’s deposit is a $1,300 deposit incorrectly credited to the company’s account.  The deposit should have been posted to the credit of the Los Gatos Company.  The NSF checks have no ben redeposited and the company will seek payment from the customers involved.
