(a) What is an imp rest system?

________. (1)

(b) State one advantage of triple column cash book

________. (1)

Explanation

  • Imp rest system is a system of setting aside some fixed amount of cash for paying small, routine expenses and maintaining a petty cash book for the same. This amount is restored to the same level at the beginning of a new period.
  • The triple column cash book contains both- the cash A/c as well as the bank A/c. So, the contra entry (the double entry involving both the cash A/c the bank A/c at the same time) is recorded in the cash book itself. These contra entry can easily be cross checked in the triple column cash book.
