It's purpose is to detect any and all discrepancies between the company's accounting records and the bank's other than those due to timing differences.  It's extremely important to do bank reconciliation regularly to ensure recorded cash is correct, to avoid overdrawn fees, to keep a check on bounced, stolen or altered checks or any other fraudulent activities. With regular reconciliation, any unforeseen problem or error could be detected and resolved on time.
