In Cashbook, we will record the all-cash transaction of the business. This book keeps a record of all cash payments and cash receipts. In this article, we will discuss the Triple Column Cash Book, its format and example.
What is the Triple Column Cash Book?
In Triple Column Cash Book there are three columns in the cash book because every Businessman has a minimum of one current account in the bank. It is a very convenient way for him to get paid by cheque and make payments to others by cheque. So, he has to record these payments and receipts in the cash book for this an additional column will require a named bank column. So now a total three-column will be required to record the proper payment and receipts in the cash book these are shown below

Explanation of all columns:
The date of the transaction is written in this column —in the first row, we will write the year till it will not change and in the subsequent rows, write the name of the month followed by the actual date.
In this column, the name of the opposite account is written (the second aspect of cash transaction). Below is written the narration of the transaction.
3. Voucher Number (V. NO.):
The voucher number for each item of receipt and payment is also written. A voucher is necessary for each item of receipt and payment. Generally, a voucher has a serial number and this number is written in this column (V. No).
4. L.F. (Ledger Folio):
The page number of the Ledger where the concerned (opposite ) account has been opened, is written in this column. This will help to locate the account from the Ledger. It may be noted that in a Ledger account, J.F. is written as the reference, while in a Cash Book L.F. is written.
