Types of certificate of reconciliation
Certificate of reconciliation for divorce– Also known as a ‘statement of reconciliation’; this certificate is not a conventional one in terms of design and wordings. Prepared by legal professionals, the certificate basically declares that they had a word with their client or petitioner seeking a divorce from his or partner about the availability of reconciliation services or a possibility of reconciliation.
Reconciliation of share certificate-This certificate is widely known as ‘Reconciliation of Share Capital Audit Certificate’. This certificate is popular in India. It is created by a practicing company secretary as per the regulation 55A of Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI). This is too technical and I am summing that definitely, you are not going to create one. So, have a look at the next one!
Bank reconciliation certificate-To develop a comprehensive understanding of what is this certificate all about, you have to first know that a company accountant prepares a bank reconciliation certificate on a monthly basis to check that whether the company’s cash account balance is matching with its bank account balance. It is also popularly known as a bank reconciliation statement.
Certificate of reconciliation studies– Proposed by the First Nations University of Canada, the certificate is also known as CRS. This focuses on giving recognition to the shared history of native and non-indigenous people.
Apart from all the above ones, there is also a type of certificate of reconciliation which is used in India for a declaration of difference in name of a deceased depositor.
