Student question about Statements

I have to write up an account statement like the following:
__________________________________________________________________________ Accounts Rendered | Three Months | Two Months | One Month | Balance
-------------------------------------------------------------------------- |         | | | | |         | | | | |         | | | | --------------------------------------------------------------- Date |     Particulars         |    Debit     | Credit | --------------------------------------------------------------- |                  |         |      | |                  |         |      | |                  |         |      | ---------------------------------------------------------------------------                         Amount Payable: ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
This statement is for the month of July and I have information for that Month, so I am sure I can enter that into the date, particulars, debit, credit and balance columns, but I have no idea what goes into the accounts rendered, three months etc.. columns?
Any help for a beginner would be appreciated.
Thank you.

I presume this is a customers statement you are writing. If this is an Balance Forward statement you should have an opening balance (Closing balance at 30th June) This will be the first line of the statement If this is an opening balance account where every unpaid invoice and unallocated payment is listed then you should have all these transactions listed. For manual systems Balance forward is quicker.
The accounts rendered, I have never seen that term before (I am in Ireland), may be the column for listing what amount of a payment has been allocated against an invoice. This shows the customer how their payment has been allocated. But this would only be useful for open balance account statements.
The current to 3 month column analyses the ageing of the unpaid invoices. example: July invoices are current (don't see this on your example) June invoices are one month old May invoices are 2 months old April + are 3 months+
It is more normal to see the ageing at the bottom of a customers statement. Usually an Aged Debtors (Receivables) report lists owed amounts is in the format above.
Balance may be the running total of each transaction and the final balance should be what is owed by the customer.
Hope that helps in some way Nilsson
