Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page


To record a deposit to the bank, choose option 3.


If you have set up one of the bank accounts to be the Petty Cash account, you would also use this screen to record an addition of money to petty cash.


If prompted, select the bank account you are working with. The following screen will appear:



Enter a Deposit Reference Number:        1081




Each deposit requires a unique deposit number, which is not related to numbers on deposit sips. The program finds an available number but lets you change it if needed.
