Bank deposits allow you to specify which receipts were deposited into the bank at one time. Receipts with the same bank deposit number will be assigned to the same bank deposit. If you create a deposit and then add the transactions to that deposit, they will all be consolidated to a single line in checkbook reconciliation. Bank deposits will appear in the Bank Reconciliation screen on the Reconcile tab under Deposits and Other Credits. If you do not include your receipts in a deposit, all of our receipts will be listed separately when you go to reconcile your checkbook. This will make reconciling your bank statement difficult because your bank statement will sum all of the amounts that are deposited at the same time into one amount on your bank statement.

A sequence number can be set up for use with bank deposit numbers. The sequence number can be set to include an identifier for the deposit (for example DEP), set to increment, include the date, and reset on each day. To create an incrementing sequence number with the date that will reset daily, select Setup > General > Numbering Sequences. select the Bank Deposits transaction screen, determine if the sequence number should be unique by company and bank account, in the Format box enter DEPddmmyy#, select the Reset on New Date check box, and then click Save.
