Bank Deposits in MoneyWorks

MoneyWorks by default provides an Unbanked bank account in it’s Chart of Accounts templates. The unbanked account is a Deposit Holding Account that businesses use to record receipts (cash, credit card or check/cheques) received from customers.

If you receive checks/cheques everyday, but you only want to physically deposit them into your bank once of week, you should record the receipt on the date it is received into MW against the Deposit/unbanked account. Outstanding customer invoices will then show the correct payment date and your AR person will not request payment from a customer whom has already paid etc.

In order to use the Deposit/Unbanked account, it is chosen [Blue Arrow] as the Bank account when you create the receipt.

Deposit Account Receipt

At the end of the week or when you decide to go to your Bank, select the Banking Command [Command menu at the top of your computer screen > Banking] or [Apple Command key + B, if on a Mac or Control Key + B, if on a PC] and the Banking window [Red Arrow] will open. All un-deposited/unbanked receipts will appear [Green Rectangle].

Note: all receipts will be highlighted, however you can choose which receipts you want deposited to your chosen Bank (possibly holding back a deposit or depositing to a different Bank later)

If you entered the Payment type in the receipt when entered, Cash receipts will be identified e.g. $100.00 in cash [Orange Arrow], so that you could if desired keep the cash in your office, recording in this case $100.00 to the Petty Cash office account [Green Square] that is used to buy donuts, coffee and pay couriers.

The Balance 8,305.00 [Purple Arrow] in this example will be deposited to my chosen Bank account [Green Arrow]

Banking Command


At this time you can print the Deposit report for your reference by clicking the Print button [Black Arrow]. The resulting report usually ends up looking like this.

Deposit report

With very little detail listed [Green rectangle]. The reason for this is that the fields/columns referenced in this quick report come from the customer’s name record and have not or are usually not filled in. For example you can fill in the your customer’s payment details in their Names record (Show menu > Names > double-click a customer name) and the Names Record [Red arrow] will open, Click the Bank tab [Pink arrow], choose how they pay e.g. Check ]Purple Arrow], Enter their Bank name, the Branch name or number and the account name (name on check/cheque. [Green Rectangle]
