Making Deposits

Make a deposit in JCurve to record funds you deposit into your bank account. For a deposit, you can select payments received from existing transactions, add funds not related to transaction payments, and record any cash received back from the bank.

Note:  Many organisations post customer payments to the Undeposited Funds ledger account rather than to a specific bank account.  This prevents a time lag between the amount shown on your books for a bank account and the bank balance.  When you record a deposit, JCurve moves funds out of the Undeposited Funds account to the ledger account for the bank account, to accurately reflect bank account balances.  If you record customer payments directly to a bank account rather than to Undeposited Funds, you do not need to create deposits for the amounts.
