On the post deposit screen, just below memorized labels, you will see a dropdown defaulting to “General”. The other option is “AR Deposit”
We have created this option because we found that users sometimes will post deposits to the checkbook without applying them to an invoice created in the invoicing section of the software.
This will cause accounting errors and misleading financial reports. It may even cause duplicate income resulting in double the income amount.
Be sure if you are posting a deposit against an invoice, to create the deposit through the accounts receivable section. You can jump to that screen by selecting “AR Deposit” from the dropdown. All other deposits may be posted as a general deposit.
