Record and Deposit Monies Received

This Help File Page was last Modified on 12/07/2018

A.Your Company's Receipts should be Deposited daily!  

There is no valid reason for "holding checks until we have enough to deposit".  

The Bank's Fees, and the interest earnings that help offset those fees, are determined by your Company's average daily balance.  

No average daily balance credit is given for those checks when they're in the Company's safe, or your desk drawer!

 

B.Each day's Receipts may be posted using any or all of these:

1.The Receipt Posting Form

2.The Receipts Form

3.The Post Auto Drafts process

4.The E-Payments feature,

5.The Import Payments feature

Note 1: For those Companies who are using the InnoEPay service as their Payment Gateway, funds received through the Post Auto Drafts and E-Payments process will be deposited, and recorded as such, automatically.

 

Each individual Receipt item (e.g., Cash, Check, Credit Card, Electronic Funds Transfer) must be assigned a Batch Number - based on your Company's adopted Batch Number Assignment methodology - and recorded as Deposited - either as entered using the Receipts Form, or later using the Bank Deposits Form.

Note 2: See the "Batch Number Assignment" discussion in the Receipts chapter for more information about assigning Batch Numbers.

 Also, see Defining your Company's Batch Numbers discussion in the E-Payments chapter.

 

The Batch Number assignment process is very flexible:

i.Internally, MKMS records Receipts by Month & Year - each Receipt in each Month is further identified by a Batch Number and Payment Type.

ii.All Receipts are considered Undeposited until they are recorded as Deposited either on the Receipts Form, or in the Bank Deposits Form.

iii.Multiple Batch Numbers may be used within the same day (e.g., to separate Credit Card transactions from Cash Receipts, and/or to separate either of those types of Receipts from EFT funds);

iv.Although not recommended, the same Batch Number could be used for, and assigned to Receipts from more than one day, or may be used to group a specific type or set of Receipts together for some other internal business purpose.

v.See the "Batch Number Assignment" discussion in the Receipts chapter for more information about Batch Number Assignment methods, and the Defining your Company's Batch Numbers discussion in the E-Payments chapter..

 

Alert - The same Batch Number should never be assigned within the same Month to Receipts that will be deposited into different Banks!

 

C.Posting Receipts - Use either of these Forms to record Monies received and optionally to record it being Deposited,

1)The Receipts Form is accessible from the Subscribers Form's Subscriber Options - Receivable sub-menu and is used record Monies received and optionally to record them being Deposited (when a Receipt is recorded, and it is also being deposited at the same time, you may enter that Deposited On date on the Receipts Form using the Drop-Down Calendar/Date Entry field provided.)

2)The Post Receipts Icon on the Receivables tab on the MKMS Desktop will open a more powerful Receipt Posting capability to record those Monies received from Subscribers.

 

D.Bank Deposit - When Receipts are to be Deposited, record that Deposit in the Bank Deposits Form (following the "1. Recording the Bank Deposit" instructions below).

 

E.Print a Cash Receipts Report to list those Receipts that were recorded as deposited:

1.Based on which Receipts were Chosen on the Bank Deposits Form to be deposited, Select one of these reporting Period options:

a.For all the Receipts posted Today, or

b.Receipts posted specifically for the One Batch Number assigned to a set of Receipts, or
