Bank Takings

The bank takings transaction allows you to record the details of any cash based banking that you carry out. You can record each cheque item that you bank individually, or simply group them together as one.

In effect the screen mirrors a bank paying in slip.

A default may be displayed if it has been set in Document Settings or on the Customer record. This default may be overwritten.

To set a default, if it has not already been done, navigate to Document Settings under the Control menu. This will set a general default across all Customers.

Control - Document Settings - select Default Customer Receipts Account

If necessary a Customer specific default can be set on the Customer Record

Accounts - Customers - Click Open in the Action Menu - Commercial Details Tab - Amend the Request Remittance To field
