Reconciliation and Deposits

When you receive a bank or credit-card merchant statement, use the Reconciliation and Deposits window to compare transactions on the statement with your Sage 50 Accounting transactions. You can also use this window to record payments you receive and deposit in the bank. Then, when you reconcile your account, the deposit details are already entered.

Account Reconciliation

When setting up an account, if you choose the option to save transactions for account reconciliation, the program maintains a record of the current status of the cheques and other payments issued by your company, the deposits you make, and the general journal entries that affect your Bank or Credit-Card account.

Before you can reconcile an account, you must first:

  1. Set up accounts
  2. Reconcile for the first time

Deposit Slips

When you are adding entries to a deposit slip, you can enter them all at once or you can save your work by either clicking the Save button on the toolbar or by selecting Save from the Deposit Slip menu. You may then return to finish the deposit slip at another time.

When you return to a saved deposit slip,Sage 50 Accounting determines if any of the entries have been changed since you last worked on it (for example, adjusted, voided, or deposited to another account). If any changes have occurred, the entries are invalid and appear in red text, letting you know that they need to be removed from the deposit slip using the Add Cheques to Deposit Slip window.
