Banking > Receiving money
In AccountRight software, the term receiving money refers to recording receipts that are not payments for invoices. These receipts might include equity injections, interest, adjustments and so on. These can be entered using the Receive Money window or by selecting the Receive Money transaction type in the Bank Register window.
In the Receive Money window, you can record more details about the receipt and allocate it to more than one account. This is the procedure covered in this section. If you want to use the Bank Register window—which lets you record a receipt with minimum details—see Entering transactions in the Bank Register window.
If you want to record a payment for an invoice entered using the Sales command centre, use the Receive Payments window or select the Receive Payment transaction type in the Bank Register window. See Receiving payments for more information.
Printing payment receipts
You can print payment receipts for payments entered in the Receive Money and Bank Register windows. For more information, see Printing payment receipts.
