You have an online giving deposit you want to reconcile or allocate to the proper designation in your accounting software for a given day.
- Go to Reports / Financial and click to run the ONLINE DEPOSIT RECONCILIATION report that covers the day of the deposit or any date range. I generally recommend the day before and after as well since occasionally a deposit is made a day early or a day later than anticipated in the report.
- Double-check the deposit amount on the report compared to the actual deposit. Most of the time it's the same. If not review deposits from the day before or after to see if something might have slipped through differently than expected.
- Allocate funds to the proper designations in your accounting software.
Here's an example of an ONLINE DEPOSIT RECONCILIATION report from an actual church but with names scrubbed. Funds can also be further designated by campus for multi-campus churches.
Here's a close up of the summary, bottom left.
All your bookkeeper needs to do is enter these amounts as income into the accounting software. That's it!
