How to do a Bank Deposit for Cash/Cheque received into the Client/Trust Account
Payments which have been received by cash or cheque and recorded in Migration Manager will have a status of 'Undeposited' until you generate a Bank Deposit to record that you have in fact deposited the funds in to the bank account. For details on how to record a receipt in to the Client/Trust Account, please see: Receipt a Deposit After all deposits have been recorded in Migration, a bank deposit needs to be prepared for payments which have been received by cash or cheque.
