Undeposited Funds FAQ's


Are undeposited funds a debit or credit?

When a customer’s cheque is received as a payment it is a credit to Accounts Receivable (as a reduction of that account), and as a debit for Undeposited Funds (an increase in that account-which is a holding account until the deposit is made). The funds are then transferred to the bank account by way of a deposit.
