How do I enter an adjustment into the Cash Book?

If you would like to make an entry into the Cash Book without adding the entry to a Deposit, then you should add an adjustment entry into the Cash Book. Adjustment made into the Cash Book will also post any entry into the Check Book.  There are two menu options used to add a transaction into your Cash Book which you:

  • need in your Cash Book and disburse the amount
  • do not want to use a Receipt Number
  • do not want to appear on a deposit report

Create Adjustment (Empty)
Typically these types of items will be Electronic Fund Transfers or Bank Fees.  This will bring up a form that looks like a receipt entry form.  Just fill it as you would a receipt and then click “Process & Exit” to post it or click “Exit” to drop any entry and not post the transaction.

Create Adjustment (Populated)
If you have right clicked on a receipt, you can then click  to open the same adjustment form as above, except that all of the information and the dollar amounts of the receipt that you right clicked on will be filled in on the form.  A note will also be filled in with the words “Correct Receipt” and then the receipt number that you clicked on.  If you wish to reverse this receipt, then just make the dollar amounts negative.  Click  “Process & Exit” to post it or click “Exit” to drop any entry and not post the transaction.
