How to Change the Default Payment Account

By default, new customer payments are recorded in the 'Money To Be Banked' account. This account is designed to keep track of the value of cash and cheques not yet deposited into a bank.

If you are not usually paid by cash or cheque you can change the default to a more appropriate account. For example, if your customers pay directly into your bank account you can change the default to Cheque Account. To do this, click menu Setup > Transaction Defaults > Default Accounts. Then change the Default Paid Into Account field to 'Cheque Account':

Default Accounts Window

Click OK to save the change. Customer payments will now be recorded against the Cheque Account by default.
