Cash or cheque receipts

If a customer pays you in cash or by cheque you can easily record this income into your cash account. When you’re ready to take the money to the bank, you can record this as a bank deposit and move the money to your usual bank account.

Create a new cash account

By default there’s a cash in hand account already set up for you when you first sign up to Sage One. However, if you take regular cash payments, for example because you have a cash register, or till, you might want to create a new account to keep these receipts separate from your normal cash in hand account.

  • 2. Click New, then click Bank Account.
  • 3. In the Account Type list, click Cash in Hand.
  • 4. Enter an account name, for example, Cash register.
  • 5. Click Save.
