Introduction

Context

NU Departments with external sales:

• Record earnings using NUFinancials with a Cash Receipt Ticket (CRT) that credits the revenue to an account (4XXXX).

• Deposit earnings that include cash in a sealed bag in the NU bank account. Checks may also be deposited in sealed bags.

The process involves you, NUFinancials, and Depository Services (interacts with Chase Bank).

Objectives

This presentation names and describes:

• The materials and equipment you need

• How to prepare cash, coins, and checks

• How to initiate a sealed bag bank deposit

• How revenue is credited to your chart strings


Gather materials and equipment

Deposits to Chase Bank from University departments consist of cash and checks only, because credit/debit card sales are handled via Automated Clearing House (ACH).

For checks and cash (bills and coins), you must have:

• Deposit bag

• Deposit ticket

• Calculator with tape (or Excel as a work around)

• Paper clips or rubber bands for bills and checks

• Envelopes or coin rolls for change

• Endorsement stamp


Prepare checks, cash, and coins

• Separate checks, cash, and coins.

• Count and subtotal each medium.

– Use a calculator and print the calculator tapes.

– Or use Excel, print the spreadsheet, and cut it into strips.

• Attach tapes/strips to checks, bills, and coins.

• Create a final tape totaling those three subtotals.
