On the Edit → Accounts menu, you may create a new bank account, change the descriptions of an existing account, or to delete an existing account.

You may have more than one Bank account and wish to add this to your Chart of accounts. TurboCASH4 will have set up a Bank account for you in your selected template. (In this example, account number “810-000 - Current Bank account ” is used).

If you wish to add another Bank account remember that in planning your Chart of accounts you would like accounts of a similar nature to be grouped together.

Bank accounts must be linked to a unique Payments and Receipts batch. Before you can create a new Bank account you will first need to create a new Payments and Receipts batch.

To create new Payments and Receipt batches:

1. Click on the Setup → System parameters → Batch types menu. The "Batch type" screen is displayed:
