The money from collections, together with other money (e.g. fees, donations, magazine sales, etc) should be delivered to the person undertaking the banking (or collected by the person from the safe). It is best that banking is done by someone other than the Treasurer but this will not always be feasible.

Money from sources other than collections should be acknowledged in writing, either by the issue of a receipt from a duplicate book or signature in a ledger kept by the payer.

The person banking should complete the bank paying-in slips in duplicate and should show the names of the drawers of cheques (and the amounts). The duplicate slips stamped by the bank cashier should be stapled to the supporting vouchers (collection slips etc) to serve as the material for entry in the accounts and for independent examination/audit.

Money should be banked promptly, usually by the Tuesday following a Sunday service.
