Overview

DoorLoop automatically creates bank deposits for online payments made through the tenant portal. For manually recorded tenant payments or revenue collected outside of DoorLoop (such as interest), you will need to tell DoorLoop when this money is actually deposited.

These steps will show you how to record bank deposits for lease payments and for revenue collected outside DoorLoop.

  1. Record a bank deposit from a tenant lease payment

  2. Record a bank deposit for revenue collected outside DoorLoop


Record a bank deposit from a tenant lease payment

Remember from Accounting 101 that the revenue part of the accounting cycle includes making bank deposits for payments. This records that these funds moved from your undeposited funds to your bank account balance.

For example, you charge your tenant for rent and they give you a check. You record this payment on the tenant's lease, but this money shouldn't reflect in your bank account until you actually deposit the check.

Step 1

From anywhere in DoorLoop, click the + Create New button in the upper left corner and choose Bank Deposit under Other Transactions.

Step 2

Select the bank account you wish to record the deposit for in the Deposit Account box.

Step 3

In the Undeposited Funds for *Bank Account name* section, select the payments and/or owner contributions included in this bank deposit.

This moves these funds from an undeposited to a deposited status.

Step 4

Enter the date you deposited the payment or payments in your bank account in the Transfer Date box.

Step 5

Add any relevant files and click Save.

Note that you can also automatically create a bank deposit at the same time you manually record a lease payment. Perhaps you already deposited the money or received it electronically outside of DoorLoop, through Zelle for example.


Record a bank deposit for revenue collected outside DoorLoop

If you collect revenue that doesn't need to be recorded on a tenant's lease, or if you have other bank deposits unrelated to DoorLoop affecting your bank account balance, you can still record these bank deposits in DoorLoop.

Step 1

From anywhere in DoorLoop, click the + Create New button in the upper left corner and choose Bank Deposit under Other Transactions.

Step 2

Select the bank account you wish to record the deposit for in the Deposit Account box.

Step 3

In the Other Deposit Items section, complete the following:

  • Property: pick the property associated with this deposit. This deposit reflects on the accounting reports for this property.

  • Account: choose the correct general ledger account for the deposit. For example, you could create a revenue account in your chart of accounts for vending machine revenue.

  • Description: (optional) enter an optional explanation for the deposit. What you enter here you will also see in the “Memo” column on accounting reports.

  • Amount: enter the amount of the payment.

  • Payment method: (optional) pick among several options for informational purposes. Choosing Check allows you to record an optional Check Number.

  • Reference: (optional) add your own internal reference number.

  • Received from: (optional) you can record who paid you this deposit by choosing from Vendor, Owner, and Tenant and then picking from your list of each.

  • + Add Line Item: (optional) use this link to add additional deposit items if needed. You could also create separate bank deposits for each line item.

  • Add note: (optional) add additional information for your reference when reviewing the deposit later.

Step 4

Enter the date this was deposited in your bank account in the Transfer Date box.

Step 5

Add any relevant files and click Save.

That's it! These deposits will show up in the appropriate accounting reports, such as the profit and loss report for revenue deposits and the balance sheet for equity deposits.
