Use this form to set up the types of transactions that are made in company bank accounts, such as deposit slips, fees, and interest charges.

You can use bank transaction types in the following ways.

  • Print a summary of the transaction types on the bank statement report.

  • Reconcile a bank statement by transaction type.

  • Limit the number of bank transactions to search through. For example, you could create transaction types such as Check payment, Electronic payment, or Bank transfer. Then you could search for a specific transaction type.

  • Further identify a check. For example, you could create transaction types such as Received checks and Issued checks.

  • Identify specific bank transactions. For example, you could create transaction types such as Fees, Charges, and Interest.

When you create transaction lines in the Transactions form to balance the company bank account with the bank statement, you enter the appropriate bank transaction type on each line.

The following table provides descriptions for the controls in this form.

Bank transaction type

Enter the number of the bank transaction type. In the Methods of payment forms for customers and vendors, you can select Bank as the account type and then select a specific bank transaction type in the Bank transaction type field. You can also specify the bank transaction type on journal lines. When you post the journal, the bank transaction type is copied automatically to the bank transaction.

The transaction type number can be an alphanumeric string of up to 10 characters, but cannot include special characters. Each transaction type is a unique value.


Assign the numbers so that you can recognize transaction types by the number alone.


Enter the name of the transaction type. The transaction type name helps identify the transaction type and is available together with the Bank transaction type field in other forms.


Name the transaction types so that you can identify them easily.

Main account

Select the main account for the transaction type, which is suggested automatically as the offset account on transaction lines with this bank transaction type. For example, when you post a correction transaction in bank account reconciliation, such as penny differences, bank fees, or interest charges, the offset main account appears automatically if you enter an account in this field for each bank transaction type.
