Cash Office

‌We deal with all enquiries relating to income and cash receipts, whereas enquiries on supplier or student payments would normally be referred to Accounts Payable.

Please note that the banking of income is covered by the Unit Income and Cash Handling Policy (PDF, 934 KB)  and all staff involved with banking cash or cheques must be familiar with this document.

Income received

All cash and cheques should be accompanied by an Income posting slip. Two versions of this document are available below. The excel document will do all of the calculations (such as the VAT and totals) automatically. The pdf version is available for those users who do not use excel. Both versions can be printed easily. They should be printed, signed off and attached to any cash or cheques to be banked.

Some guidelines on completion

    • Please note that cash must always be brought into the Finance Office, ASC, 79 North Street in person
  2. The pay-in number is available for Schools / Units to use in order to keep track of pay-ins.
