In this latest article on CARET Legal’s features, we announce the addition of General Deposits – a means of accepting payments not related to clients or matters.

Law firms occasionally receive payments that are not related to specific clients or matters.  Perhaps there is someone renting space within the firm.  Perhaps there is a refund from a utility company.  How can the person responsible for receiving payments assign this firm-related payment to an account other than Fee Income?
