Undeposited funds are funds you have not yet deposited in your bank.

What is the Undeposited Funds account?

The Undeposited Funds account is a default account in QuickBooks Online that holds funds from payments to your company until you deposit them to your bank account.

You can think of the Undeposited Funds account as an envelope where you keep cheques until you take them to the bank.

If you receive more than one cheque or payment in a day, you may want to group them all into a single deposit, and you should enter those transactions so that your Bank Register matches your bank's monthly statement.
