If your church/organization has more than one bank account, you can indicate which category gets deposited into which account. When you do a bank deposit, you will get one page for each bank account.

You may have both a US dollar and a Canadian dollar bank account. So you are depositing donations in Canadian dollars to one account and those in US dollars to the other. You can now setup each bank account and Donarius will automatically do a bank deposit report for each one.
 
4.761
July 14/2016
Sometimes a husband/wife want to combine their receipts and statements into one and sometimes they want them separately. You can now select what each couple prefers.

Added audit history of who printed/emailed tax receipts and when.

The year can be included at the start of the receipt number, as either a 4 digit or 2 digit number. eg: a receipt# for 2016 might be 2016-05001 or 16-05001.
