Recording Deposits As Assets

Sometimes you might need to make a deposit to establish credit or as an advance or a reserve against future services you expect to receive. This type of deposit is considered an asset and should be recorded as such. Deposits of this nature technically belong to you and increase the value of the company. The first time you write a check for a deposit you might need to set up a new account to track your company's deposits.
