Before you make any cash deposits, you must have the correct deposit slips and account number so that the cash is deposited into the proper account. Knowing how to make cash deposits will speed up the counting and deposit process for the bank teller. Businesses more than individuals use a special deposit slip that helps count up the money to be deposited into a bank account.

Step 1

Obtain cash deposit slips from your bank. If the bank does not have these slips made up for your account, you can use blank cash slips. Write your name, address, city and state on the top portion of the deposit slip. Where it says, "Account Number," enter your bank or savings account number. Write the date on the slip.

Step 2

Fill out a regular deposit slip with the day's date and enter any checks that you may have on the back of the deposit slip. Total the check amount and enter on the line that says "Check Total." Set aside until the cash is counted.

Step 3

Fill in the cash counting deposit slip. You should count the $20s and enter the total on the line that says "$20." Do the same for each pile of bills you have. Count and enter coins as well.

Step 4

Total the amounts you have entered on the cash counting deposit slip, and write that amount on the bottom where it says "Total Cash."

Step 5

Enter the cash total on the bank deposit slip where it says "Currency." Add the "Checks" and "Currency" amounts, and enter on the bottom of the deposit slip where it says "Total Deposit."

Step 6

Make copies of your bank deposit slip and cash-counting slip. Place checks and cash in the money bag with the two slips and close. Lock if you have a lock bag. Take the bag to the bank, and use the night deposit drop. If the bank is open, enter the bank and have a teller handle your deposit.
