St John's Banking Codes
When you transfer or deposit funds into our Commonwealth or Bendigo bank accounts, would you please add the specific code to the transaction description (the one that we get) so that its purpose can be correctly allocated by our accounting system.
Please put the code first in the transaction description, rather than last, because some descriptions are shortened when we get them.
Please use the word TITHE (or GIVING) as the transaction description for all OFFERTORY deposits. Please use uppercase as shown. There is no need to add your name for offertory deposits.
Other special codes can be used in the transaction descriptions for funds transferred to or deposited (at the bank) in the church accounts for specific purposes, as detailed below. Again, please put the code first in the transaction description.
These codes do not apply to your gifts to the building fund accounts.
^ ALL codes are case sensitive. i.e. Please use all UPPERCASE codes as shown.
# We do not provide receipts nor do we arrange for the mission you are supporting to provide them. If you want a receipt, please send your gift directly to the mission you're supporting. If you need banking information for that mission, please email the Treasurer who will forward those details to you.
PLEASE NOTE: Combining two or more codes in one transaction will not work. Our automated system will recognise the TITHE or GIVING code first and ignore any other code(s). Therefore please use each gift or payment code in a separate transaction.
