An Other Bank Transaction refers to any bank transaction other than a check or bank deposit.
You can use Other Bank Transactions to represent a transfer of funds from one bank account to another, and to record transactions such as interest, bank fees and miscellaneous deposits.
You might also use Other Bank Transactions for bank fees, electronic deposits made outside of Buildium, and adjustments to your bank balance.

If you need to edit or delete an other bank transaction, navigate to the bank account it was recorded in, then select the transaction to make changes. Other bank transactions are noted with OTHR in the check number field.
If an other bank transaction has been reconciled, you will need to undo the reconciliation before you are able to make changes or delete it.
