Matter to Matter Internal Trust Funds Transfer

With our matter-to-matter internal transfer tool, you can transfer funds between:

  • Trust accounts for the same matter and client
  • Matters for the same client
  • Matters belonging to different clients

Important to Know

  • This action is used strictly for appropriate trust fund accounting. Your money will not be moved from one bank to another. 
  • A Matter to Matter Internal Trust Funds Transfer is a great tool when changing trust banks. Just create a transfer for the same matter and select the appropriate banks. For additional information, see Switching Trust Banks.
  • This function will automatically create and link two transactions, which makes it reliable should you need to make changes later. If you delete one of the transactions, you will delete the other, too.
