Check Deposit-Authorized Signer on Corp Into Corp

Question: 
What are the rules governing accepting checks made out to an authorized signer on a corporation into the corporation. For example I am the vice president on ABC INC. Can I deposit checks payable to me into that corporation?
Answer: 

by David Dickinson

Anyone can make a deposit. Only those authorized by the corporate resolution can make other transactions, like withdraws and transfers.

Answer: 

by Randy Carey:

As David indicated, the answer is yes. However, depending on the frequency and the dollar amount involved, if the bank becomes aware of it, a full explanation should be sought out from the corporation (and not from person doing the activity). Such transactions are unusual and could be a symptom of other issues going on. An attempt at covering up the embezzlement of funds or other illegal activity may be the underlying cause for such actions.
