The Blessed Exchequer, also known as the Great Exchequer, is a divine being within Ferengi beliefs. The Exchequer serves as a judge in the Divine Treasury.

Once a deceased Ferengi arrives, the Blessed Exchequer reviews the dead person's profit and loss statements to determine whether they are successful enough to enter the Divine Treasury. Once they pass the Blessed Exchequer's review, the dead Ferengi are supervised by the Celestial Auctioneers. However, if the Ferengi's balance statements show more loss, then the Exchequer sentences them to the Vault of Eternal Destitution. (DS9 episode: "Little Green Men")

Ferengi often make prayers to the Blessed Exchequer where they would deposit latinum into a bank where a likeness of the Exchequer is present. During these prayers, the Ferengi often chant the words "Blessed Exchequer, whose greed is eternal, allow this bribe to open your ears and hear this plea from your most humble debtor." (DS9 episodes: "The Emperor's New Cloak", "The Dogs of War")

In the mirror universe, the Ferengi likewise believed in the Blessed Exchequer. (DS9 - Mirror Universe novel: Saturn's Children)
