Re: Payment Timing for ACH Expense Reimbursement

I too have noticed more than one completed ACH reimbursement (member received funds) that subsequently show up on the following months UFS as an "Outstanding Reconciliation item".

Sincerely
a Ward Financial clerk

Re: Electronic reimbursements

I've created a flowchart of what process we are going to try using. Maybe this is helpful to others. It is based on feedback I received on this thread and our preferences for our ward based on our previous process. Awsome, Thanks so much. As a financial clerk everyone else has been asking me about ...

Re: Electronic reimbursements

...maybe I do keep them around.... Mm... I'll have to decide when I start to get a feel for the workflow. My records retention is not set in stone. To a more reasonable mind, it does seem that once receipts I have scanned are uploaded the hard copy can be shredded. Some time ago I read here that th...

Re: Electronic reimbursements

I'm not the one you asked, however because I was given paper, I staple the previously scanned original paper receipts to a page printed from LCR showing the completed ACH report. I expect to keep doing this until our next audit. I expect to keep those receipts for the standard (USA) 3 Years plus cur...

Re: ACH "Issued" vs "Cleared"

... it appears an email comes out weekly to all the bishopric members if reimbursements are still awaiting the bishop's final review. Yes, I can confirm this. I (fin clerk) entered another ACH payment w/scanned receipts last Saturday. The first counselor did the 2nd approval on-line. Friday we rece...

Re: Purging an Expense in LCR

Transfer Possibly related? I entered a transfer upon 'standing orders' from the Bishop (for missionary support). Then ended up needing to "rejecting" my newly entered transfer. It still sat in the queue for the 2nd approval. A couple of days later I noticed the tiny trash can to the right ...

Re: Electronic reimbursements

Fin Clerk here, Having tried 3 ACH reimbursements (scanned receipts & remote 2nd approver) I think I will suggest to the Bishopric our primary workflow. It should be that immediately before or after counting, with two authorized persons present and able to log into LCR that we get as much done a...

Re: Electronic reimbursements

My free opinion, for what it's worth. I would reimburse in the name of the requester only. (Cleaner audit wise?) Also, as a financial clerk it has come to my attention that some married couples maintain separate bank accounts. (And get upset if their donations are recorded under their partners name....

Paper check on MLS only Bishop able to approve?

We are "Activated" for the new financial system. Last Sunday I printed a paper check alone from MLS just like the "good old days" (However we had just finished transmitting our batch so MLS may have cached the Bishops counselors login credentials?) Moments after printing the pape...

Android, Office Lens vs Tiny Scanner

Having just installed MS Office lens I'm here reporting that it appears to automatically crop and then zoom in on the cropped section. Based on just seeing this much I will likely uninstall "Tiny Scanner" and use Office Lense. Tiny Scanner seemed to require manual cropping and contrast adj...
