The blessing of a child and the creation of a membership record does not go hand in hand. A child can be blessed without ever having a membership created. A record for the child can be created without a child ever having a blessing. If these 3 children are all under the age of 18, then it is up to t...

I've contacted a few finance managers on this subject. I've updated the wiki site and added the section 'Determining Tax Amount Entered in MLS.' There are a lot of different situations depending on location. I had to be brief to take into consideration a...

The important thing to be careful of with this situation is that the bishop isn't making any arrangements with the donors to give the family fast offering funds if the donations are going to fast offerings. He can encourage the donors to give generously to the fast offering fund if they wanted the t...

I'm trying to remember. I know this was hashed out on the clerks list some years back. I think the conferring of later keys supersedes the prior one. For example, if you're a High Priest, then does it really matter how you were ordained an Elder? One the other side, I think it creates some issues a...

In this situation, I think I would reconcile them starting at December 2007, then move forward from there. It would be as if they just recently got the computer and moved onto MLS. It's not a good idea to force balances in December 2007. You should force balances starting in January 2005 if you are...

The money is automatically taken out of the other account when the check bounces. Make sure that you also put in a Temporary Item in your reconciliation for the month that it shows on your financial statement until HQ adjusts it back to the other account. Please note that money will not be taken ou...

If you have a balance in the plain 'other' account it is because something was entered in from a reconcile. This is usually because of an NSF Check, a deposit error, or an incorrect entry. You can find out where the balance came from in your Income and Expense Report. Select 'Details by Sub-Category...
