I took this matter to our Area Auditor Trainer who forwarded it up the chain of command. The response that came back indicated that "This policy change will be considered for future audit cycles".

I agree, it's somewhat like a child asking the same question to a different parent to see if the answer changes. :) Since we have, in the past, received clear instruction from the Church accountants in Canada that we are not to add the tax to FO expenditures, I'm comfortable with continuing that pra...

In Canada, we have always been advised, by Price Comin & Johnson - Church accountants, that tax is NOT to be applied to FO checks. Since the latest note from the administation office states that tax is to be claimed for ALL disbursements, I asked for clarification from LUS. The response was "The Chu...

Standardization of phone numbers is also a concern in our area. I've made it a practise to do a phone number print-out whenever I meet with a ward clerk. I then highlite the non-standard numbers and ask the WC to correct them in the ward MLS. So far we've seen a real improvement.

I was talking to LUS yesterday on another matter and mentioned that our stake had not rec'd the CFS. The rep indicated that they will be late this month - didn't say how late. :-)

One of our wards had a similar problem related to a random bug in MLS. I called LUS and they sent down a file to restore the data in MLS.

Good luck.

MLS 3.3.1 is here.

MLS 3.3.1 downloaded today. On first glance, I like the improvements to the Budget module. The release notes indicate that it is supposed to zero out the old Budget subcategories and de-activate them. I had all of our clerks do that ahead of time so can't speak to whether that would happen in a ward...

All of our units are in Canada, however when the phone provider changes for one of the units, we (the stake) simply call up the provider and ask them to bill the stake directly. I wonder if that would work in your case? If the Canadian provider would do that, you could pay the bill in the normal man...
