Entering a Payement to the Ward

#1

Post by kalnius »

I am a counselor in a bishopric. I had a situation come up today when entering donations that I have a question about.

We received a check from the other ward which meets in our building which was a payment for their half of an item we jointly purchased for the ward meetinghouse library.

This came out of our yearly budget under "administration." How do we now record this check and allocate it back into our ward budget using the "enter donations" section of MLS.

Thanks.

If the other unit did not fill out and provide a Tithings and Other Offerings slip with the check then you can do that. The donor will be the other unit and write in the category, "administration", on one of the blank lines of the slip. Then process the check as any other donation. You will deposit the donation into the same budget category, "administration", as the expenses were written from.

You process it just like any other check and place it in the Budget Category Administration. The same as you would if for tithing, FO, Missionary, ect.
