Post by ericsandan »

We have a check from BSA on scout camp that was refunded to the ward. How do we enter it in MLS?

What category did the funds come from to pay for the camp? If they came from an Other:AMFA category then deposit the funds into that category. If depositing the funds into the Other:AMFA category results in a surplus follow the procedures found here. If the funds came out of a budget category then deposit the funds in that budget category.

Returning the refund to a budget category is handled the same as an advance disbursement excess. A "Tithing and Other Offerings" slip is filled out. In the Other category, cross out "Other" and write in the budget category name.
