transferring funds

Postby greekdrummer » Fri Apr 07, 2017 7:29 pm

Looking at the Missionary Fund account in my Branch there are negative amounts there for missionaries who have returned some time ago.
Upon advice I was told that Branch Clerks can go into the system and transfer funds between sub accounts to zero out these amounts. What is the procedure for doing this?

I'm sure someone will come along and give the details shortly. But there's a few things to check first:

First, is the Ward Missionary fund as a whole negative? If so, you've got bigger problems that will have to be addressed. You can't just make negative numbers go away. They have to be canceled by real money.

Second, I'd review all donations to make sure that a donation intended for a missionary sub-account wasn't deposited somewhere else by mistake.

Lastly, if you feel that everything is true an accurate, you can transfer funds from the top-level Ward Missionary to zero out the sub accounts. I would not transfer funds from another sub-account unless you know the full story of what's going on. Otherwise, you're robbing Peter to pay Paul.
