Re: New ward finances set up

What our stake has done for the 2 quarters after the split is just set the percentage that the affected wards will receive to zero and then the stake transfers the correct amount to each of the wards involved. That sounds like an interesting idea. The stake can then do the calculations and have mor...

Re: New ward finances set up

The stake will need to instruct the two wards to transfer funds/cut checks to to the new ward. I assume the SP will determine the amount after input from the affected bishops. Unless the new ward has it's first meeting tomorrow, it's first quarterly report won't be until 2nd Quarter, which means it...

New ward finances set up

Our stake will be creating a new 3rd ward out of two very large existing wards. As stake finance clerk, is there anything I need to do help set up the new ward financially or does CHQ handle everything? Will the new ward receive starter funds from the two existing wards or will it have to wait for i...

Has anyone had problems with a member's reimbursement account not being recognized for ACH payments? With ACH reimbursements finally going live for us this weekend, we wanted to try it out. Our first ACH reimbursement attempt belonged to a sister who never used online donations before but uses a che...

Eagle Scout project funding

I understand the issue of Scout funding will be a moot point after 2019 but until then we press on. Recently I've had a situation surface concerning a donation to cover supplies for an Eagle Scout project which lead to a question about funding such projects. A local business wrote a check to the tro...

Re: New Auditing Procedure

I just completed our stake audit yesterday (as stake finance clerk). The major change I noticed is when the auditor began, the first screen prompted him to pre-select which expenses he wanted to review, which should've been done prior to the audit. I still had to produce the supporting documentation...

Re: MLS Error 1: Unable to Transmit

From one of our wards in Dayton Ohio East Stake at 17:50L:

"I happened to still be at church so I tried it again. The church already has sent a patch to update MLS. The retry of our submission was successful. "

Looks like patches are being pushed out to fix the issue.

FHC cash donations

Our FHC does not have its own separate finance account and receives funding from the stake budget. We recently had a non-member patron make a $100 cash donation to the FHC and requested a receipt for tax purposes. In researching our director’s question regarding how to issue a tax receipt, I finally...

I've emailed donation statments to members who moved but only after they request it. There really doesn't seem to be a need to send an IOS since members can request one from the clerk at any time.

MLS not recognizing outgoing data

We have been experiencing a problem with MLS not recognizing outgoing data. Our stake technology specialist has tried to work the issue but has made little progress. After completing an update (such as writing a check, entering donations, recording an ordinance, requesting MR move in, updating addre...
