Re-imbursement to Branch from District

Postby fifers34 » Sat Apr 21, 2012 10:44 pm


Our branches have paid for cub and boy scout re-charter fees. It seems the district should reimburse the branches, and then have Salt Lake reimburse the District. Can anyone help me understand how this process actually works? What needs to be done in MLS?

The normal process is that the stake or district writes a check directly to the Boy Scout council for scout registration fees. The stake/district simply uses a special category (available only to stakes/districts) and then is automatically reimbursed by Church headquarters.

Given that the branch paid the fees directly, the branch should give documentation to the district for what was paid. Then the district can use that special category to write a check back to the branch for that amount.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.
