Reassigning expenses

Postby hopperjd8770 » Wed Dec 05, 2012 9:12 pm

Last week in the process of processing some reimbursement checks I incorrectly assigned an expense to the wrong budget category. The checks have already be disbursed. Should I go back into MLS to reassigned that expense to the correct budget category? Is there a way of doing that or should just leave it alone?

Yes, you can change the category after the check has been given to the payee. You just go into View/Edit Expenses, find the expense (by check #) and change the category. When you save the change, you'll be asked to give a reason.

Changing the category can certainly be appropriate. You should double check to make sure that your expense documentation accurately reflects the category it is now charged against.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.
