Budget Issue, Missing Money?

Postby jamhall » Sun Dec 06, 2015 8:46 am

Last June, while I was out of town, the assistant financial clerk wrote five checks to pay some utilities for some members, authorized by the Bishop. When I came back I noticed that the checks had been written from the Administration Budget rather than from Fast Offerings. I was able to change the category and get this corrected. Yesterday, I noticed that the Admin budget was lower than expected. After some investigation, I figured out that sometime between last Sunday and yesterday, the money has been taken out of the Administration budget again. When I open the expense, there is a duplicate entry, one for the Admin Budget and one for Fast Offerings. We have been double-charged for the expense.

I am thinking I must have done something wrong when I changed the category and someone at CHQ has reversed what I did but also caused another problem by making it so we are double-charged for the expenses. I am planning on calling HQ tomorrow to try and get some help on this but figured I would check here as well.

The subject line is misleading. The money isn't really missing, I know where it went. I just need to figure out how to correct the mistake.
