How to handle direct debit to unit checking account

Postby wkostrewski » Sun Jul 17, 2016 12:43 pm

BYU catering provided food for our Stake's Girls' Camp and provided and invoice that reads: "Do NOT pay now. Your unit's checking account has already been charged." How do I record this expense? It appears that the only option available is to generate a check -- which is unnecessary with the direct debit. I have the receipt from BYU catering so the documentation requirement is met.

I suspect your stake will get an IROP through MLS similar to the way online distribution center orders are processed and paid. You may have to recategorize the expense once it shows up in the system so it will be debited against the proper budget category.
