Ward Rechartering Costs

Postby wrigjef » Sat Feb 26, 2011 1:14 pm

Are these costs to be paid by the stake out of a reimbursable account? We just had a ward cut checks for rechartering and wants to know if they will get reimbursed. My guess is that the stake should write a check to the ward from the scout-reimbursed account (whatever it's called). Is this correct?

BSA rechartering expenses are reimbursed by the Church. The local rechartering expense can be done one of two ways. Either the stake can pay it for the ward or the ward can pay and then submit a reimbursement request to the stake. The stake then enters the expense in MLS and will receive a credit/reimbursement from CHQ. Since it has been a long while since I've seen this I can't remember the expense entry procedure in MLS. I vaguely remember there was a reimbursement code/account that was used.

The stake uses the Reimbursable Expenses:Scout Registration category to pay such expenses, and the cost will be immediately reimbursed.

Since a ward went ahead and paid this, can I just write the warm a check from the stake reimbursed expenses:scout registration?

As long as you have documentation that shows that the amount paid was for scout registration, that should be fine.
