More Information on Transfers/Advances

Backing out a Fund-to-Fund Transfer/Advance

A Transfer/Advance can be deleted if the posting period associated with the transfer is open and within the same fiscal year.  Transfers/Advances from a prior year cannot be deleted. 

Advance Function and Object Codes

When the advance is created, the advance out (initial) dimensions includes a 7410 function and  a 921 object code.  The advance in (initial) receipt code is 5210.

When an advance is repaid, the advance out (return) dimensions include a 7420 function code and a 922 object code.  The advance in (return) receipt code is 5220.  

No Time Restriction to Repay Advances

Per the Auditor of State's office the time restriction to repay Advances has been removed.  Previously an advance had to be repaid in the current or next fiscal year.  A repayment beyond that time would have to be processed as a transfer.  It is up to the district to know how the specific advance is to be repaid.  This will no longer be determined by the software.
