1.YEAR END – ACCRUALS
An accrual is necessary for goods or services that were received on or prior to June 30th or travel that occurs prior to June 30. Fiscal 13 expenses can be accrued until 4:00 pm on July 17. The process is different depending on whether or not you have an invoice in hand by July 17.
Invoice in Hand by July 17
There is no need to send an email request. Simply complete the Accounts Payable voucher as normal with two differences:
1. Ad hoc Susan Pavis at the end of the workflow path after Accounts Payable.
2. Note in “Instructions to AP” that this is a Fiscal 13 accrual.
Invoice not Received by July 17
Email Susan Pavis at firstname.lastname@example.org by 4:00 pm on July 17th. The email should have all the necessary information such as vendor, amount, smartkey/account and dates of goods or services (which must be prior to June 30th). Please copy the appropriate approver on the email. Susan will process a Fiscal 13 charge to the smartkey. When the actual invoice is received, complete an accounts payable voucher in Fiscal 14, charging the department smartkey, and ad hoc Susan Pavis into workflow as an approver at the end of the workflow. Note in “Instructions to AP” that the voucher was accrued.
2. PCARDS – CHARGES NOT APPEARING ON FINAL VOUCHER
Charges made on your PCard during the last week of June may not be appearing on the END_JUN13 voucher. This is often due to the vendor not submitting the charge to the credit card processor in a timely manner. If you are aware of this situation you should accrue the expense according to the Paragraph in Section 1 above titled “Invoice not Received by July 17”.
Fiscal 13 PCard vouchers are due July 9th. Please review and act on all PCard vouchers routed to you for approval by July 17th. If you have any questions or problems submitting and/or approving your voucher, contact email@example.com
