I am expecting some income; How can I check to see if this has been received and is available?

There are a number of ways in which you can check to see if your income has been received. The simplest  way is to establish whether or not your budget has been increased by the amount of income you expect to receive.

 To do this use the following steps:

  1. Run the standard Budget vs Expenditure query.
  2. Using the expension buttons on the left of the results screen expand the view to its lowest level.
  3. Looking in the Budget Column - the 4 th money column - scroll down to either account 3083 -Transfers from another Department or 9990 - Budget Account.
  4. You can drill further by selecting the link to reports function to the right of the report. For the line that you have expanded, select link to budget report and this will create a detailed budget view for the budget amount on that line.
  5. You will see every budget entry on that line.
