Fiscal Year-End Reporting of Inventories, Accounts Receivable and Unearned Revenues

The Financial Services Office is responsible for gathering information on the inventories, accounts receivable and unearned revenues or prepaid expenses throughout the University of Arizona for accurate reporting in the annual financial statements. Units that maintain balances in any of these categories are required to provide valuations with complete supporting documentation to the Financial Services Office.

Operational Advances - New Report Available

A new report is available to use for outstanding operational advances. This report is located in Analytics on the dashboard General – Financial Management: Overview tab under Reconciliation Reports on the far right hand side of the page.  Operational Advances can be searched by several fields including Employee Id.  The report will calculate the outstanding balance owed by using the original disbursement voucher less any documents used to partially settle the advance. Once the balance is cleared on an operational advance, it will no longer show on the report.  

New Reference Guides for Opening and Closing Accounts

In collaboration with the Budget Office and the Financial Services Office, new reference guides for opening and closing accounts are now available. They are located in the Financial Management Reference Section of the Financial Services webpage. See http://www.fso.arizona.edu/financial-management/adding-accounts.
