FINANCE 101 Your guide to Finance
INTRODUCTION As an org of La Salle, we are subjected to the rules and regulations of CSO (Council of Student Organizations) The CSO implements specific protocol for document processing
INTRODUCTION TERMS AND DEFINITION An organization would be entitled an Operational Fund by the university – This is a sum of money given by the University through S-LIFE to an organization, which is regulated by the CSO. – Each year, the university will give each organization an Operational Fund. Any excess funds remaining after each year in the OperFund will be given back to the university. – The CSO treasurer would be the one regulating the use of the Operational Fund.
INTRODUCTION TERMS AND DEFINITION An organization also has its OWN money. The Working Fund represents the organization’s money made through fundraising activities, donations or solicitations. Composed of two types of funds: – Depository Funds: deposited on the Accounting office – Petty Cash Funds: money held by the org treasurer for small expenses Does not exceed P3000

KNOWING THE DIFFERENT KINDS OF DOCUMENTS/PROCESSES
1.) LOE – List of Expenses This is a post-activity document required for all activities where expenses were incurred. This document summarizes all the expenses incurred for an activity. ONE ACTIVITY = ONE LOE (if there is/are an expense(s)). – If there is no expense, instead of a LOE, a No expense document is submitted
2.) RM – Reimbursement Memo Reimbursement is a procedure done when officers used personal money for expenses incurred for an activity. This would mean that the treasurer would withdraw money from the Depository Fund AFTER the associated activity.

6.) BT – Book Transfer Book Transfer is a procedure where funds are transferred from one account into another within the same institution One example of this is when an organization pays for food expenses transacted with establishments within the university (e.g. La Casita) A Book transfer memo is submitted for activities involving Book Transfer

7.) Petty Cash Petty Cash is the funds held by the treasurer. This cannot exceed P3000. A Establishment of Petty Cash should be first done. Each expense taken from the Petty Cash should not exceed P100.
7.) Petty Cash To regain the money taken for expenses from the Petty Cash Fund, a process called Replenishment is done. Replenishment “resets” the Petty Cash Fund. Cash will be withdrawn from the Depository Fund to compensate for the funds taken from the PCF.
