2 © 2008 Brigham Young University–Idaho ST-101 is the sales tax exemption form. Purchasing has worked with many vendors in the area and supplied it for their records. If a copy is needed for a vendor for sales in Idaho we are happy to provide that to you. Purchase Orders – Purchasing will take care of exemption Accounts Payable – If an invoice or other type of payment request to a vendor is sent to Accounts Payable and sales tax is included on the request an ST-101 will be included with payment to vendor. The payment sent will be less the sales tax. We can’t take the exemption or request a refund for sales tax paid in any form by an individual. If an employee purchases something with cash or a personal credit card and asks for reimbursement we aren’t eligible for the exemption. Idaho Sales Tax Exemption

If they claim they don’t have it on file unless you are carrying one with you they will collect sales tax. A report is created each month from purchase card transactions with any Idaho sales tax and we will use that amount as a credit when we submit our sales tax collected for the University.

9 © 2008 Brigham Young University–Idaho Memorandum Date: 13 November 2013 To: All Campus Personnel From: Darin Lee, Purchasing and Travel Director Subject: 2013 Year End Purchases The end of the year is fast approaching and some departments/colleges are preparing to make purchases against the 2013 budget year. Typically, the number of purchase requisitions handled by our department increases significantly during this time. Due to the end of year demands, we ask your cooperation in generating purchase requisitions as early as possible. For those accounts which require delivery of items prior to December 31st, please submit requisitions as soon as possible. For those requiring encumbrance before year end, but delivery can occur in 2014, please submit requisitions to our office before 5:00 p.m. on Friday, December 6, 2013. Meeting this date should allow sufficient time for Purchasing personnel to get clarification on requisitions prior to campus personnel leaving for Christmas break. We will do our best to process any requisitions received after the date noted above and encumber funds in this current year. Please contact our offices at ext. 2312 if you have questions or concerns about your needs. Thank you for your consideration and it is our pleasure to work with you and serve you! 2013 Year End Purchases

11 © 2008 Brigham Young University–Idaho The proper use of financial reports and the general ledger is vital to account stewards in meeting their fiscal stewardship responsibilities. 11 Financial Report Responsibilities

12 © 2008 Brigham Young University–Idaho Ensure proper expenditures of funds Keeping expenditures within the authorized budgetary limits Care should be taken to charge all expenses and revenues to the appropriate category which identifies the transaction rather than to an unrelated category where it appears that budget money is available. One category can be overspent while another is under spent. It is the bottom line that counts. Generation of expected revenues, if applicable to your area. Compliance with record keeping requirements of the University Financial Report Responsibilities 12

13 © 2008 Brigham Young University–Idaho The account steward should review financial reports each month. The verification of each transaction in the general ledger may be assigned to another person. They should be communicating any issues with the steward. An electronic record will be kept of each time a report is accessed on the internet and is subject to monitoring by Financial Services and Auditors. If stewards are not reviewing in a timely manner the accounts they are responsible for an email will be sent. It will list the accounts that haven’t been reviewed recently. This is also a good way to make sure we are up to date on any account steward changes. Check the accounts listed in the email to make sure you should be steward of the account(s). If not reply and we will resolve the issue. Financial Report Review 13

14 © 2008 Brigham Young University–Idaho Review Email 14

15 © 2008 Brigham Young University–Idaho It is much easier to find a problem when you are looking monthly rather than waiting until the end of the year. Also look at bottom line. Begin in December doing a comprehensive review that continues through year end closing in January. We email stewards and office assistants as we work through year end processes with reminders to review reports and when the closing will take place. We have a number of calls in February and March asking about issues in the prior year. Even if there is a problem discovered it is too late to do anything about it in the prior year’s records.
