Cheatham PTA Financial Forms by dandanhuanghuang


									Financial Guidelines
Cheatham Elementary School PTA
There are basic guidelines established by the National, State and Local PTA that assist us with proper financial
accounting and practices. Additionally, as an officer of the Cheatham PTA, proper record keeping and cash control
practices are our responsibility and they also protect us from liability issues! The following procedures have been
established to help us properly manage our finances:
  P Itemized Receipt Forms/Itemized Check Forms/Check Request Forms are located in the Treasurer file in the
    PTA work room on the second floor.
  P When collecting/submitting cash or checks for deposit, please do the following:
     w Complete an Itemized Receipt Form and Itemized Check Form, if applicable.
     w Itemize all checks into groups of 30 and count all cash by denomination and record accordingly.
     w Cash must be counted by two people; the person submitting the deposit and one other
        PTA member.
  P Contact me ASAP so that we can arrange to transfer the deposit (I am home during the day and an not too far from
    the school ). If I am not available, you may also contact Mary Summers or Michelle Kretzschmar. For those
    officers with large deposits, please contact me prior to your event so that we may arrange a mutually
    acceptable practice of handling the deposits (preferably before 5 p.m. when the bank closes ). Please do not leave any
    deposits in the PTA mailboxes/workroom.
  P Please remember that until a deposit is in the PTA bank account, it does not belong to the PTA. The deposit
    is your liability until it is transferred to me!
  P Please do the following when submitting a request for reimbursement:
       w Fill out the request completely, including dates, delivery preference, category and reason for the
       w An original receipt or vendor bill must accompany the request. Photocopies or hand written receipts
          can not be accepted - no exceptions.
       w Please note that due to our 501(3)(c) tax exempt status, PTA is unable to reimburse for any sales tax!
          Please obtain a tax exempt form prior to your purchase or shop at a retailer that has an agreement with
          our PTA on file (list in the PTA workroom). There are no exceptions.
       w Please put your completed Check Request form in the Treasurer's mailbox in the PTA workroom.
          Requests sent via email are no longer accepted. I check the box several times per week. If you need a
          check quickly, or know you will need it on a specific day, please contact me and we can arrange.
       w If you need a check for a vendor prior to an event, a bill or contract must accompany the request.
       w Please remember that the President must sign all contracts and is the only person who can legally bind
          the Cheatham PTA in a contract.
       w Please also remember that all PTA checks require two signatures; please allow enough time for Mary or
          Michelle to review the request and sign.
  P I will provide an updated budget report at each board and general meeting (or upon your request). The
    balance in your budget will be reflected in these reports. It is your responsibility, as an officer, to stay within
    the budget provided. Please notify Mary, Michelle or me immediately if you have any questions or concerns
    regarding your budget.
I look forward to working with each of you. Please contact me with any questions or anything that I can do to
assist you during the school year!
