Sufficient Funds Checking

Sufficient funds checking is an option that can be used to stop the processing of e-doc transactions when an account does not have a balance large enough to cover expense transactions.

Sufficient funds checking can be established on an account-by-account basis. If the TP Sufficient Funds Check option on an account is selected and the Account Sufficient Funds Code is set to a value other than 'N' (no checking), then the account is checked for sufficient funds by the KFS.

Note: r more information about the TP Sufficient Funds Check option, see Account.

The account sufficient funds code of an account determines the level at which sufficient funds is checked. The options are:

Object Code: The specific object code to which expenses are being applied is checked to see whether sufficient budget exists.

Level: The object level with which the expense object code is associated is checked to see whether sufficient budget exists.

Consolidation: The consolidation level with which the expense object code is associated is checked to see whether sufficient budget exists.

Account: The budget balances of all expense object codes on the account are added up and checked to see whether sufficient budget exists.

Cash: The cash balance of the account is checked to see whether sufficient cash exists.

Object code, level, consolidation and account checks are all made by comparing budget to actuals. The calculation used is:

Sufficient Funds = Budget - Actuals - Encumbrances +/- Pending Ledger Entries

Cash checking uses a different formula:

Sufficient Funds = Cash Balance - Liabilities - Encumbrances +/- Pending Ledger Entries

Note: The encumbrances include pre-encumbrances, external encumbrances, and internal encumbrances, depending on the account.

If the KFS finds that an account does not have sufficient funds, it presents the user with an error message and does not allow further processing of the document.
