FISCAL YEAR-END INSTRUCTIONS 2003-2
|To:||All State Agencies|
|Attention:||Chief Fiscal Officer or Business Manager|
All monies received prior to July 1 are fiscal year 2002-2003 (old year) receipts and all monies received after June 30 are fiscal year 2004 (new year) receipts. The date of the check is not the controlling factor; the controlling factor is when the checks are received by your agency.
I. Fiscal Year 2002-2003 (Old Year)
1. You must make every effort to deposit prior to July 1 all monies received prior to July 1, notwithstanding Section 4-32 of the Connecticut General Statutes.
2. All old year receipts must be recorded on Series T Deposit Slips (CO-39).
Receipts deposited and validated by the bank prior to July 1 must be reported on Series S slips dated no later than June 30. These deposit slips must be immediately delivered to the State Treasurer, but in no case later than 12:00 noon, July 3rd. Hand carry if necessary. For agencies entering deposit slips on SAAAS you will have until 2:00 p.m., July 3rd.
Additional guidance for SAAAS users will be issued by the Treasurer's Office in May.
All monies collected prior to July 1 but not deposited and validated by the bank by June 30 must be deposited by July 3rd and recorded in Core-CT dated after June 30. These deposits will need to be identified by the agency and reported to the Accounting Services Division.
II. Fiscal Year 2003-2004 (New Year)
1. All monies received after June 30 will be recorded by agencies in Core-CT for FY2004.
2. Agencies should review new year deposits for refunds coded to budgeted appropriations lapsing on June 30, 2003, to ensure that they are for FY 2004 year expenditures only. Refunds for expenditures made in fiscal year 2003 to lapsing appropriations must be coded as Refunds of Prior Year Expenditures.
III. Old Deposit Slips
Please read and comply with State Accounting Manual (SAM) Section on Receipts for handling of old deposit slips at year-end. There is no need to report to the Comptroller on the unused deposit slips.
IV. Old Year Deposit Slip Corrections
To ensure that the correct fiscal year is adjusted, old year deposit slip corrections should be done on form CO-604 (Agency Correction or Adjustment Report) instead of a deposit slip.
