Hadleigh and Monk’s Eleigh URC Monthly Finance Report.
August 2017
.

Registered Charity, No 1151084.
There was an operational deficit of £15,823.66. The bulk of this was in connection with the buildings works taking place in the ACC. I have, as a precaution requested a bridging loan of £15,000.00 to cover any possible temporary deficit arising between contractors’ bill being paid and the receipt of grants to cover some of the costs.
The elders will be recommending our Ministry and Mission (M&M) contributions for 2018 at the next church meeting. Our increase is in the region of £210.00 per month. The M&M fund is the most important one operated by the URC.

Allocations (formerly known as Funds).
These have been established to bring clarity to our accounting . Certain monies are ‘restricted’ to the  purpose for which the funding was intended. E.g. Some of our buildings works have been funded by grant-givers. I must ensure that those monies are employed for that purpose.

Funds.
Funds may be employed on any of the accounts . E.g. The Operational Account might contain General, Designated and Restricted funds. It is my intention at some stage after I have been running the new scheme for a little, and have become more familiar with it,  to shew all three on each Account Report.
General. May be employed as required without restriction/
Designated May also be employed as required but may sometimes require the authorisation of the Elders
Restricted May only be employed for the purpose agreed with the donator. Restrictions are typically applied when we receive a grant.
Description of the worksheets
Detailed Cash-flow is the one I have just described. Bank Details describes our bank status. Column P is the one of interest. The Bank Summary and Funds summarises our bank accounts (as in Bank Details col P), and the Buildings and General Funds. You will note that we have paid quite a number of bills from the church G/F, some of which will be covered by other grants.
The Spreadsheet opens at the 'Bank Summary and Funds work-sheet' (Please click 'No' when asked to 'update links to other sources'). This worksheet lists our bank balances and funds
