1.Daily Balancing #

Brief Recap of Balancing and Closing the Day

Follow these steps to perform balancing:

  • Balance all users’ totals for the balance date
  • Manager prints the Daily Balance Summary for the Balance Date, and balance totals for all users to the day’s total
  • Run the Daily Check Register Report for balance date
  • Sum the Tax Collections Activity Report, Fee Collections Activity Report, Escrow/VIT Collections Reports, and balance the sum to the total on the Compare Daily Balance Summary for the balance date
  • Close day when balanced

Tip 

Out of balance?

Be careful when assigning batch descriptions and balance dates. We recommend using the full date and year within the description and in the balance date field so that the batch is unique and not likely to be used again accidentally in the future. If you are out of balance, check for duplicate batches. When reviewing batches, if you see that a user has two batches with the same balance date, then you may need to change the balance date on one to the next day.

Another reason you may be out of balance is if a batch was reopened and used again. Compare the batch close dates with the date displayed on your reports.

You can also perform a payment search (File > Open > Payment) by date range and use the results to identify voided payments or mistyped payment amounts.

1.1.Running the Daily Balance Summary Report #

Purpose

Use this procedure to balance your drawer and close out the day at the end of the day, after you have collected the day’s payments.


Note:  All active days must be officially closed out in order to close out the month, and the year.


Procedure

  1. In PACS Collections, choose Activities > Daily Collections > Daily Balance Summary Report.
  2. In the Daily Balance Summary Report dialog box, choose one of the following options:

    Balancing Procedures, Daily Balance Summary Report, 8109x

    • All Batches – Includes all batches, whether opened or closed, in the report.
    • One Batch – Includes a specific batch in the report. Select the name of the batch from the drop-down list.

      Tip  The One Batch option is used to balance your batch. Print out the report, balance your drawer, and go back to the window to close the batch. The Close Batch check box is selected by default unless you choose All Batches which changes the Close Batch option to unavailable.


    • Batch Balance Date – Includes all batches balanced within a certain time frame. Select the date from the drop-down calendar for the Begin field and the End field. You can also type the date in MM/DD/YYYY format.

      Tip  If you have multiple employees using a single batch, select the One Batch and Pacs User options to see the monies posted by one user. (However, if Close Batch is selected when you generate the report, then the batch closes for all users.) After receiving the Balance Summary Report from all employees, the supervisor can generate a single report for all users and compare those totals with the totals on the reports given to them by the individual batch users. If discrepancies are found, reopened the batch if needed to correct them. A batch can be reopened if the balance date has not been reported to the entities and the day is not closed. If the day is already closed, a correction batch can be used in another day.

      If you create multiple batches (such as Escrow, VIT, Refund, and Special Inventory in addition to regular collections, the user could run the report for the Batch Balance Date to see all those monies in all of the batches on that batch balance date.


  3. To include batch data associated with one specific user, select the Pacs User option and choose the user name from the drop-down list.
  4. To close the batch or batches listed in the report, choose Close Batch.

    Tip  This option is generally not recommended. Generally, you should print out the report first and balance your drawer, then close the batch.


  5. To create an event recording the printing of this report, select Generate Event.
  6. Click Preview to review the report on screen, or click Print to print a copy of the report.

Additionally, penalty M&O and penalty I&S can not be netted out from the amount being distributed.


If you choose not to use PACS Distribution module, you can perform distributions based off of reports you generate.

Prerequisite

  • Chart of Accounts have been created and mapped to entities’ Distribution Breakdown
  • The day is closed

Procedure

  1. In PACS Collections, choose Activities > Daily Collections > Distribute.
  2. Use the arrows in the Batch Distribution Wizard code chooser to select those charts of accounts for which you are cutting checks or making ACH deposits.

  3. If needed, adjust the As of Date.
  4. Click Preview to review the report on screen, or click Print to print a copy of the report.

6.Monthly & Daily Balancing #

Procedure

  1. Count the drawer to determine how much money was collected.
  2. Run the Daily Balance Detail or Summary using the options to match the drawer counted.
  3. If each drawer has its own batch, run Daily Balance Report for the batch that matches the drawer.
  4. If the collections were collected together for the day and counted together, run the Daily Balance Report for the date range of the collections. For example, if I counted the money for today then the Report should be run for just today, but if the money counted was for Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, then the Report should be run for that date range.
  5. The total on the Detail or Summary report should match the total collected for the same criteria, batch, date range, etc. The total paid should match the amount of money counted. The check amounts should equal the total at the bottom of the Payments and Check amounts, and the same procedure applies for cash. The last column is the total of the cash and checks.
  6. If the Daily Balance Report is run for a date range and not for a single batch the payments will be grouped in batch order. If the total paid does not balance to the amount of money the user counted, run the Daily Balance Detail Report to find the error. Usually the error is due to a void in the wrong batch, or numbers transposed while entering the payment in the payment cart.
  7. Compare the checks to the amounts on the reports. Where a difference is found, research to find the problem. If the amount entered is wrong, void the payment in the batch it was taken in, and repay the payment correctly in the same batch.
  8. The user can print the tax collections reports (detail or summary) for the same criteria as the Daily Balance Reports to balance to the Tax Collections Reports.
  9. At the end of the month, the user should run a Tax Collections Report, a Month to Date recap and a Year to Date Recap.
  10. The Tax Collections report reflects collections for the criteria specified that should be a date range for the month. The amounts collected are the amounts applied to taxes due. The amount paid at the bottom of the report reflects the total amount of money collected.
  11. The year-to-date recap for the current month: Balance the year-to-date recap across for every year. For example, Adjusted tax – Effective Taxes Paid = Balance Base Tax Paid + Penalty + Interest + Attorney Fee + Overage = Payments Original Roll – Adjustments = Adjusted Tax.
  12. Verify the numbers on the Month to Date Recap to the current Year to Date Recap.
  13. The following columns allow the user to take the amount from the prior month YTD:
    • Recap + the MTD recap amounts to = the current YTD
    • Base Tax Paid
    • Under
    • Discounts
    • Effective Taxes Paid
    • Penalty
    • Interest
    • Attorney Fee
    • Overage
    • Payments
  14. The following columns allow the user to take totals from the Modified Bill Report for the current month + the prior month YTD to equal the current month YTD:
    • Adjustments
    • Adjusted Tax
