Payable Due to Funding Source (FS) - Payments due to the FS from client 


Payments due to the FS, can be either accrual basis or cash basis depending on the Accounting Method selected for the payment transactions code.  The FS GL mapping will determine the payable account to credit when the entry is made.

After scheduled billing is processed, then upon the due date (scheduled billing is required) 


Accrual Post When Invoiced 

Upon Scheduled Billing of the Payment Amount 


Cash Basis (Post when invoiced) 

Upon applying the payment via cash management to the invoiced/Billed payment amount due to the FS. 


Once the entry is recorded, the Current Payable to Funding Source Report will reflect the amounts due to the FS, based on the timing outlined. 


GAIN ON SALE Accounting Treatment Options


For a sale transaction, the client has the option of recording the gain on sale at the time of the sale (cash basis) or recording the gain over the remaining term of the sold contract. 


Cash Basis 

ASPIRE naturally records the gain at the time of the sale transactions as mapped in the FS GL mapping.   


Amortize over remaining term 

After the sale transaction is processed. 

NOTE:  This is a key point, do not set up the GOS contract item until the sale transaction has been posted, otherwise, the gain will be accelerated at the time the sale transaction is posted.


Set up a non-financed Contract item of type Contract_Credit to amortize over the remaining term for the amount of the GOS.   The Debit account for this Contract Item should map to the GOS account of the FS.
