40.30.20.4 Long-Term/Non-Current Investments

Long-term or non-current Investments are investments with a maturity date of one year or greater or which the college does not intend to sell.  The intent is to profit from the interest and dividend payments that these investments pay out from time to time.

Examples include real estate held as an investment, participating interest-earning investment contracts, and investments in non-participating interest-earning investments (non-negotiable certificates of deposit, guaranteed investment contracts with redemption terms that do not consider market rates).

Occasionally premiums and discounts are paid at the date of purchase. When this occurs, the unamortized portion is held in Fund 790 using account 1020020 for premiums and account 1020030 for discounts. With each interest payment a portion of the discount or premium will be amortized. Amortization of a discount increases the accrued interest earned and conversely, amortization of a premium decreases the accrued interest earned each period.

Investments in bonds are often made between interest dates. In such cases the purchaser pays for the previous interest earned (accrued interest) on the bonds since the last interest receipt. Accrued interest paid at the acquisition date should be booked as a debit to interest receivable.

At the end of each fiscal year, investments that have maturity date less than one (1) year in the future, or if the college anticipates selling the investments, should be moved from long-term investment accounts to short-term investments.  This will ensure correct reporting on the financial statements as required by GASB.

At the end of each fiscal year, investment balances are compared to fair market value. If a material difference (greater than 1% of the value of the portfolio) occurs, an entry for the difference is to be recorded using account 1110020 (Valuation Allowance - Investments) and account 4120050 (Gain/Loss on Investment - Non-Cash).

For funds maintaining non-pooled investments (e.g., Student body is collecting funds for a future building project invested separately), the entries will be recorded within that fund using the same mechanics as below.
