1000003 – Cash and Cash Equivalents Budgetary

Account Account Type Description
1000010 Deposits in Transit This account is used to record all cash received by an agency, but not yet deposited in a local bank account. Use this account if the college received a check from another state agency in July which has a June date. Deposits in transit solve timing problems between state agencies so interagency receivable and payable ledgers balance. Deposits in transit allows the state agency receiving the funds to record the deposit as revenue in old year business because the agency sending the check considers it an old year cash expenditure since the check is dated June.
1000020 Petty Cash Used to record petty cash on hand or in bank accounts for the purpose of making change or paying small obligations. Accounts 1000020 and 3100002 must equal in Special Revenue, Endowment and Agency funds.

Amounts held are considered restricted.
1000040 Non-LGIP Investments 0-90 Days Used to record the non-LGIP temporary and/or pooled investment of surplus cash balances or those investments that are readily convertible to known amounts of cash and so near their maturity when purchased that they present insignificant risk of changes in value because of changes in interest rates.

1000050 Investments with LGIP Used to record the temporary investment of surplus funds with the Local Government Investment Pool managed by the Office of the State Treasurer (OST). The balance in this account is treated as a cash equivalent in the college’s financial statements.

1000070 Cash in Bank 1 This account is used to record all cash held in the college’s primary bank account. This account should only be used when the transaction being record will reflect activity on the bank statement.
