FY24 Financial Services Year End Deadlines

Loyola Community,

Loyola’s Fiscal Year-end of June 30, 2024, is rapidly approaching! Please review the important year-end deadlines below.

Why is the Fiscal Year-end so important?
The University is required to prepare financial statements in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). The financial statements provide an overview of the financial position of LUC as of June 30th; therefore, it is critical that all revenues and expenses that relate to the fiscal year (July 1 – June 30) are captured accurately.

Year-End Procedure and Deadline Presentations
The Financial Services Division Fiscal year end presentations can be found at the following link: https://www.luc.edu/finance/fiscalyear-endinformation/

Expense Accruals

  • Please continue to send payment requests to Accounts Payable after July 9th. AP will make the determination if the request qualifies for an accrual.
  • Service POs must be accrued manually for services June 30th and prior. If you do not have an invoice for services rendered in FY2024, please send an expense accrual to the General Accounting department.

If you DO NOT have an FY2024 invoice to submit a payment requisition by July 1, 2024, submit an expense accrual form to General Accounting (accounting@luc.edu) to set up an expense accrual, documentation to support the accrual will be needed. Use the Year End Expense Accrual Form found under the General Accounting Forms.

Purchasing: Purchase Orders

  • Invoices received by departments for items ordered using a purchase order should be sent immediately to Accounts Payable for payment processing.
  • Purchase orders that have not been paid, but have a receipt processed against the order in the Lawson system (“received, not invoiced”) by June 30th will be accrued as an expense in FY 2024.

  • For any grants with a 6/30/2024 or earlier end date that are expected to continue into the next fiscal year SPA will need one of the following provided by Monday, June 10, 2024: (a) an Advanced Account Form with appropriate back-up to guarantee expense past the end date in the absence of a fully executed agreement/extension OR (b) the fully executed agreement/extension.  Find the Advanced Account Authorization Policy and form online at http://www.luc.edu/spa/policies.shtml.
  • Please contact your Sponsored Program Accounting representative for additional information and resources

Note: FY2024 budgets will be carried forward to FY2025 in July. In mid-July budgets on sponsored program reports may appear to be $0.00 and your AU may appear to be overdrawn during the reconciliation/carry-forward process, but you may continue to spend on your sponsored AUs normally during this time. Budgets will be viewable again on reports run toward the end of July. Please contact GRNTCON@luc.edu if you have questions about the annual budget reconciliation and carry forward process for the University’s sponsored programs.

If you have any questions regarding the above procedures, please contact the appropriate department (see Finance Key Contacts). The entire Financial Services team appreciates your efforts, and we look forward to a successful and efficient year-end close!
