Treasurer's Report and Finance Committee Report May 2016

TREASURER'S REPORT:  The Financials for May are as follows:

The Balance Sheet shows overall Net Assets of $609,321. This includes both tangible and intangible assets, that latter of which includes the website. 

May's Profit and Loss Statement shows a net loss of $210.  This was primarily due to the cost of the Annual Business Conference.  Please note that the Distribution Center (DC) sales figure of $53,424 are not actually just the sales of our literature - it includes $9,981 in shipping and handling that was collected.  In the expense section for the DC, there is an offsetting Freight Out figure of $10,550.

FINANCE COMMITTEE REPORT:  Members Bill D., Jeffrey F., Melani M., and Mary Jo L., Treasurer

We welcomed a new Committee Member, Melani M., from Tennessee. Her Accounting background will be extremely helpful. 

We have been bringing Melani up to speed and we primarily have been working on reconciling the 2015 budget and preparing the new budget.  The 2016 budget was delayed because we didn't have a committee during the months last year when the new budget would have been prepared.  This process gets more involved each year because WSO keeps growing.  We hope to have it ready for the Board very soon. 

Respectfully submitted,

Mary Jo L.

ACA WSO Treasurer

Treasurer's Report and Finance Committee Report April 2016

TREASURER’S REPORT: The 7th Tradition Contributions for April totaled $4,822. The list of these contributions is shown on the Donations sub-tab under Treasurer’s Report.

The Profit and Loss Statement (P&L) reflects the new format I mentioned last month for the Distribution Center (DC) cost center – that we can see Gross Sales at a glance, followed by the direct expenses of Cost of Goods Sold. Gross sales for April were $45,269, which is the sum of Total Sales ($38,692) and Total Intergroup Discount Sales ($6,577).

In our second cost center, which is called World Service Organization, as of the end of April not all numbers have been reconciled for the ABC/AWC. So these figures are incomplete, which is normal with such a large event. I will be able to report final figures in June. This has been quite a feat to reconcile and I want to thank the Florida Host Committee, specifically Bill D. and Lucia along with Gloria from our staff.

Treasurer's Report and Finance Committee for February 2016

The financial statements that I present monthly for WSO are our Balance Sheet and our Profit and Loss Statement (P&L.)  7th Tradition contributions are shown on the sub-tab under Treasurer's Report.  

The Balance Sheet shows WSO Assets, Liabilities and Equity. With some of the funds available we will be hiring additional people in the near future, which will also mean additional furniture and equipment. So expenses will rise.

Treasurer's Report and Finance Committee Report - March 2016

TREASURER’S REPORT: The 7th Tradition Contributions for March totaled $6,268. The individual contributions that make up that amount, as well as contributions for previous months, can be located on the Donations sub-tab under Treasurer’s Report.

The format of the Profit and Loss Statement (P&L) has been changed to reflect the Gross Sales before any direct expenses are attached, such as Cost of Goods Sold. Gross Sales for March was $70,943. This included a large sale of books and translated BRBs and Workbooks to the Danish Intergroup. On page 3 there is a breakdown of expenses thusfar for this month’s ABC in Florida. That includes an offset of the amount collected for Attendee Registrations.

Treasurer's Report and Finance Committee for January 2016

Treasurer's Report

The January Net Income was $23,892. In December there was a Net Income of (-$1,112) because we ran out of Laundry Lists Workbooks; orders seemed to be held back waiting for them. The January increase helped offset that loss. For the details, see the Profit and Loss Statement.  The Balance Sheet is shown here
