2017 Continuing Education Schedule

October Topic: Lawful Gambling Fund Reconciliation and Organization Annual Report

Do the income and expenditure amounts reported on your monthly reports match the transactions shown in your gambling account?  If not, your organization has a profit carryover variance.  This class will help you identify and resolve common causes of profit carryover variances such as inaccurate reporting of merchandise prizes, deposit of receipts from games still in play, and reporting games with negative net receipts.
