A new feature in our 2020/21 spreadsheet is the ability to add your relief group cover – which is then calculated as part of the wider income and expenses listing on the reporting tools.
The relief group cover requires the weekly group summaries for each group – this is located in a different section of Our World and is through the account viewer.
The relief group section allows for input of up to 90 relief groups throughout the financial year. If you’re covering a group on long term relief, you may prefer to use the monthly PFS document and input the information into your monthly spreadsheet sections, just with your main groups.
Reminder: Relief or cover of other groups may disappear from your account viewer, therefore input the information as soon as possible after the group has ended.
The tables are setup similarly to the monthly PFS data input, however also include the ability to add the group number and the date of group for your reference.
To input information, you’ll need your weekly summary, an example is provided below for the fictional Ambridge group.
The information you need from this section is provided at the bottom of the screen. In this example, the selected group is 123456 Ambridge on 15 April 2020.
The numbers are then input to the spreadsheet as below:
Sundries, as with the monthly summaries, should be only entered if the figure is negative.
The sundries have been left blank, as there was no XPW amount included in the PFS document. This is likely to happen if the relief group is not the first group of the month.
You can continue to add any relief groups to the system, and the overall total will update in the top corner of the screen. This is then transferred through to the annual reports for your account, shown in section A below.
