Now it’s easier than ever to quickly enter contributions for Taxable and Cash Accounts. With the new Contribution tab, we’ve eliminated the need to model contributions for these accounts via Transfer Flow.
How do I add Taxable and Cash Account Contributions?
To enter contributions from Basic Facts, simply go to the Savings & Contributions section, click the Add button, and select a contribution.
This will open a drop-down menu, which allows you to enter the amount of the contribution and when it will begin and end.
Or, if you’re working in the Advanced Fact Finder, follow the steps below:
1. Navigate to your client’s Advanced Facts, and open the Investments menu to select the taxable or cash account.
2. Once you’ve selected the account, you will see your new Contributions tab next to Basic. Click on the Contributions tab, and you will have the option to enter contributions, or even create schedules to adjust contribution amounts over time.
These changes will be visible in your Fact Finder, the Client Organizer, Advanced Planning Techniques, and all Reports that display contributions.
How will this update affect my existing Transfer Flow contributions?
Where applicable, we automatically converted existing Transfer Flows to Taxable or Cash Account contributions. However, many transfer flows may not have met the strict criteria required to be converted automatically. While these Transfer Flows will continue to function, we recommend updating them to contributions.
Note, that we aren’t changing the way eMoney handles Transfer Flows.
