You can use the Budget transfer rules form to define budget transfer rules to determine when budget transfers are allowed between financial dimension values. For example, budget transfers in a specific department might be allowed without approval, but transfers across departments might have to be reviewed and approved before the budget balance is adjusted. If a budget register entry is submitted and it violates the budget transfer rules, the transfer can be completed only if it is approved through a Budgeting workflow. For more information, see Set up Budgeting workflows.

  1. Click Budgeting > Setup > Basic budgeting > Budget transfer rules.

  2. Click New and enter an identifier and a description for the budget transfer rule.

  3. Select an account structure.

  4. Click Add to define the financial dimension criteria for a rule member.

    For example, you could define criteria for the Sales department. If a transfer was entered that had budget account entries that did not contain the Sales department financial dimension, the rule would stop the transfer. If workflow was activated for the budget code that is associated with the budget type, the transfer would be submitted for approval.

  5. You can click Add again to add multiple rule members to the same rule. You cannot specify the same financial dimension criteria in more than one rule member for a transfer rule. However, you can have overlaps in financial dimension criteria across budget transfer rules so that the same financial dimension value can belong to multiple budget transfer rules.

  6. To enable the budget transfer rules that you defined, select Use rules for budget transfers in the Budget parameters form.
