New Format for Account Statements Using September 2010 Data
Beginning with the October 2011 Account Statements, the statements will be improved by removing the old FMS 224 receipts/disbursements format and replacing it with the Government Wide Accounting (GWA) increases/decreases and Treasury Account Symbol (TAS) / Business Event Type Code (BETC) format. The new statements will include totals by transaction type that correspond to a FMS set of BETC codes.
The totals reported to the agency's earnings TAS will be further detailed into subtotals for the amounts due to inflation (deflation), interest, discounts, and premiums. Customers that invest in zero coupon bonds and certain Department of Defense funds will notice additional changes that facilitate modified accrual basis reporting. Above are samples of how the new Statements will appear using data from September 2010.
