Allocating contributions from suspense (legacy method)

Mclowd provides users with two options in terms of suspense allocations:

  • A legacy interface (available to all users)
  • An upgraded tabular interface which supports faster transaction processing (access to which is restricted to Pro and Premium users only)


  • The suspense allocation function – in either mode – is not suitable for adding a new property or any additions to that property.
  • That should be done only via the Add New Asset or Assets screens
  • However the interface is suitable for allocating property-related rental income and deductions

The balance of this article deals with the legacy interface.

If you have successfully imported the bank data:

  • Choose Suspense Allocation Legacy from the Transactions menu
  • You will then see the Allocate Suspense Entries screen


From the Suspense Account Allocation screen you will see a list of transactions that are available for allocation.

The following example shows how to deal with contributions.

In the relevant row, you need to:

  • Click the Please select button against that contribution transaction
  • You will see a drop-down list of Income, Expenses, and Other categories
  • Select Contribution

  • You will then see the Add Contribution screen.
  • Click Please select next to On Behalf Of if there is more than one member. If there is only one member, then the member will be pre-selected. In this case, the correct member in this example is Zoe Flinstone.
  • The rest of the contribution information is pre-filled except for Contribution type.
  • Click the Please select button against the Contribution type.
  • Click Please select against Contribution type and select the relevant Contribution type from the drop-down menu.


  • If required, you can change the Description

Select ADD CONTRIBUTION once you are satisfied with the information on the screen.
