We have customised some great reports that some churches love using this new Accounts Transactions report. One of these is what we call the Missions Donations Payable report.  The purpose of this report is to display the amount of donations received and paid out for mission workers/organisations. 

Another name could be Donations Received for Onpayment 

The report can be produced in summary as below:

The Amount in the Gross Column at the bottom of each Tracking Group represents the donations received but not yet paid the Mission
