What is it?

General Accounts Receivable (GAR) is a specific type of accounts receivable, where money is owed from an external business or organization for goods provided or services performed by Carleton University.

GAR, a unit of Financial Services within the Business Office, is responsible for the timely processing of requisitions for invoices for services performed by the University community.

Why is it important?

Invoices created for outside parties should be processed through GAR to ensure the University’s responsibility to collect and report taxes is appropriately considered.

When an invoice is created in GAR the revenue is immediately posted to the department’s account.

Where do I find more information?

To request an invoice be prepared, please complete the General Accounts Receivable.  The invoice requisition form is available at Financial Services Business Operations – Accounts Receivable.
