Surplus and Deficit Settings

Use the Surplus or Deficit columns to specify whether accounts are used for cash surpluses or deficits. Select the Surplus column to use cash surpluses to repay a revolving debt facility, prepay a term debt facility, or to accumulate in asset accounts. Select the Deficit column to use a debt instrument or funding asset account to fund a cash deficit.


You cannot change the two cash balancing accounts (Excess Marketable Securities and Long-Term Debt: Excess) surplus/deficit settings—both function as sources or uses in the case of a cash surplus or deficit in your model.
