Primary Uniform Transaction Code Reference Guide



INTRODUCTION

Uniform Transaction Codes (UTCs) introduce a standardized chart of accounts into chapter 7 trustee operations. Among the benefits are: (1) more accurate and consistent accounting and reporting, and (2) more accurate and reliable bankruptcy statistics. A Uniform Transaction Code is seven digits and consists of three parts:

xxxx - xx - x

Primary Code Sub-code Wildcard

This reference guide is intended to assist in selecting the appropriate primary transaction code to use in a given situation. The guide does not include a comprehensive listing of every situation a trustee may encounter. Questions regarding the application of transaction codes should be referred to the regional transaction code coordinator or local office contact at the U.S. Trustee's Office in the region where the trustee is serving.

As an additional aid to the trustee, a Wildcard Reference Guide is provided at Attachment #1. The trustee should consult with the local U.S. Trustee office regarding the Sub-codes, if used.


UTCs MAY BE CHANGED ANYTIME

Transaction codes may be changed without the use of reversing entries. For example, if a receipt initially recorded as a scheduled accounts receivable collection payment (i.e. UTC 1121) is later found to emanate from an unscheduled utility refund payment (i.e. UTC 1229), column 4 of the Form 2 may be changed to reflect the correct transaction code.

SPECIAL SITUATIONS

1. Receipts

With the UTCs come new definitions for scheduled and unscheduled assets. Scheduled assets are those listed by the debtor on the original schedules and statements. Unscheduled assets, or assets not originally scheduled, are those added by the debtor on amended schedules and statements and other assets discovered by the trustee. Separate UTCs are used to distinguish scheduled and unscheduled assets, as further described later in this guide.

2. Expense Refunds and Mis-deposits

In order to ensure accurate totals for receipts and disbursements, refunds of amounts previously paid by a trustee and disbursements made on funds deposited to the estate in error require proper notation on the Form 2. If an estate receives a refund of an amount previously paid by a trustee (e.g. the refund of an over-disbursement to a creditor or a return premium when an insured asset is sold), the deposit should apply the same transaction code used in the initial disbursement and should be reported on the Form 2 as a negative disbursement. In this way, the refund does not erroneously become part of the gross receipts total for purposes of establishing a trustee compensation base. If the trustee discovers that funds were deposited to the estate in error, the transaction code on the deposit transaction should be changed to UTC 1280. The disbursement to correct the error should also use UTC 1280 and should be recorded as a negative deposit/ deposit reversal.

3. NSF Checks

If funds deposited into an estate account are later discovered to have been drawn on insufficient funds (i.e., an NSF check deposited into an estate account), the transaction to void the deposit should apply the same transaction code used in the initial deposit transaction and should be recorded as a negative deposit/deposit reversal.

4. Reversals and Voids

A reversal or void of a disbursement transaction should apply the same transaction code used in the initial disbursement transaction and should be recorded as a negative disbursement. Distributions under $5 that are turned over to the court should be coded according to the type of distribution (i.e. this category of distributions does not fall within the transaction code for court fees, UTC 2700).

5. Bulk Sales

In situations where a group of estate assets are sold (sometimes called bulk sales) and the sales price is not separately stated for each asset, the trustee may use any reasonable allocation method to allocate the sale proceeds among the various assets. For example, the trustee may make a pro-rata distribution based on the initial estimated fair market value of the assets sold. See also the discussion under #6, below.

6. Transactions That Need Multiple UTCs

Some receipts and disbursements may need to be assigned more than one UTC. So-called split transactions can include: trustee fees and expenses; property taxes; payments to auctioneers; payments to attorneys and other professionals; payroll taxes; sales of real estate; bulk sales; and tax refunds. To simplify the assignment of UTCs, it is sometimes not necessary to assign multiple codes. For example,

Trustee fees and expenses: This type of payment must always be divided between fees (2100) and expenses (2200). Although the expenses may include individual items for which there are separate UTCs (for example, bond premium), it is not necessary to further breakdown trustee expenses unless the individual item exceeds $1,000.

Property taxes: This type of payment frequently includes pre-petition and post-petition amounts. The applicable UTCs are 2820 and 4700, respectively. However, it is not necessary to divide the payment between these UTCs, unless the total amount paid exceeds $1,000.

Auctioneer fees and expenses: This type of payment must always be divided between auctioneer fees (3610 or 3630) and auctioneer expenses (3620 and 3640). Occasionally, auctioneer expenses will include some items for which there are separate UTCs. For example, the auctioneer may pay for securing (2420) and storing (2410) the property prior to auction. If the total amount paid for auctioneer expenses is under $1,000, it is not necessary to divide the payment for auctioneer expenses among these various UTCs.

Payroll taxes: The coding for payroll taxes depends upon the status of the case. During the period of operation pursuant to court order, the employer and employee portion of payroll taxes fall within UTC 2690. Chapter 11 payroll taxes paid during the chapter 7 fall within UTC 6950. Payroll taxes on 507(a)(3) wages are divided between UTC 5300 (employee portion) and UTC 5800(employer portion). See also Item #7 below.

Real estate sales: Separate UTCs are used for gross receipts and each individual constructive disbursement (however, see the discussion above regarding property taxes). No UTC is assigned to the net amount deposited.

Bulk sales: Separate UTCs are used for each distinct type of asset. For example, the sale of real estate, receivables, and inventory for a lump-sum would be divided among the UTCs for these assets. If scheduled, the UTCs are 1110, 1121, and 1129, respectively. If not originally scheduled, the UTCs are 1210, 1221, and 1229, respectively. See #5 above regarding the allocation of the sale price among assets sold as a group.

Tax refunds: When a portion of a tax refund belongs to the debtor, there are two options for assigning UTCs to the deposit. The entire amount may be assigned to UTC 1124 (Tax Refunds), if scheduled, or UTC 1224 (Tax Refunds), if not scheduled. Alternatively, the deposit may be split between UTC 1124 and 1180 (Non-Estate Receipts), if scheduled, or 1224 and 1280 (Non-Estate Receipts), if not scheduled.

In addition, the trustee's computer vendor has specific instructions for recording these transactions using the UTCs.

7. Pre-petition Wage Claims

Following are the UTCs that apply to pre-petition wage claims and an example illustrating their usage:

5300-000 Pre-petition wage claims (gross amount, including employee payroll taxes) up to $4,650 (effective 4/1/2001), for wages earned within 90 days of the earlier of the date of filing or the cessation of business. 507(a)(3).

5800-000 Employer payroll taxes on pre-petition wage claims up to $4,650 (effective 4/1/2001), for wages earned within 90 days of the earlier of the date of filing or the cessation of business. 507(a)(8).

7100-000 Pre-petition wages in excess of $4,650 or wages that were earned more than 90 days before the earlier of the date of filing or the cessation of business. Include the employee and employer payroll taxes on these wages. 726(a)(2).

7990-000 Interest on the wage claims (surplus cases).  726(a)(5). Note: do not withhold or pay payroll taxes on the interest. Also, as a general rule, interest is not paid on the payroll taxes remitted to the taxing authority.

Example: $5,000 wage claim in surplus case with $100 interest. Employee FICA and Medicare at 7.65% equals $382.50 and federal income tax withholding at 20% equals $1,000. Assume no state income tax withholding and no federal or state unemployment taxes.

Payment to employee:

Gross pay $5,000.00 (W-2 AMOUNT)

FICA - 382.50

F W/H - 1,000.00

$3,617.50

Interest 100.00 (UNDER $600; NO 1099 IS REQUIRED)

Amt. to employee $3,717.50

Payment to IRS: $1,765.00 (Employee and employer taxes)



Applicable UTCs-Check to Employee:

(Adapt coding if priority and unsecured portions are divided between two checks to the employee)



Pre-petition wages up to $4,650 $ 4,650.00 5300-000

Pre-petition wages over $4,650 350.00 7100-000*

FICA and Fed W/H on $4,650 (1,285.72) 5300-000

$355.72 + $930.00

FICA and Fed W/H on $350 (96.78) 7100-000*

$26.78 + $70.00

Interest 100.00 7990-000

Net $ 3,717.50



Applicable UTCs-Check to IRS



Employer taxes on $4,650-FICA @ 7.65% $ 355.73 5800-000

Employee taxes on $4,650- F W/H & FICA 1,285.72 5300-000

Employee/employer taxes on $350 123.55 7100-000*

$70 W/H + $53.55 FICA (both-15.3%)

Total $1,765.00



* 7200-000 if tardily filed claim




Recap: Total $1,765.00 + $3,717.50 = $5,000.00 (wage claim) + $100 (interest) + $382.50 (new claim created by payment of wages, i.e., employer share of FICA)

Note that the deductions from the employee's check net with the IRS check, resulting in the correct amounts for UTC 5300, UTC 5800 and UTC 7100.

The UTCs for state income taxes, FUTA, and SUTA are analogous to the UTCs for the federal income taxes and employer FICA. Prorate the taxes between UTC 5300, UTC 5800 and UTC 7100, as applicable.


 

8. Distributions Under $5

Distributions under $5 that are turned over to the court should be coded according to the type of distribution. For example, a check to the court for payments under $5 on general unsecured claims would have UTC 7100. Do not use the UTC for court costs.

9. Unclaimed Funds

Unclaimed funds turned over to the court should have the same UTC as the one used for the original payment that went unclaimed. For example, a former employee of the debtor does not cash a priority wage check that was coded with UTC 5300. The trustee's check to turn over the funds to the court would also have UTC 5300.



RECEIPTS (1):


1. UTC 1110 - Liquidation of Real Property (Scheduled)

2. UTC 1210 - Liquidation of Real Property (Not Originally Scheduled)

Definition: UTCs 1110 and 1210 apply when a trustee receives funds from the sale of real property (i.e. land, buildings, subsurface rights, plant life, and fixtures). UTCs 1110 and 1210 would include a situation where the debtor purchases his/her equity in real property.

Example: The trustee sells a vacation home for a gross purchase price of $250,000.00. As a result of closing costs, the net amount received by the estate totals $230,000.00. Column 4 of the Form 2 should reflect $250,000.00 within UTC 1110 or 1210, depending on whether the vacation home was reported on the Schedule A that was initially filed at the Court. Each closing cost item should be reported on the Form 2 under the appropriate code. The $230,000.00 deposit that is reported in column 5 of the Form 2 should not have a UTC assigned to it.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 3. UTC 1121 - Notes and Accounts Receivable (Scheduled)

4. UTC 1221 - Notes and Accounts Receivable (Not Originally Scheduled)

Definition: UTCs 1121 and 1221 apply when a trustee receives funds from the administration of notes and accounts receivables.

Example: The trustee collects $2,500.00 in accounts receivables. The Form 2 should reflect $2,500.00 in receipts within UTC 1121 or 1221, depending on whether the accounts receivable were reported on the Schedule B that was initially filed at the Court.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


5. UTC 1122 - Rents (Scheduled)

6. UTC 1222 - Rents (Not Originally Scheduled)

Definition: UTCs 1122 and 1222 apply when a trustee receives rental income. Post-petition rental income should be classified as "scheduled" if the income relates to real or personal property that was reported on the Schedule A or B that was initially filed at the Court. Post-petition rental income should be classified as "not originally scheduled" if the income is derived from real or personal property that was not reported on the Schedule A or B that was initially filed at the Court.

UTCs 1122 and 1222 apply to non-operating cases only. Separate transaction codes apply when a trustee operates a business pursuant to a Court order under 11 U.S.C. 721. See page 11.

Example: In a non-operating case the trustee collects $5,000.00 in rental income from an apartment building of the estate. The Form 2 should reflect $5,000.00 in receipts within UTC 1122 or 1222, depending on whether the apartment building was listed in the Schedule A that was initially filed at the Court. If the case is an operating case under 721, the $5,000.00 would be captured under UTC 1130 or 1230, depending on whether the apartment building was listed in the Schedule A that was initially filed at the Court. For further clarification of UTCs 1130 and 1230 (Revenue from Operating Chapter 7), please see page 11.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

7. UTC 1123 - Royalties and Dividends (Scheduled)

8. UTC 1223 - Royalties and Dividends (Not Originally Scheduled)

Definition: UTCs 1123 and 1223 apply when a trustee receives royalty or dividend income on estate property. Post-petition royalty and dividend income should be classified as "scheduled" if the income relates to personal property that was reported on the Schedule B that was initially filed at the Court. Post-petition royalty and dividend income should be classified as "not originally scheduled" if the income is derived from personal property that was not reported on the Schedule B that was initially filed at the Court.

Example: The trustee collects $150.00 in dividend income from shares of stock held by the estate. The Form 2 should reflect $150.00 in receipts within UTC 1123 or 1223, depending on whether the shares of stock were listed on the Schedule B that was initially filed at the Court.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


9. UTC 1124 - Tax Refunds (Scheduled)

10. UTC 1224 - Tax Refunds (Not Originally Scheduled)

Definition: UTCs 1124 and 1224 apply when a trustee receives a tax refund.

In a situation where a portion of the refund represents property of the debtor (i.e. not property of the estate), the trustee has two options:

Example: The trustee collects $300.00 in income tax refunds, 90% of which is determined to be property of the estate. The Form 2 reflects $270.00 in receipts within UTC 1124 or 1224, and $30 within UTC 1180 or 1280, depending on whether the tax refund was reported on the Schedule B that was initially filed at the Court.

Note that the check transmitting the debtor's portion of the tax refund is coded with UTC 8500.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

11. UTC 1129 - Liquidation of Other Schedule B Personal Property (Scheduled; not included in UTC 1121, 1122, 1123, or 1124)

UTC 1229 - Liquidation of Other Personal Property (Not Originally Scheduled; not included in UTC 1221, 1222, 1223, or 1224)

Definition: UTCs 1129 and 1229 apply when a trustee receives funds from the administration of any Schedule B asset that is not captured within another transaction code.

UTCs 1129 and 1229 would include a situation where the debtor purchases his/her equity in personal property.

The receipt of sales tax proceeds on the applicable asset should be included in the gross sales price within UTC 1129 or 1229, depending on whether the asset sold was reported on the Schedule B that was initially filed at the Court.

The receipt of utility refunds should be included within UTC 1129 or 1229, depending on whether the refund was reported in the Schedule B that was initially filed with the Court.

The receipt of miscellaneous unscheduled refunds should be included within 1229.

Example: The trustee collects $2,400.00 from the auction of an automobile. The Form 2 should reflect $2,400.00 in receipts within UTC 1129 or 1229, depending on whether the automobile was reported on the Schedule B that was initially filed with the Court.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


13. UTC 1130 - Revenue from Operating Chapter 7 (Scheduled)

14. UTC 1230 - Revenue from Operating Chapter 7 (Not Originally Scheduled)

Definition: UTCs 1130 and 1230 apply when, pursuant to a Court order under 11 U.S.C. 721, a trustee receives funds during the course of operating a chapter 7 business.

Example: During the operation of a chapter 7 business involving a 40 unit apartment building, the trustee receives $30,000.00 in gross revenue. The Form 2 should reflect $30,000.00 in receipts within UTC 1130 or 1230, depending on whether the apartment building was reported on the Schedule A that was initially filed at the Court.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

15. UTC 1141 - Preference/Fraudulent Transfer Litigation (Scheduled)

16. UTC 1241 - Preference/Fraudulent Transfer Litigation (Not Originally Scheduled)

Definition: UTCs 1141 and 1241 apply when a trustee receives funds on a preference or fraudulent transfer recovery. This includes preferences that are received without the need to resort to litigation.

Example: The trustee receives a $10,000.00 preference recovery. The Form 2 should reflect $10,000.00 in receipts within UTC 1141 or 1241, depending on whether the preference was reported on the Schedule B or Statement of Financial Affairs that was initially filed at the Court.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------17. UTC 1142 - Personal Injury Litigation (Scheduled)

18. UTC 1242 - Personal Injury Litigation (Not Originally Scheduled)

Definition: UTCs 1142 and 1242 apply when a trustee receives funds from personal injury litigation.

Example: The trustee receives $50,000.00 from a personal injury litigation action. The Form 2 should reflect $50,000.00 in receipts within UTC 1142 or 1242, depending on whether the personal injury claim was reported on the Schedule B or Statement of Financial Affairs that was initially filed at the Court.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



19. UTC 1149 - Other Litigation/Settlements (Scheduled; not included in UTC 1141 or 1142)

20. UTC 1249 - Other Litigation/Settlements (Not Originally Scheduled; not included in UTC 1241 or 1242)

Definition: UTCs 1149 and 1249 apply when a trustee receives funds from a litigation or settlement action that does not involve a personal injury or preference/fraudulent transfer claim.

Example: The trustee receives $5,000.00 from a compromise to settle the trustee's objection to the debtor's exemption in jewelry. The Form 2 should reflect $5,000.00 in receipts within UTC 1249.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

21. UTC 1180 - Non-Estate Receipts (Scheduled)

22. UTC 1280 - Non-Estate Receipts (Not Originally Scheduled)

Definition: UTCs 1180 and 1280 apply when a trustee receives non-estate funds. Receipts captured within UTCs 1180 and 1280 can include, but not be limited to: (1) an earnest money deposit; (2) the portion of a tax refund that belongs to the debtor (see the discussion of UTC 1124/1224, above); (3) mis-deposits (use UTC 1280 for the deposit and the check to transfer the mis-deposited funds to the correct account); and (4) funds received by the estate in error (use UTC 1280 for the deposit and the check to return the funds to the creditor or other payer who sent them in error).

Example: The trustee receives a $5,000.00 earnest money deposit on the sale of a painting. At the time that the deposit is received, the trustee does not know whether the sale will be consummated with the individual who has remitted the $5,000.00 deposit. The Form 2 should reflect $5,000.00 in receipts within UTC 1180 or 1280, depending on whether the painting was reported on the Schedule B that was initially filed with the Court. The sale eventually closes with this individual. One way to make the Form 2 entry is apply the deposit by recording the sale as a split transaction that includes a negative entry for $5,000 with UTC 1180/1280. Thereby, the earnest money and the application of the earnest money to the sale will net to zero in 1180/1280. Another way to apply the earnest money to the sale is to change its UTC to UTC 1129/1229 (as applicable) and to record the balance of the sale proceeds as a simple deposit using UTC 1129/1229.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

23. UTC 1270 - Interest Income (Not Originally Scheduled)

Definition: UTC 1270 applies when a trustee receives interest income that has accrued on estate bank accounts.

Definition: UTC 1290 applies when a trustee receives funds from the administration of an asset that: (1) is not reported on the initial schedules filed with the Court and (2) relates to a category not covered within any other transaction code. Examples include funds turned over to a successor trustee in a chapter 7 case and funds turned over upon conversion of the case to chapter 7.

Example: Upon conversion of a case from chapter 11 to chapter 7, the trustee receives $500.00 in turnover of funds. The Form 2 should reflect $500.00 in receipts within UTC 1290.

With the exception of disbursements to the debtor for exemptions or surplus funds, each of which has a separate transaction code, miscellaneous disbursements to the debtor also fall under UTC 8500. For example, in a situation where a portion of a tax refund received by the estate represents property of the debtor (i.e. non-estate property), payment to the debtor for his or her portion of the refund should be reported within UTC 8500.

In the sale of estate property in which a third party holds an interest, amounts paid to the third party, for example, a non-debtor spouse or other non-debtor co-owner [under 11 U.S.C. 363(j)], should be reported within UTC 8500.

Refunds of earnest monies, bids, escrow and other deposits should be reported within UTC 8500.

Examples: The trustee receives $30,000.00 from the sale of a boat. After deducting the sale expenses, $5,000.00 of the net proceeds represent a non-debtor co-owner's interest in the boat. The Form 2 should reflect a $5,000.00 disbursement within UTC 8500.

The trustee receives a $1,200 scheduled tax refund that includes a portion belonging to the debtor. The estate's portion of the receipt, $800, is reported within UTC 1124. The debtor's portion of the receipt, $400, is reported within UTC 1180. The payment to the debtor, $400, is reported with UTC 8500.

The investment banker files a fee application and receives Court approval allowing compensation of $2,500.00 in fees and an expense reimbursement of $155.00. In accordance with 11 U.S.C. 348(d), chapter 11 administrative expenses are subordinated to chapter 7 administrative expenses. $2,000.00 of estate funds remain after payment of the allowed chapter 7 administrative claims. Since the chapter 11 investment banker's fees and expenses represent the only allowed chapter 11 administrative expenses, the $2,000.00 in estate funds is distributed to the investment banker. $116.76 [(2,000/2,655) * 155] is allocated to UTC 6710.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

89. UTC 6810 - Prior Chapter Income Taxes - Internal Revenue Service

Definition: UTC 6810 applies when a trustee disburses estate funds to cover income taxes that accrued during a prior chapter (i.e. after the order for relief date for the prior chapter, but prior to conversion to chapter 7).

Example: During the pendency of the chapter 11 case, the trustee generated taxable income for the estate through the sale of real estate and a compromise settlement on an avoidance action. Soon after the funds came into the estate account, the case converted. The chapter 7 trustee employed an accountant to prepare tax returns. Based on income generated during the chapter 11 proceeding, the federal income tax liability totaled $12,000.00 and the state income tax liability totaled $3,500.00. The Form 2 should reflect a $12,000.00 disbursement within UTC 6810.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

90. UTC 6820 - Prior Chapter Other State or Local Taxes

Definition: UTC 6820 applies when a trustee disburses estate funds to cover state or local taxes that accrued during a prior chapter (i.e. after the order for relief date for the prior chapter, but prior to conversion to chapter 7).

Example: During the pendency of the chapter 11 case, the trustee generated taxable income for the estate through the sale of real estate and a compromise settlement on an avoidance action. Soon after the funds came into the estate account, the case converted. The chapter 7 trustee employed an accountant to prepare tax returns. Based on income generated during the chapter 11 proceeding, the federal income tax liability totaled $12,000.00 and the state income tax liability totaled $3,500.00. The Form 2 should reflect a $3,500.00 disbursement within UTC 6820.


91. UTC 6910 - Prior Chapter Trade Debt

Definition: UTC 6910 applies when a trustee disburses estate funds to cover trade expenses that accrued during a prior chapter (i.e. after the order for relief date for the prior chapter, but prior to conversion to chapter 7).

Example: During the pendency of a chapter 11 case, the debtor-in-possession of a coat manufacturer sought post-petition services from a cloth supplier. The case converted to chapter 7. The cloth supplier subsequently filed a motion for allowance of 11 U.S.C. 503(b)(1)(A) administrative expense priority for the $18,000.00 of debt incurred post-petition. The Court approved the supplier's motion. In accordance with 11 U.S.C. 348(d), chapter 11 administrative expenses are subordinated to chapter 7 administrative expenses. $8,000.00 of estate funds remain after payment of the allowed chapter 7 administrative claims. Since the supplier's claim represents the only allowed chapter 11 administrative expense, the $8,000.00 in estate funds is distributed to the supplier. The Form 2 should reflect an $8,000 disbursement within UTC 6910.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

92. UTC 6920 - Prior Chapter Administrative Rent

Definition: UTC 6920 applies when a trustee disburses estate funds to cover administrative rental expenses that were incurred during a prior chapter (i.e. after the order for relief date for the prior chapter, but prior to conversion to chapter 7).

Example: During the pendency of the chapter 11 proceeding, the debtor entered into a new commercial property lease. The case converts to chapter 7 and the Court allows a $6,000.00 future rent claim for the remainder of the lease as a 503(b)(1)(A) administrative expense. The Form 2 should reflect a $6,000.00 disbursement within UTC 6920.


93. UTC 6950 - Prior Chapter Other Operating Expenses

Definition: UTC 6950 applies when a trustee distributes estate funds to cover expenses relating to operations during a prior chapter.

Prior chapter operating expenses include, but are not limited to the following payments: (1) utility expenses; (2) management company fees and expenses; (3) administrative wages, including tax and other withholdings and related employer payroll taxes; (4) casualty insurance; (5) locksmiths; (6) security personnel; and (7) repairs.

A transaction using UTC 6950 must include in Column 4 of the Form 2 a complete description of the expenses incurred.

Example: The trustee pays $800.00 in payroll taxes on chapter 11 wage claims. The Form 2 should reflect an $800.00 payment within UTC 6950.


94. UTC 6990 - Other Prior Chapter Administrative Expenses

Definition: UTC 6990 applies when a trustee disburses estate funds to cover expenses incurred during a prior chapter (i.e. after the order for relief date for the prior chapter, but prior to conversion to chapter 7) that are not captured within any other transaction code.

Payments from claims under 11 U.S.C. 364(c), 503(b)(3), and 507(b) that relate to expenses incurred during the pendency of the prior chapter should be reported within UTC 6990.

UTC 6990 specifically excludes: (1) fees and expenses paid to professionals pursuant to 11 U.S.C. 330(a); (2) operating expenses; (3) taxes; (4) court costs; and (5) United States Trustee quarterly fees.

A transaction using UTC 6990 must include in Column 4 of the Form 2 a complete description of the expenses incurred.

Example: During the pendency of the chapter 11, the debtor-in-possession received Court approval to obtain superpriority unsecured credit under 11 U.S.C. 364(c). The case converts to chapter 7. The unsecured creditor files a proof of claim in the amount of $10,000.00. The Form 2 should reflect a $10,000.00 disbursement within UTC 6990.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

PRIORITY CLAIMS:


95. UTC 5200 - 502(f) Involuntary Gap Claims

Definition: UTC 5200 applies when a trustee disburses estate funds to cover a claim that arose in the ordinary course after an involuntary petition has been filed, but before the earlier of the appointment of a trustee and the order for relief.

11 U.S.C. 502(f) outlines the statutory provisions for this transaction code.

Example: An involuntary chapter 7 petition was filed against a shoe store. Subsequent to the commencement of the case, but prior to the order for relief date or the appointment of a trustee, the debtor purchased shoes on credit from one of its suppliers. At the time that the order for relief was entered, a $3,000.00 balance remained. The entire balance related to the purchase transaction that had taken place during the gap period. The supplier filed a proof of claim. The Form 2 should reflect a $3,000.00 disbursement within UTC 5200.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

96. UTC 5300 - 507(a)(3) Wages

Definition: UTC 5300 applies when a trustee disburses estate funds to a former employee of the chapter 7 debtor in payment of wages, salary, or sales commission earned within 90 days before the earlier of the petition filing date or the date that the debtor's business operations ceased.

UTC 5300 covers the net amount remitted to the employee as well as the employee portion of payroll taxes. A separate transaction code entitled, "Claims of Governmental Units" (UTC 5800), covers the employer portion of payroll taxes.

11 U.S.C. 507(a)(3) outlines the statutory provisions for this transaction code.

Example: A restaurant files a voluntary chapter 7 petition and ceases operations on the petition filing date. Subsequent to the filing, one employee files a proof of claim seeking $1,500.00 for wages earned within the 90 days prior to the filing. The Form 2 should reflect the following disbursements within UTC 5300: (1) $93.00 (the employee portion of social security taxes withheld); (2) $21.75 (the employee portion of Medicare tax withheld); (3) $241.55 (federal income tax withholding); and (4) $1,143.70 (the net amount remitted to the employee).

 


97. UTC 5400 - 507(a)(4) Contributions to Employee Benefit Plans

11 U.S.C. 507(a)(4) outlines the statutory provisions for this transaction code.

Example: A restaurant files a voluntary chapter 7 petition and ceases operations on the petition filing date. Subsequent to the filing, an insurer files a proof of claim for $3,000.00 in premium payments that came due within the 180 days prior to the filing.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

99. UTC 5600 - 507(a)(6) Consumer Deposits

Definition: UTC 5600 applies when a trustee disburses estate funds to cover pre-petition deposits made by an individual to the debtor in connection with the consumer purchase, lease, or rental of property that was not delivered, or the purchase of services that were not provided.

11 U.S.C. 507(a)(6) outlines the statutory provisions for this transaction code.

Example: Prior to the commencement of its chapter 7 case, the debtor operated a furniture store and accepted a $300.00 deposit on a couch from an individual for use in the individual's home. Upon filing a chapter 7 petition, the debtor ceased operating. At the time of filing, the debtor had not delivered the couch to the consumer. The consumer files a $300.00 proof of claim. The Form 2 should reflect a $300.00 disbursement within UTC 5600.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

103. UTC 7100 - 726(a)(2) General Unsecured Claims

Definition: UTC 7100 applies when a trustee disburses estate funds in payment of allowed general unsecured claims that are either: (1) timely filed, or (2) tardily filed where the creditor proves that he did not have notice or actual knowledge of the case in time for timely filing a proof of claim.

Example: Prior to filing a chapter 7 petition, a debtor purchased flowers on credit from a florist. The florist timely files a proof of claim in the amount of $125.00. The claim is allowed. As the distribution percentage to general unsecured creditors totals 4.75%, the Form 2 should reflect a $5.94 payment to the florist that is reported within UTC 7100.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

104. UTC 7200 - 726(a)(3) Tardily Filed General Unsecured Claims

Definition: UTC 7200 applies when a trustee disburses estate funds in payment to an unsecured claimant where the claimant filed a proof of claim after the proof of claim bar date and did not prove that the delay was due to lack of notice or knowledge of the case in time for timely filing a proof of claim.

Example: A credit card company, that was listed on Schedule F, filed a $1,200.00 proof of claim twelve days after the proof of claim bar date had expired. There were no grounds to elevate the claim to timely filed. After paying the timely filed allowed claims, $250.00 of estate funds remained.

Example: The Internal Revenue Service filed a proof of claim, asserting $6,000.00 in income taxes owed along with a $12,000.00 penalty for failure to timely remit taxes owed. After payment of administrative, priority, and general unsecured claims in full, $20,000.00 of estate funds remain. The Form 2 should report a $12,000.00 payment to the IRS within UTC 7300.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

106. UTC 7400 - Subordinated General Unsecured

Definition: UTC 7400 applies when a trustee disburses estate funds in payment of claims that are equitably or consensually subordinated to other general unsecured creditors' claims.

11 U.S.C. 510 outlines the statutory provisions for subordination of claims.

Example: The Court determines that one creditor engaged in misconduct that resulted in injuries to the other estate creditors. The Court quantified the harm imposed at $25,000.00, the total amount of the creditor at issue's claim. The Court directed the trustee to subordinate this claim to the claims of the other allowed general unsecured creditors. Upon payment to the other allowed general unsecured creditors, $5,000.00 of estate funds remain. The Form 2 should report a $5,000.00 payment to the subordinated creditor within UTC 7400.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

107. UTC 7990 - 726(a)(5) Surplus Interest on Priority and General Unsecured Claims

Definition: UTC 7990 applies when a trustee disburses estate funds to a creditor in payment of interest on the creditor's priority or general unsecured claim.

Interest is computed at the legal rate on all claims paid under 11 U.S.C. 726(a)(1), 726(a)(2), 726(a)(3), and 726(a)(4).

Example: After payment of all allowed proofs of claim, $600.00 in estate funds remain. Assuming that the calculation of interest on allowed claims totals at least $600.00, the Form 2 should reflect individual payments totaling $600.00, each of which is reported within UTC 7990.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

OTHER:


108. UTC 9999 - Account Transfers

Definition: UTC 9999 applies when a trustee makes intra-estate transfers (i.e. transfers between accounts of a single estate).

UTC 9999 applies to receipt and disbursement transactions.

Example: The trustee transfers $5,000.00 of estate funds from the money market account to the checking account. The Form 2 for the money market account should report a $5,000.00 disbursement within UTC 9999. The Form 2 for the checking account should report a $5,000.00 receipt within UTC 9999.

Attachment #1 - Wildcard Reference Guide

The Wildcard is the seventh digit of the Uniform Transaction Code. This guide covers the first three wildcards. (Two additional wildcards, 4 and 5, for voids and stop payments respectively, may be encountered by the trustee. When used, either the UST regional staff and/or the trustee's vendor can provide additional information about these two wildcards.)

Wildcard

"0" This is the default wildcard. It applies to all receipts and all disbursements unless otherwise noted.

"1" Payments representing funds turned over to the court are designated with this wildcard. The first six digits of the payments are the same as the original check. Examples:

Creditors and Professionals: A $500 payment on a timely filed unsecured claim is not cashed by the claimant. The trustee's attempts to locate the claimant are unsuccessful and the trustee turns over the funds to the court. The UTC for the original payment was 7100-000. The UTC for the payment to the court is 7100-001.

Debtor Exemptions and Surplus Funds: A debtor leaves the area with no forwarding address and fails to cash a surplus funds check in the amount of $50. The trustee turns over the funds to the court. The UTC for the original payment was 8200-002. The UTC for the payment to the court is 8200-001.

"2" Transactions that are non-compensable according to bankruptcy law, local rule, or transaction type are designated with this wildcard. Examples:

Receipts

Mis-deposits (funds belonging to another estate) UTC 1280-002

Earnest monies refunded to unsuccessful bidders UTC 1180-002 or UTC 1280-002, depending on whether the related asset was listed on the initial schedules filed with the Court.

Funds paid to the estate in error, ex. IRS refund UTC 1280-002

Tax refunds where portion belongs to debtor UTC 1180-00x or UTC 1280-00x, depending on whether the related asset was listed on the initial schedules filed with the Court; x = 0 or 2.

NOTE: Do not use wildcard "2" to designate the exempt portion of sale proceeds.

Wildcard Reference Guide

Wildcard, continued

"2" Transactions that are non-compensable according to bankruptcy law, local rule, or transaction type are designated with this wildcard.

Disbursements - Examples where "2" is always used



Exemptions 8100-002 (unless unclaimed)*

Excess (surplus) funds 8200-002 (unless unclaimed)*

Earnest monies returned to bidder 8500-002 (unless unclaimed)*

Mis-deposits 1280-002

Funds paid to the estate in error 1280-002 (unless unclaimed)*

* If any of these payments go unclaimed, the wildcard is changed to 1 for the check turning the funds over to the court. See above.

Disbursements - Examples where "2" depends upon local rules

Debtor's share of tax refund - 8500-00x (where x - 0, 1, or 2)

Non-debtor co-owner's share of property sale proceeds - 8500-00x (where x - 0, 1, or 2)
