In a perfect world it is recorded, not as "credit", but rather as "UPE" or "receivable" or comparable . In the event that blunders in past years recording, self remedial alternatives are accessible to accurately records adjusts so no Section 2 advance will be viewed as being made. Note particular qualifying criteria here
