Non-Resident Alien Payments (NRA – Individuals or Corporations)

Directive Statement

Payments to Non-Resident Aliens (NRAs) are made through the payroll system in myUFL when work is performed in the United States.

Resident Aliens and NRAs who only performed work in their home country will be paid through Accounts Payable with an encumbered disbursement.

For all payments to Resident Aliens and NRAs, please follow instructions in the “Requirements for Payments to Foreign Nationals, Nonresident Aliens (NRAs) and Foreign Organizations.”

Definitions

Encumbrance

An encumbrance represents a commitment, which generally results from the issuance of a purchase order for which goods or services being purchased have not yet been received.  Since the goods or services being purchased have not been received, they are not considered a liability and therefore, no legal obligation to pay exists.  Encumbrances are deducted from budget balances.  This is done as a budgetary control and should not be construed as an actual expenditure.
