If the Prior Year Owners’ Equity is positive, can the Board spend it?

Yes, if the Association has greater than 20% of annual assessments in Prior Year Owners’ Equity, the Association can use the amount over 20% of annual assessments.  However, this account is not a bank account and it is possible that the Prior Year Owners’ Equity is funded by assets other than cash (such as fixed assets).
