A Payment in Advance amount does not have to be transferred to a sibling in order to pay their outstanding line item. This can be done from the family member that holds the Payment in Advance amount.
The need to transfer a Payment in Advance amount to a sibling would invariably be used when a member of the family leaves the school. The accumulated amount can then be transferred to the next eldest child.
