Bus/Financial - Accounting / Mexican high school transcript
Spanish term or phrase: operaciones especiales
"Módulo II: Registro de operaciones especiales".
This is the name of a course in a high school accounting vocational program.

Other EN>ES KudoZ entries give "off-cycle transactions" but I'm not sure it's that.
As far as I can tell, in Mexico at least "operaciones especiales" encompasses various concepts, as shown by this coursebook "Registra operaciones especiales" (contents on p. 5):
https://www.slideshare.net/soberbio79/fcpt5-s-registraopespe...
The three main areas are: "Cuentas de orden y documentos descontados y endosados", "Mercancías en comisión y mercancías en consignación", "Registro de operaciones en moneda extranjera".
Is there any term in English for this, or will I just have to use "special transactions" (which sounds kind of shady to me!) or something similar?

Explanation:
Could be an option if you think that "special" sounds somehow shady. Otherwise I'd just say special operations/transactions and leave it at that. However, financial translation is not my area of expertise, and no doubt someone will come along soon with a better term.

Example sentence(s):
  • Miscellaneous transactions, such as merchandise check-out and inventory control, electronic funds transfer, automatic teller machine (ATM) operation, lottery transactions, ...
  • Other account activity - Miscellaneous transactions, such as money market account interest and debit card cashback rewards.
