You  should  set  the  SGID  bit  on the directory, and make the directory
owned  by  the  right  group  (Finances).  This should make Linux (and not
Samba)  create  the  files under the Finances directory owned by the group
Finances  and  not  your  primary group as it does now. This works without
ACLs, I don't know if it works with ACLs.
