Better financial stewardship starts here.
When it comes to good financial stewardship, churches can often struggle to manage their finances effectively. In many ways, a church’s accounting and bookkeeping duties are different from accounting in for-profit entities and other types of nonprofit organizations. Our team has years of experience helping church management staff organize and manage their finances so it supports their ministries.
Loving and caring for the hopeless and downtrodden is hard when you’re worried about reconciling your bank statements or filing tax forms. That’s why we offer our full-service accounting services to churches just like yours. Using accounting, bookkeeping, and virtual CFO services, we’ll manage your church’s finances and taxes so you can focus on growing a powerful ministry.
Our outsourced accounting team helps your church leaders:
Gain an expert partner with church accounting experience
Many churches hire unqualified people to handle financial responsibilities like accounting and bookkeeping. This can lead to costly bookkeeping mistakes or accounting errors. Our accounting firm has years of experience helping churches organize and manage their finances.
Delegate monthly bookkeeping to professionals
When it comes to finances, many churches use members in their congregation, whether or not they have church accounting experience. This can lead to bookkeeping errors, accounting errors, or tax problems. Our firm will become your church bookkeeping team, working every day to ensure that nothing is out of place in your financial records.
Get church CPA services at a reasonable flat rate
Many nonprofit organizations and churches are overcharged for CPA services like financial statement compilations, reviews, and audits. Our firm acts as your church CPA, providing these services (and much more) at a monthly rate that’s reasonable and affordable for your church administration.
Outsource CFO duties for less than a full-time CFO
Hiring a full-time CFO or controller for your church can require a significant amount of resources. Our outsourced CFO services provide you and your church leadership team with high-quality financial advice while saving you money that you’d normally be spent on full-time payroll and other hiring expenses.
Improve financial management and operations with technology
For years, we’ve helped churches and other nonprofit organizations reduce unnecessary expenses and develop a practical budget that supports their church management system. Using data from your church financial statements, we’ll work with your church leadership to spot and remedy inefficiencies, reduce waste, and improve your church accounting procedures.
Develop internal controls so payments are always authorized
Smaller churches often entrust one of their parishioners to handle all aspects of their church bookkeeping and church accounting. This presents an opportunity for fraudulent cash disbursements and skimming of offering collections each week. We’ll set up a system of internal controls that ensure all payments are properly authorized.
Use QuickBooks as your church accounting software
Our accounting professionals use QuickBooks to integrate with your church membership software and improve your church fund accounting. This lets you easily track how much money your church has allocated for specific ministries like your ministry or missionary efforts.
Sync your church bookkeeping software with other systems
Our firm’s preferred accounting software for churches is QuickBooks. When it comes to the best church accounting software, QuickBooks is ideal and can integrate with the other church software you use to manage church operations. We’ll connect church management software like NeonCRM and DonorPath so everything’s synced.
Oversee your church’s cash flow with visual reports
Another reason we use QuickBooks for churches is the ability to track your cash flow with beautiful, meaningful reports. With QuickBooks, you can securely sync your checking accounts and other bank accounts, allowing you to track bills and income from one dashboard.
Leverage QuickBooks to stay on top of bills and accounts receivable
Most of our firm’s staff are QuickBooks ProAdvisors, meaning we can provide you with QuickBooks consulting services so you maximize this powerful accounting solution. From managing accounts payable for vendors and contractors to tracking accounts receivable, we’ll help you make the most of your church accounting system.
Stay on top of taxes and overcome tax problems
Our church tax services help your leadership navigate complex tax problems successfully, and represent you during difficult communications with the IRS. From handling clergy-specific tax matters to assisting with documentation and filing activities, our church accounting firm helps your church file and stay compliant with all tax updates and reporting requirements.
