Book Description

**This is not the most current edition of this book. A second edition is available. **

Are you the person who holds the office together at your church while being torn between your responsibilities to the programs, the clergy, and the finances? Don't let your bookkeeping duties be another source of worry. If you use or are considering using QuickBooks at your house of worship, The Accountant Beside You can make this one job hassle-free. 

Many churches and other houses of worship rely on volunteers or an office person to cover their bookkeeping as well as other important administrative jobs. And because bookkeeping for churches can be quite different than for-profit businesses, many of the guides available don't cover what a busy church administrator needs to know in a clear, concise style. 

However, Lisa London, The Accountant Beside You, walks you through QuickBooks for Churches from start to finish. With her friendly easy-to-understand style, and step-by-step instructions and screenshots, Lisa guides new QuickBooks users every step of the way, while her tips for how to make QuickBooks work better for churches provides new procedures for even the experienced bookkeeper. Not only does she step you through how to set up QuickBooks and utilize it more efficiently for your house of worship, but she also covers everything you need to know to implement controls and procedures to ensure that your church's money is always protected.

QuickBooks for Church offers sound accounting procedures for both large and small houses of worship, for bookkeepers with years of experience as well as those just starting out. 

The book covers the Pro, Premier & Nonprofit Windows versions of QuickBooks, including what is new in the 2014 version. 

Let The Accountant Beside You take one more worry off your crowded to-do list.
Also available in Spanish, QuickBooks para Iglesias y Otras Organizaciones Religiosas.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book for any church office 26 Mar. 2014
By Lois Wallenhorst - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have been a church treasurer for more than 8 years and purchased this book to help "grow" our church QB system to automate reports and information required by our diocese and to track some nuanced restricted/unrestricted gifts. I found it helpful as a reference for best practices that go beyond Quickbooks accounting AND as a "how-to" manual with straightforward, step-by-step instructions to set up the chart of accounts, the item list and other specific QB tools. I'd recommend this as an office reference for churches of all sizes and accounting systems.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book! Keep it by the computer because you will want to refer to it often. 27 Nov. 2013
By D. Renea Herberger - Published on
As a CPA and Church Treasurer, I was happy to find this book. I only wish I had found it earlier in my career. It will make my Treasurer work go much smoother. If you are just starting out doing Church accounting or transitioning your Church's books to QuickBooks or, like me, are a veteran of both and are just looking for some tips to make some processes easier, this is the book for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what we needed!!! 26 April 2014
By Dog Mama - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am on the Vestry and chair the budget and finance committee at a small Episcopal church. As a former banker, I've been helping our Treasurer switch our software from Church Works to QuickBooks. QuickBooks is very user friendly, but the nonprofit version has several weaknesses. Restricted accounts, fund accounting, etc just aren't easy to do. This book has been a tremendous help to us, particularly to our Treasurer, a CPA who is really doing the work!

5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely helpful to the non-accountant 21 Feb. 2014
By James Underwood - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
We are transitioning from Quicken to Quickbooks and Lisa's book has been outstanding. Her book has been extremely helpful in assisting me in making the transition from Quicken to Quickbooks. As well as understanding the differences for a church trying to utilize a commerce-focused product (Quickbooks) as a religious organization.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone!
