If you need to use more advanced features that are customized for churches and other nonprofit organizations, then QuickBooks Premier Nonprofit is right for you. It includes the basic features of QuickBooks Online, plus additional church-specific features that make tracking member donations and managing members and contributions easy.
Churches apply standard accounting practices to their bookkeeping so they can track how much money is coming into the church and how much is being spent. Money raised by the church for a specific program must be spent on that program. That's why churches use fund accounting to track and report on money received and money spent. QuickBooks Premier Nonprofit associates all dollars coming in and going out of the church to specific funds. That way, church leaders always know where the dollars came from and how they were spent.
Accurate bookkeeping and accounting is crucial not only for church leaders, but for the IRS as well. Keeping accurate records in accordance with FASB (Financial Accounting Standards Board) is important during tax time. QuickBooks Premier Nonprofit keeps your data organized and in compliance with FASB so that tax time is easier for your church. If you need more than basic bookkeeping and accounting capabilities for your church accounting, then choose QuickBooks Premier Nonprofit.
