5.0 out of 5 stars A great book for any church office, March 26, 2014
By Lois Wallenhorst - 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 for church and non-profit application of QuickBooks,July 7, 2014
By Douglas J. Haas "Always Something Different"(PA USA) Verified Purchase
QuickBooks was not made for churches, it was made for businesses. So many functions have business names that are opposite of how a church would look at it. Such as;church members are customers, member donations are called sales receipts, etc. So it is great that this book was written specifically for the church/non-profit application. I don't think I would have been able to work it out in my head without the book. Another book I bought just didn't make any sense. And it is well written with lots of screen pictures.
