I thought it would be fun to have an area for my readers to ask questions abut using QuickBooks for a church or perhaps to share ideas they have found useful. Sign up to use the comments and I'll answer your questions as best as I can.
By Lisa London If many of your church or congreation members happen to be married, consider using a customer name of Husband and Wife Last Name and a related vendor name of Husband or Wife Last Name. This way either one can cash any reimbursement checks as it is made out to either of them and the donations are acknowledged to both of them. Hat tip to Renea Herberger, CPA for the idea!

By Lisa London I'd certainly hope this would not be an issue for your religious organization, but sometimes members don't balance their checkbooks as well as they should. If you receive an number of bounced checks each month, you may want to consider upgrading to the 2014 QuickBooks version. It simplifies the process and even makes it easy to balance your organizations checkbook as well as rebill the donor.
