Accounting for churches is not the same as accounting for businesses. A church bookkeeper must be aware of the special tax codes that govern the church's unique tax standing. But it is often hard for overworked or volunteer administrators to know every aspect of the tax code that affects their church's ability to accept donations, oversee a benevolence fund, and offer a compensation package for their minister.
