Yesterday I finished an engagement setting up a high performance accounting system for a local religious congregation with more than 1,000 members. My total fee was $1,650. The work took about 90 days because of required coordination with the bank and other software systems. They now has a reliable online accounting, verified membership list, automated financial reporting, automated bank reconciliation of more than 18 accounts, and new internal controls.
For the first time in year the Board members have confidence that the data they present to the congregation is accurate.
Going forward, they are saving hundreds of dollars per month in accounting and bookkeeping costs as a result of the automation and improved communications.
