Best Financial Tools for Church Planters: Online Bookkeeping

In my continuing series on Best Financial Tools for Church Planters I am focusing on online book keeping. There are a lot of different options for church's to track finances and I am far from an expert in that regard. I do, however, have experience at managing finances for a church plant and speaking to other church planters who have had similar responsibilities.

The most popular option for bookkeeping has been Quickbooks Online. Below are some reasons this is a good choice for a church planter.
  • You can access your books from any computer at any time. 
  • There is more accountability because numerous users can access the books
  • You will no longer need to run files back and forth to your bookkeeper or accountant
  • You can take advantage of all the powerful features Quickbooks offers like syncing with your bank, managing payroll, printing checks, etc...
  • You can synchronize your account categories with expense tracking programs like Expensify, which was featured in the last post
Below is a recent video review that reviews Quickbooks Online in more detail.
