Churches are required to follow the generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) for various documents and reports and comply with the requirements set in place by the IRS.
The IRS may begin a church tax inquiry only if an appropriate high-level Treasury official reasonably believes, based on a written statement of the facts and circumstances, that the organization: (a) may not qualify for the exemption; or (b) may not be paying tax on unrelated business or other taxable activity. This reasonable belief must be based on facts and circumstances recorded in writing.
Bookkeeping for churches is much like every other business that receives money, pays employees, manages projects/inventory, pays bills, and owns a bank account. Have a daily, weekly, and monthly checklist of all financial transactions that affect your organization's financial health and accountability. These are Accounts Payable/Receivable, Payroll, Checks, Journal entries, etc.
Many churches use a cash basis—recording income and expenses when they are received and paid—or a combination of both accrual and cash approaches. Your choice of method depends on your church's structure.
Nonprofits need to follow the Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP).
