Has anyone out there used Church Windows accounting software for their accounting at their church?


We have had a lot of issues with CHURCH WINDOWS.

We are considering changing to QB Nonprofit and would appreciate any info anyone can share.

Changing to QBO or Desktop QB
by: Vickey

I have not used Church Windows, so I cannot tell you how hard it would be to switch from that software to QuickBooks.

I personally love Quickbooks Online (QBO) and have set up multiple churches in it.

It works very well...if set up correctly!

It is a software primarily built for "for-profits" so even the Nonprofit edition you are referring to can be challenging for a non-accountant to set up and use.

I have had churches that pay me thousands of dollars to "clean up" QBs as it was set up wrong in the beginning.

SOOOO...if you decide to go that route...do at least one of the following:

1. Order and faithfully follow Lisa London's instructions in her How To books for QuickBooks. See more information on those books here: http://www.freechurchaccounting.com/QuickBooks.html

2. Or hire someone familiar with setting up QB or QBO for churches and can train you how to use it effectively. Please read more on my bookkeeping services here: http://www.freechurchaccounting.com/vickeysbookkeeping.html
