I am new to church accounting (and rusty on regular accounting) and we had some work done and the company did not charge us for the labor or the services. I understand that we can give a receipt for only the materials and not for the labor.
My question is should I record the amount of the service as income and as an expense, so essentially they cancel each other out? I am really confused how to deal with this, thank you for any help you can give me!
Do not record donated services anywhere in your accounting records.
Need training on how to use QBO or Aplos effectively for a church or better yet ...need an expert in either of those accounting software to do your monthly bookkeeping and/or payroll? See more on our accounting services!
