(Mount Dora, FL)
As the Bookkeeper,I do enter the accounting data, write the checks, and reconcile the monthly bank statements for a church thrift store that is a start-up.
We are all new to this and it is generating a decent income that supports other worthy causes.
My question is: Is this not the way it should be done? Nobody seems to have a problem with it and the pastor oversees the reconciliation in Aplos accounting software.
"Tip! The individual reconciling your books should NOT be the same individual that enters the accounting data and should definitely NOT be the same person that writes the checks or controls the monies."
