Is Your Budget Ready For 2015?

Posted by Peter Frank on Dec 3, 2014 9:00:00 AM
If your church operates on a fiscal calendar year, it’s time to finalize your 2015 budget. While entering a budget is not required, it is quite helpful—and Church360° Ledger makes it easy.

Retrace Your Steps with Secure Event Log

Recent Software Updates

Posted by Peter Frank on Oct 1, 2014 9:00:00 AM
As the number of Church360° Ledger customers grows, we receive more helpful user feedback! As a result of that feedback, we’ve made the following bug fixes and enhancements to Church360° Ledger over the last few months:

How to Use Restricted Funds

Posted by Peter Frank on Sep 3, 2014 9:00:00 AM
When offerings are given for specific purposes, it is required that these dollars are spent for that purpose only. In order to properly track these gifts and prevent them from accidentally being spent, they should be tracked separately in your Chart of Accounts.

How to Reconcile Transactions

Posted by Peter Frank on Aug 6, 2014 9:00:00 AM
Just as it is important to balance your personal checking account to ensure the accuracy of your monthly bank statement, it is equally as important to reconcile your church’s asset accounts with their bank statements.

Editing Transactions

Posted by Peter Frank on Jul 2, 2014 9:00:00 AM

It’s bound to happen: You’re adding a transaction, you make a typo, and you don’t realize it until after you have saved the transaction.

When we developed Church360° Ledger, we wanted to make it easy to correct mistakes but difficult for anyone with ill intentions to manipulate actual transactions. We came up with a solution: give users an experience of changing a transaction, but create a new offsetting transaction in the background.

Writing and Printing Checks

Posted by Peter Frank on Jun 4, 2014 9:00:00 AM

Writing Checks

  1. Click "New Transaction" and select "Check."
  2. Enter the Memo of the check. This is optional but is highly recommended for reference purposes.
  3. Choose the date of the check. This should be the date that you print the check.
  4. Select your payee. If this is a new payee, type their name and the payee will be created. You can add contact details later.
  5. Enter your check number. This is optional as well. If you don’t know the check number, leave it blank and it will be auto-generated for you at the time of printing.
  6. Choose your asset account. The list will only show any Asset accounts that have been selected as checking accounts.

Customizing Reports

Posted by Peter Frank on May 7, 2014 9:00:00 AM
Every treasurer has their own preferences and likes to report specific information to the church. Because of this, the reports in Church360° Ledger have been built to be tailored to meet your individual needs.
