Non Profit Segment

Running a Nonprofit is very rewarding, but it can be challenging as well. First of all, the staff is usually small and tasks must be given to people who have little or no training in the area required. No where is this more true than in doing the books. Few Nonprofits can afford to hire a true CPA or a fulltime bookkeeper to handle the accounting functions, and many nonprofits are small enough that keeping the books isn’t a fulltime job anyway. Many end up just having the Executive Director or the Administrative Assistant enter the transactions when they have the time.

Nonprofits have very particular reporting needs that most other businesses using QuickBooks® do not have. For instance, only Nonprofits need a Profit and Loss report compared to the budget for the board; only Nonprofits have to track how a restricted grant was spent; only Nonprofits need expenses reported on a by program basis; and only Nonprofits have to track pledges, membership dues, tuitions, and so on.
