Congregational Bookkeeping Unit

The Uniting Church SA Financial Services Team are aware that many congregations face challenges with their bookkeeping and financial reporting obligations. With the increasing requirements in a complex world of financial and taxation reporting and the demands of our modern society it can be difficult to find the right solution.

Whatever the situation in your congregation, our team is able to help you with either short term or long term assistance. Information is included on this site which may be of assistance to treasurers. If you are not able to find the answer to your questions, please give one of the CBU team a call.

Please note that during the end of financial year period (December to March) the CBU is unable to undertake MYOB installations and training or consultancy as resources are fully utilised in preparing financial statements for all CBU clients. Enquires are still welcomed and CBU will endeavour to accommodate requests as soon as possible.
