A specialized financial platform for nonprofits and churches can be a dynamic tool, especially with the assistance of a trusted accountant to advise them. We’ll discuss setup, customized reporting, and more. This session is ideal for professional accountants and bookkeepers who are considering managing nonprofits or churches in Aplos. It also helps to have at least a basic understanding of fund accounting principles and bookkeeping tasks.

  2. Review common chart of accounts structures for nonprofit and churches. Understand customization and administration options for streamlined chart of accounts setup and granular reporting.
  3. Gain advanced knowledge to implement dimensional reporting using tags. Create popular customizations for specialized nonprofit financial reporting.
  4. Review how to use a fund accounting software to accomplish common nonprofit or church tasks, including transaction imports, journal entry examples, donation tracking, payroll imports, recurring transactions, fixed assets, and allocations. 


Alex Acree, Head of the Customer Services Department of Aplos Software, has worked with hundreds of nonprofits and churches to set up their accounts and build the reports they require. He will give a detailed lesson on how to accomplish this for your nonprofit and church clients.
