Reporting Requirements (general)

If you have ever been a church treasurer before computerization, you will remember that the church treasurer was required to send to the Conference each month the duplicate sheets, as well as the church treasurer’s remittance report. Computerizing the treasurer’s records does not change the requirement for reporting. The same reports in computer form are required.

Since there is more than one computer program being used in our Conference, the names or titles of these reports will differ from one program to another program. Someone who has been a treasurer during the manual era and whose records are now computerized will find little difficulty understanding which reports to send to the Conference. For those of you not familiar with the manual system, the following outline should prove helpful.
