Hello Ranggamati

Great advice given by FS so far, been a charity I would be looking at hiring a part time bookkeeper (shop around you may be able to source an employee or even a contractor at similar costing – as many bookkeepers average $30 to $60 per hour (possibly even a semi retired person with experience in charity as accounts for charities are not the same for normal business) in particular what you can offer to your staff from a payroll option.

I also do recommend that the bookkeeper get a brief from your accountants to make sure they prepare books to the way they want it to avoid double handling. it may be worth for the first few months to pass the file for review to the accountants to highlight any issues rather then leaving to end of year.

Hopefully your accountants fees are not to high for monthly review of file.
