From late October until early December, Presbyterian Financial Services Manager Sandra Kennerley and consolidation expert, Glen Williams, are visiting parishes in Central, Alpine and Southern presbyteries to discuss the financial consolidation process, what it means for parishes.
Consolidated financial accounts is a requirement for the Church under the Financial Reporting Act, and will benefit parishes in several key ways:
- Less compliance work for parishes and their treasurers
- No individual annual returns for Presbyterian churches.
- Completion of compliant year end accounts no longer required at a parish or presbytery level for Presbyterian churches
All treasurers and parish leaders are encouraged to attend.
The roadshows will cover what resources and support is available for parishes to assist them through the transition process, timeframes, along with discussion about what info is needed, when, and what the consolidation process will look like.
