                            RE:  QuickBooks (QBs) & Pledge Accounting                                                        Originated:  January 2002


                 Below are some of our current views on the topic of Pledge Accounting and QuickBooks (QBs):

     >>  Following the position found in  0021,  pledge accounting should not be combined with a QBs fund accounting effort.  

     >>  As pointed out in  0004  and  0127,  do NOT try to combine pledge accounting with extremely important daily accounting and reporting needs.  Example:   there is no need to make regular entries to  "Pledge Receivables"  and  "Deferred Pledge Income"  accounting records.  Pledge GAAP reporting is done only at the end of the fiscal year. 

     >>  Via the appropriate database, the leadership needs to know if people are keeping their pledge commitments and then follow your policy in reporting this information to the Donor/Pledger.

     >>  More pledge information is found within  0061

     >>  See content of   0621  where donation records are keep using a separate QBs company.  We do NOT recommend that you use QBs for pledge accounting, as there is software out there that nicely cares for this need.

                Let me know at  Jim@bcidot.org  if you have some thoughts or observations on this topic..
