Church Payroll With Fund Accounting
Having a church payroll system that obeys fund accounting principles is essential to the church’s operation! IconCMO payroll module reduces operational costs for organizations by preparing the payroll checks. The payroll module assists in the payment of the payroll liabilities to governmental agencies. The payroll module, built on fund accounting principles, ensures the church is FASB compliant. Thus, payroll entries post to the correct accounting fund for each employee.
IconCMO church payroll can handle pastors’ salaries easily. Pastor’s salaries can get complex — fast. Pastors can have housing allowances excluded from gross income for income tax purposes. But the allowance is not excluded from self-employment taxes. Add to this other allowances like a car, phone, and gas. Another example is retirement accounts where churches give a portion of the monthly amount to the pastor. Then the pastor pays for it on his own. All of these nuances can wreak havoc on a system that isn’t set up to handle it. Let IconCMO handle this for you as painlessly as possible.
