  8. Cash Accounting….. • Simpler method • Transactions based on date cash flows in/out • Date cheque signed secondary • Simple Accounting • Requires some knowledge • Navy League of Canada spreadsheet basis

  9. Navy League doesKISS Accounting • What you own • Less what you owe • Equals what you are worth • Money received during the year • Less money spent during the year • Equals increase in worth Balance Sheet Income statement

  10. Statement of Receipts and Disbursements • Amount in bank at start of year • Add receipts during the year • Subtract disbursements during the year • Should be bank at the end of the year

  11. Statement of Assets and Liabilities • Assets (what you own) • Liabilities (what you owe)

  12. Keeping the records • Paper (It’s OK) • Computer • Excel spreadsheet • Quicken • Simply Accounting • Navy League requirements are minimal

  13. Computer Software • Quicken, Simple Accounting • Advantage: Can prepare financial statements , etc • Disadvantage: Must learn system and invest in set up • Recommended for larger branches (or treasurers who are already familiar)

  14. Excel Software – NLC Program • Meets the by-law requirements • Provides a way to record financial transactions • And like magic: produces the required financial statements

  15. So tell us more about this magic… • Branch puts money into the bank • Treasurer records it in the Excel Receipt sheet • Results in an automatic update: • Branch Statement of Receipts • Branch Statement of Assets and Liabilities

  16. But there is more magic….. • Branch writes a check • Treasurer records it in the Excel Disbursements sheet, for cash based system the value is added in the column when cleared by bank • Results in an automatic update: • Branch Statement of Disbursement • Branch Statement of Assets and Liabilities

  17. A bit more magic……. • Branch buys an asset (maybe a boat) or incurs a liability (say a mortgage) • Treasurer enters it into Excel Record of Assets and Liabilities sheet • Results in an automatic update: • Branch Statement of Assets and Liabilities

  18. And some additional magic……. • Expanded Excel spreadsheet with some new features can be provided • Budget sheet with entries that automatically update the spreadsheet fields and Reports • After setting up accounts, the CRA Charities Tax Return Fields are automatically updated and correspond to the Return Line Numbers
