Non-Profit Organization Accounting

Most non-profits are operated by part-time volunteers and with minimal staff.  Their dedication and results are truly admirable.  Because of the frequent change in volunteers or their lack of experience in operating a non-profit business, results can sometimes fall short.
 
As a third party, Bayco Management will provide the necessary financial information in an accurate, consistent format.  We will keep the financial and business reporting systems the same year after year.  Once we understand what the organization's requirements are, we will insure they will be met and not vary.  This consistency and attention to detail helps the non-profit continue to grow.  This growth is often the result of the volunteers/members focusing on increasing revenues and fund raising activities, rather than administrative chores.
 
We can help you with New Setup and then maintain your non-profit organization's tax-exempt status by handling all the IRS reporting for you.


I.R.S. REQUIREMENTS FOR NON-PROFITS

Each year the IRS requires most tax-exempt organization to submit the Form 990 and its relation, which includes the following items:
  1. Income Statement with very specific revenue and expense categories like donations, salaries, postage, rent...

  2. Balance Sheet with specific categories like cash, accounts receivable, accounts payable...

  3. Functional Expense Statement with all the expenses allocated to either program services, fundraising, or operations.

  4. Individual Program Expense Statement that reports all of the expenses for each program or service like seminar programs or educational mailings.

  5. Revenue Support Schedules that detail the organization's sources of income in specific categories like charitable donations, membership fees, investment income.
The IRS uses these very specific revenue and expense classifications to determine if your organization will retain its tax-exempt status. So it's imperative that you build your accounting system around these revenue and expense classifications.
