Reliable financial management builds trust and the joy of donating. With the GoBD-compliant software from ChurchTools, you can master the requirements and legal specifications that church congregations are subject to in accounting and donation management.

From anywhere and on any device

All your data is available to you in a secure cloud so that you can carry out your church bookkeeping from your PC, MacBook, tablet or smartphone. You can log in to ChurchTools securely from anywhere and get started without having to install it on your computer.

Suitable for everyone

Different masks enable easy transactions – both for the experienced accountant in the expert view and for the department manager without previous knowledge in a simple view to make transactions for their department or cash register (such as the book shop, café or youth cash register). Appropriate authorizations can be assigned for this.

Full overviews

The intelligent integration in ChurchTools provides you with an overview of all donations made by individual users as well as a comparison with their donations from the same period in the previous year at a glance. An entry page with the latest changes, easy definition of budgets and tracking of income and expenditure, a booking journal with quick filter options and much more provide you with the necessary overview at all times.

Safe and secure

The data of donors and their donations are treated in accordance with data protection regulations. All transactions are retained and are not deleted. Data that formed the basis for a transaction cannot be changed. Changes to editable data are logged. All data is transmitted in encrypted form and stored securely on the servers of a certified data center in Germany. Appropriate access controls ensure further data security.

Church accounting checked for GoBD conformity

ChurchTools Finance is a secure financial accounting system.

GoBD stands for “Principles for the proper keeping and storage of books, records and documents in electronic form”. They regulate which basic principles you must observe for your books and other records so that they are recognized by the tax authorities for tax evidence purposes. Some of the most important are traceability, truth, clarity, completeness, timely entries and the immutability of the records.

We have had an independent auditor test our accounting software and confirm its GoBD compliance. We therefore guarantee that these principles are fully complied with. For your church community, this not only means security and clarity in your financial matters, but also a product that complies with current legal standards.
