Tuesday 26th November 2019 Data developments demonstration evening 26 November, 7pm at St James the Great Church, Birstall Data Developments have produced PCC accounting software for a number of years and many of our parishes use their PC based Finance Coordinator product. This evening has been arranged to meet an increasing demand for PCC accounts software that is simple to use and cloud based, so as to make the Treasurer role as simple as possible, whilst recognising the need to provide external support where necessary. Their online version of Finance Co-ordinator – MyFundAccounting.Online – carries the same DNA as Finance Co-ordinator but is updated to offer more flexibility and simplicity whilst still retaining the same compliance with Charity Commission requirements that makes Finance Co-ordinator so popular. MyFundAccounting.Online is designed to manage the accounts for churches and charities and enable reports to be produced in compliance with the Charity Commission requirements. It manages funds with ease and includes a selection of pre-designed account structures. Both Receipts & Payments and Pre-payment & Accruals accounts can be produced and a large number of reports are available including Balance sheet, SOFA, fund reports, budget reports and analysis reporting. This evening is open to anyone interested in using the software. There will be a demonstration from Data Developments staff, with time for Q&A and an assessment of whether it might work for your Parish. Attendance should be confirmed to John Orridge (Director of Finance) via john.orridge@leccofe.org, or call 0116 261 5308.’
