You can access the Church Treasurer’s Handbook which contains guides that have been prepared by the BUV’s auditors, Saward Dawson. This is a comprehensive guide to tax issues and Treasurer information that relates to Churches. The production of this document has been funded by Baptist Financial Services. These guides are available on the Saward Dawson website. To access the documents the username is BFS, and the password is ministry316.
We have put together some documents to assist Treasurers. Using the “Search” box is also a handy way to find other documents on the BUV website. Please please email firstname.lastname@example.org to suggest or provide more documents.
