    Then how important is an accountant to a really small non-profit if we have a solid member providing their time using one of the suggested software? Are we breaking any laws if we don’t have a “bookkeeper” or “accountant”?

      Hi Angie,

      You are not legally required to have an outside accountant or bookkeeper for your nonprofit and can have one of your members do the accounting for you. I don’t run a nonprofit and you know your organization much better than I; however, in my experience, accounting and taxes are complex, especially for nonprofits. The peace of mind may be worth hiring an expert.

      I’d recommend doing some research and speaking to other nonprofits to see what works for them. Here’s one article I found that may help you get started: https://www.business.com/articles/nonprofits-guide-accounting/.

      I hope that was helpful! Let me know if you have any other questions.

      Best wishes,

      -Chelsea Krause
