Benkorp & the Presbyterian Church NSW

Benkorp works with the General Office finance team to develop, and maintain the church accounting package specifically for Presbyterian Churches in NSW. 

Local churches have their own financial responsibilities as well as compliance with government and taxation requirements and reporting to the General Office.

Benkorp has significant experience and understanding of the requirements of church accounting. This experience is now applied to this project to help raise the standard of financial management for all Presbyterian churches in NSW.

We understand how demanding the responsibilities are in a local church and especially for volunteers and staff.

There is a solution for your church with some options for setup and ongoing support.

What is PVAP: Presbyterian Villages Accounting Package?

This package is specifically designed for use by local Presbyterian villages, retirement and care units associated with churches in NSW. A village is typically set up and operated as a separate entity by the church and independent from Presbyterian Aged Care. Annual financials are submitted to the General Office as part of reporting obligations to the General Assembly.

The same offer as for PCAP is available – setup, training and support provided at no charge to all local villages, retirement and care units associated with churches in NSW.
