600 + Churches

Benkorp has been providing services to churches since 1994. In 1999 Benkorp established a relationship with SydneyAnglican Diocese and Uniting Church NSW Synod when we developed astandard accounting package with support services for each denomination. Since then wehave set-up, trained and supported over 600churches, including Crosslink, C3, Baptist, Presbyterian and independents/non-denominationals in Australia and other countries. 

Where we are today

After many trips to Cambodia, Kenya & Uganda to provide training in business and financial management, Cecil & Jeanette moved to Cambodia in 2010. There we set up accounting systems and provided training for local accountants/bookkeepers in Christian Churches and Not for Profit Organisations. We also provided training on starting and running businesses for young Cambodians living in Phnom Penh.

Since our return to Sydney and the rise of online/web based systems Jeanette has focused on Xero Accounting software. She says that she “will never go back to desktop accounting systems. Xero is sooo much easier it is a game changer!!” During the past 4 years we have set up over 100 organisations with Xero.

We are now based in Glebe, Sydney.
