Paxton Church & Charity Accounting Software

We have two versions of our best-selling Church & Charity Accounting Software available, depending on your requirements.

The STANDARD version includes comprehensive facilities for multi fund accounting, donation bookings, Gift Aid claims, transfers, purchase ledger, budgets and Charity Commission SORP compliant reporting.  Both accruals and receipts and payments accounting methods are supported. Reports can be produced for any fund, combination of funds or all funds together.

The ADVANCED version provides the complete accounting facility.  It includes all facilities of the Standard version plus billings, sales ledger, project accounting and foreign currency processing.  The Advanced package supports the accruals accounting method only.  In addition to funds reporting, the Advanced version includes financial and budget reporting on projects within a fund, or even across multiple funds. The foreign currency facility allows foreign bank accounts, donations, funds and projects.

Both are available online (accessible from the cloud anytime, from any location and any device) or on a PC with our Windows Desktop version.

Before using Paxton, we were using paper books. We decided to buy Paxton after reviewing the market and recommendations from existing users. Since moving to Paxton, we have much better analysis. We have reduced our paperwork, and no longer need to analyse the accounts manually.

We have used Paxton software for our church accounts for the last six years and it does exactly what we want it to do. In particular, it copes well with our large number of “funds”, around twenty, and I can always find out where the money is.

The gift aid reports are extremely helpful, and others can be set up to be downloaded. As a non book keeper by trade, I find it intuitive and easy to use.

Saves accounting time – it makes answering questions easier and it formats reports according to the latest SORP.

Paxton have an outstanding support team available to answer any questions you may have

Gift Aid reclaims are easier, complete and more accurate.  Funders appreciate that we have a serious financial system in place.

Paxton support line is probably the best I have ever experienced across many platforms of software I have previously used.

Simple, stress-free software.

As a small charity, Paxton Software provides exactly what we need for day-to-day, year end and all points in between.
