Presbyterian Church of Aotearoa NZ

“Their level of their support and service has exceeded my expectations.”

“I am the Finance Manager of the Presbyterian Church of Aotearoa, New Zealand.¬† We are one of the biggest denominations in New Zealand. ¬†I work for the general assembly office which is a support office for 280 churches in New Zealand. “

“We have been working very closely with Laurenson‚Äôs Chartered Accountants for a couple of years now on a couple of levels.¬† One is a project to introduce Xero to our parish network while they support our office and our Xero general ledger.¬† They are also supporting 70 churches, so the relationship is directly between Laurenson‚Äôs and those churches.”

“They have done two things, I think, to adapt Xero as a product for use by our office and by churches.¬† One, is to customise the chart of accounts.¬† They have suggested a chart of accounts that is relevant for Presbyterian churches and have offered guidelines around that.¬† Secondly, they have customised the reporting for churches to satisfy statutory requirements on reporting for charities.” ¬†

“It is an ongoing recommendation of mine to churches that they utilise Laurenson and Xero as tools for their administration.¬†.¬† I think that they are very good, both in their implementation of Xero at a parish level and also for ongoing support with parish administrators and the use of Xero.”
