QB Issue Resolution:
Even though it is written for QB Desktop, I recommend the book Running QB for Not For Profits, by Kathy Ivens, to learn about the Data flow you need to be using.
I disagree with Liability accounting. Let’s review that you Asked for Donations. The people are writing their checks and giving to your organization. What you have is a Restricted Purpose. This is Income for you. If you wanted it not to be income to you, you collect them as Payable to the Church.
For This: “that could be used to exclude this collection and payment from being considered as an income or expense on our P&L report?”
You will use an income and expense activity, since it is all Payable to you.
