The recommended accounting software is QuickBooks. At this time most Lodges are using the QuickBooks Desktop version and the Grand Lodge recommends the Desktop version. .

We recommend Lodges consider converting to the Online version at a convenient time. We believe the added functionality of the Online version will help the Lodges complete the accounting functions. For more information about the Online version, click here.

For those Lodges whose accounting personnel are not trained in QuickBooks, they should take the necessary actions to get them trained. Training can be found in a number of ways, like from currently trained Lodge members, books, Internet and QuickBooks advisors.

Depending on what we need to review, and if you are using the DeskTop version, we may ask you to send us a "Portable Company File". This is done from the "Send Company File" menu under the "File" drop down menu. Please let us know if you need help with this process and we can arrange for a remote session.
