Georgia-Cumberland Conference of Seventh-day Adventists

Auditing

Overview: 

Per North American Division policy and Georgia-Cumberland Conference policy, we are required to perform an examination of local church financial records and local school financial records on a biennial basis.  Due to technical differences, we use the term examination rather than audit . 

However, in order to minimize possible confusion we use the term audit for the following common questions we receive from treasurers. The answers to the questions can be accessed by clicking on the key word in each question.


Why audit? I do my work honestly for the Lord. Nobody needs to check on me. 

When are we going to be audited? 

Where will the audit be conducted? 

What do we have to do to prepare for the audit? 

How long do we have to keep the financial records of the church/school? 

What other services are offered by the auditing department?
