Adding a Liability Account


You can divide liabilities into short- term and long-term debt.

  • Short-Term Liabilities are also called short-term obligations. They can include payroll taxes that  have been withheld but not  submitted, or offerings received for other organizations that have not been remitted.
  • Long-Term Liabilities are long-term obligations. Your congregation probably has long-term debts such as a mortgage. Long-term debts are also considered liabilities.
