Record donations

Please show me how to record inventory donated to a church. Thanks.

What do you mean by inventory?

Are the donations of something which will be sold or are they assets which will be held and used by the the church members?

Also, please advise whose accounts you are preparing. Is it for the entity that donated the inventory, or is it for the church who received the donation?

Thanks for the quick reply.

It’s for our own account. We produce and stock goods. And we donated some of those goods to the church.


You would enter an inventory write-off. See Write off inventory | Manager. Local law will dictate the account to post the write-off to, whether there are tax implications, etc.

Thanks very much
