The Parish Accounts Workbook (PAW) is an Excel file produced by the Finance Department at Diocesan House, which assists treasurers in maintaining receipts and payment accounts. It can also produce financial statements which comply with the charities SORP, along with automatic completion of the Return of Parish Finance form which is required by the Archbishops Council.
Please note that the workbook has been tested to ensure compatibility with Microsoft Excel 2003 onwards for PC and Microsoft Excel 2011 onwards for MAC. Unfortunately, it is not compatible with free office software, but it is possible to purchase a copy of Microsoft Office with a substantial discount from Parish Buying (www.parishbuying.org.uk)
