People with common interests meet regularly in their free time and form clubs and societies. Whether for amateur chefs, stamp collectors or footballers, clubs are as popular as they are varied. Clubs have an uncomplicated legal form and are funded by membership fees, private subsidies and state support. In most cases, non-profit organisations are not run by accountants – so it is even more important to have a comprehensive tool which allows non-accountants to achieve professional results. CashCtrl simplifies club accounting – free of charge!
Regulations for clubs and societies are laid out in the Swiss Civil Code. Unlike public limited companies or limited companies, the purpose of a club’s activity is not to make a profit. Many more like-minded people pursue their hobbies in such clubs, without wanting to commit to an economic duty. Nevertheless, the exercise of the club’s activities entails various financial obligations. Clubs can also have income and expenditures, as well as assets at their disposal. So, it makes sense to keep accounts – and suitable accounting software is a must.
According to Art 69(a) of the Swiss Civil Code, clubs and societies are legally obliged to keep accounts and the executive committee is responsible for this task. The provisions of the Swiss Code of Obligations concerning bookkeeping and accounting apply mutatis mutandis. Most clubs are not required to be inscribed in the commercial register, so it is enough to keep accounts of income, expenses and assets – simple accounting is sufficient.
To ensure that the association’s accounts add up and there are no surprises to be expected, suitable accounting software should be used. This simplifies the administration for the treasurer as well as the club’s accounting, saving a lot of time.
