Hello.

This is a newly incorporated association.  I have put my hand up as Treasurer with no experience and have realised that some guidance in reporting would be appreciated as the research is quite time consuming without an accountant to hand.  

So to date we have only got as far as setting up a bank account and are poised to invoice our sponsor companies which should bring in circa $150k which will be spent on professional services and promotional events.

Thanks ...
