And the church regularly has its books audited, ...

Really? This may be sensible, but mine has never had its books audited because none of the taxing authorities require us to file or pay taxes. And the members do not wish to bear the expense of an audit. Mine is very small, but has been around almost 300 years and our present building is almost 200 years old.

Does your church require audits for some purpose, or just to make sure the treasurer is not embezzling funds, or incompetent at arithmetic or simple accounting?
