e-Book: Guidance on New Nonprofit Financial Statement Reporting Framework

Running a sustainable nonprofit is complicated, especially with regulatory changes that impact the organization’s human resources, business processes, and IT systems. Nonprofits are now grappling with implementing a new financial statement reporting framework, that represents the most substantial improvement to financial reporting guidance in two decades.

This Accounting Standards Update, ASU 2016-14, Not-for-Profit Entities (Topic 958); Presentation of Financial Statements of Not-for-Profit Entities, affects substantially all nonprofits as well as creditors, donors, grantors, and others that use their financial statements.

Understanding and implementing accounting standards can be complex, time-consuming,
and often requires requisite skills and expertise not usually found on internal finance teams. At AAFCPAs, we take these client challenges to heart.
