In August 2016, the FASB implemented an accounting standards update (ASU 2016-14) to refresh the previous reporting model.  AAFCPAs discusses the main provisions of this ASU, which include net asset classification (collapsing three asset classifications into two), reporting expenses by natural function and category, the place-in-service approach for property and equipment purchases, and underwater endowment reporting.  We review effective dates, and provide transition guidance and tips for a smooth implementation. 

We also discuss the impact of the new Revenue Recognition standard, which will require significant management judgment, in addition to changing the way many Nonprofits recognize revenue in their financial statements.
