This webinar will guide advisers to nonprofit organizations as they continue to work through the new FASB reporting requirements for nonprofit organizations. The panel will review the specific changes to various financial reporting requirements required by the new standard, including the reduction in the number of net asset classes, change in presentation of cash flows, and enhanced reporting on liquidity. The event will discuss the reporting protocols and alternatives in the FASB.


The Financial Accounting Standards Board issued ASU 2016-14 Presentation of Financial Statements of Not-For-Profit Entities, Topic 958 (ASU 2016-14). ASU 2016-14 is effective for annual financial statements issued for fiscal years beginning after Dec. 15, 2017, and for interim periods within fiscal years beginning after Dec. 15, 2018.

ASU 2016-14 represents the most significant changes to not-for-profit (NFP) financial reporting in over 20 years. The requirements in ASU 2016-14 are designed to make it easier for financial statement users and stakeholders to understand NFP financial statements. ASU 2016-14 has impacted financial reporting for all NFP entities and requires financial officers at NFP entities to comply with these updated reporting requirements.

The standard requires NFP entities to increase disclosures in reporting cash flows and liquidity risks substantially. Also, an analysis of expenses by both function and natural classification is necessary for all NFP entities either on a separate statement, on the face of the statement of activities, or in the notes to the financial statements.

The standard also requires NFP entities to reduce the number of net asset classes from three to two. Financial officers at NFP entities must carefully examine asset structures, particularly assets with significant donor restrictions and endowments that are underwater. These standards are part of FASB's ongoing plan to improve the usefulness NFP financial reporting and transparency to the users of the financial statements.

Listen as our experienced panel provides thorough and practical guidance on the NFP reporting standards for net assets, expenses and liquidity.
