ASU No. 2016-14, Presentation of Financial Statements of Not-for-Profit Entities, is the most significant not-for-profit reporting standard in over 20 years and is now fully effective. To properly implement the new financial reporting model professionals must have a strong, working knowledge of the new requirements. Now is the time to obtain that knowledge! This course explains the new requirements, illustrates how the requirements manifest themselves in the financial statements, and clarifies key options that not-for-profits have in implementing the requirements. The course also examines other key changes affecting not-for-profits including the new revenue recognition and contribution requirements (which apply to 12/31/19 year-ends) and leases (which apply to 12/31/20 year-ends). The course materials utilize a highly illustrative and innovative format to provide an enhanced working knowledge of not-for-profit financial reporting.
