AAFCPAs Educational Webinar: Revenue Recognition for Nonprofits

When: Wednesday, May 23rd, 2018 | 12:00pm – 1:00pm (1 CPE Credit)
Where: Live Webinar | Watch OnDemand >>.

Topic 958

The proposed Accounting Standards Update (ASU), Not-for-Profit Entities (Topic 958): Clarifying the Scope and the Accounting Guidance for Contributions Received and Contributions Made, issued in August 2017, assists entities in evaluating whether transactions should be accounted for as reciprocal transactions (exchanges) or nonreciprocal transactions (contributions) and in distinguishing between conditional and unconditional contributions. Distinguishing between contributions and exchange transactions determines which revenue recognition guidance is to be applied. Exchange transactions entered into by nonprofits will be accounted for within the scope of ASC 606, or other applicable guidance, while the guidance related to accounting for contributions received is included in Subtopic 958-605, Not-for-Profit Entities – Revenue Recognition.

Topic 606

Revenue Recognition: ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606), is effective for public business entities and certain not-for-profit entities with annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017. All other entities are required to adopt this by annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018. Entities may now early adopt. This new standard may result in significant changes to the timing and amount of revenue recognized by an entity.
