The new accounting rules for nonprofit revenues
Abstract: The FASB’s ASU No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers, raised concerns about which nonprofit transactions were covered by the new rules. Its 2018 follow-up, ASU No. 2018-08, Not-for-Profit Entities (Topic 958): Clarifying the Scope and Accounting Guidance for Contributions Received and Contributions Made, supplied some answers. But some organizations still have questions about how the new standards apply to their revenues. This article addresses some of the fine points about exchange transactions and contributions.
