Ready for the new gifts-in-kind reporting requirements?
Abstract: The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) has new rules for how nonprofits that follow Generally Accepted Accounting Principles must report and value “nonfinancial assistance” — commonly known as gifts in kind. The changes are effective for annual periods beginning after June 15, 2021, and interim periods within annual periods beginning after June 15, 2022. For nonprofits that didn’t adopt the standards early, this article covers what they need to know. A sidebar discusses the impetus for the new requirements according to the FASB.
