Ready or not, here it comes! “It” is FASB ASU 2016-14 on Not-For-Profit Financial Reporting and Disclosures. Don’t panic; YHB is here to help you implement, but we need your assistance and we need to get started now.

Minor changes include:

  • Net asset classification
  • Reporting of investment expenses (net with investment income)
  • Disclosing the dollar amount of endowment funds underwater
  • Adopting a policy for underwater endowments (even if not currently underwater)
  • Statement of Functional Expenses – assessing the allocation methods and determining if any changes are necessary

Major changes include:

  • Liquidity disclosures

YHB’s Annual Symposium in June included a presentation on this update to the current not-for-profit financial statement reporting model. For those who attended the symposium, as well as those who did not have a chance to attend, we will provide sample disclosures, especially for liquidity, that will help assist with the implementation and help to reduce the YHB fee for implementation.
The effective date is for December 31, 2018 / June 30, 2019 audits so let’s start drafting the liquidity footnote and reviewing the statement of function expenses this summer.
