FASB Proposes a Clarification to Nonprofit ASU

This weekend, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued a proposed technical correction to ASU No. 2016-14, Not-for-Profit Entities (Topic 958): Presentation of Financial Statements for Not-for-Profit Entities. As our readers will know, we’ve discussed this major change to nonprofit accounting at length on this blog. The proposed correction aims to clarify the minimum requirements for the reconciliation that a not-for-profit entity (NFP) is required to disclose if it has endowment funds.
The proposed amendments would not require transition guidance and would be incorporated in the final Accounting Standards Update. Additional details are available via the FASB website here. The FASB invites comments on all matters in the proposed update, including this correction.
