Sample text

Unless the organization does not have any significant amounts of unpaid bills or uncollected income at the beginning or end of the period, accrual-basis reporting is required to present an accurate picture of the results of operations and of the financial position of the organization. Accrual-basis reporting is also required if an organization is trying to measure the cost of a product or service. It is impossible to know what a particular activity cost during the year if unpaid bills have not been included as an expense in the statement.

The statement should view the organization as a whole and report total assets, total liabilities, and total net assets. It should also report totals for unrestricted net assets, as well as information about the nature and amounts of temporarily restricted and permanently restricted net assets (unless disclosed in the notes to the financial statements). FASB ASC 958-210 provides the basic GAAP requirements for preparing the statement of financial position. CONCEPTS, RULES, AND EXAMPLES The statement of financial position, along with required note disclosures and other information in the financial statements, has a two-fold purpose, which is described in FASB ASC 958-210-45.

Donor-restricted contributions are reported as restricted revenues or gains (restricted support), which increase temporarily restricted net assets or permanently restricted net assets depending on the type of restriction. However, donorrestricted contributions whose restrictions are met in the same reporting period may be reported as unrestricted support provided that an organization reports consistently from period to period and discloses its accounting policy. Accounting for contributions is more fully discussed in Chapter 9.
