This course walks the participant through a change in Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) regarding how the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) now wants not-for-profits (NFPs) and business entities to report contributions and exchanges (both as revenues and expenses).  Under Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) Topic 958 - Not-for-Profit Entities, Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2018-08: Clarifying the Scope and the Accounting Guidance for Contributions Received and Contributions Made represents a clarification and a change regarding how certain grants might be recorded on the books of donor and donee organizations. 

 

This course also discusses the expected implementation dates for NFPs and businesses noting differences for special circumstances. Learners will also get a healthy dose of examples provided by the FASB that will drive home the concepts presented in each section. Lastly, there is a discussion of reporting and disclosure requirements.

The course was well laid out and went through each of the definitions with great examples. It was easy to understand and made intuitive sense. Even without a strong Not For Profit background, I was able to follow along without much trouble.

The course does a great job at discussing ASU 2018-08 and how the standard affects certain transactions. If you are part of a not-for-profit agency, please take this course.

I did not like the way the questions were arranged for the final exam. A double negative trap is not a test to determine if the class material was absorbed.

This course provides very detailed explanations and examples. Take notes on the slides as they don't necessarily show the conclusions.

A thorough and well-paced presentation. Material is a bit on the dry side but Adam Sanders is able to keep the audience alive.

These government rules could be written a bit clearer. So the topic is hard one to present but did a good job.
