Are you ready for the significant changes coming to your organization’s financial statements? Recently, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued a new Accounting Standard Update, ASU 2016-14: Presentation of Financial Statements for Not-for-Profit Entities, updating the over 20-year old financial reporting model of not-for-profit entities.
