Exploring revenue and inventory: IFR4NPO Consultation

Event Overview

This event is part of our series of events taking a closer look at accounting and reporting issues specific to the non-profit sector as outlined in Part 2 of the Consultation Paper issued on 28 January.

The event is free and online in English.

The same event will be run in three sessions at time slots convenient for stakeholders in different regions and time zones. You can see the times of the sessions in the boxes opposite. Participants are welcome to attend any of the sessions.

Who should attend?

  • Local and international NPOs (NGOs and other non-profits) – senior finance staff & treasurers
  • Donors – involved in due diligence
  • Auditors (external auditors who give an opinion on financial reports)
  • Sector regulators and standard setters
  • Accountancy bodies

What topics will be discussed?

We will be addressing these two topics:

1. Non-exchange revenue

Non-profit organisations (NPOs) often receive resources such as cash contributions or grants, donations of physical items or services, and volunteer time. What principles are needed for recognizing, measuring and disclosing non-exchange income, provided without direct value to the contributor eg donations, grants, assets and services? What if the resource can only be used for specific purposes?

2. Inventory held for use or distribution

To deliver services, inventory can be provided to and held by non-profit organisations (NPOs) for their own use or to pass on to service recipients. How should low value, high volume inventory, such as donated items for re-sale be treated? How about donated or purchased inventory such as pharmaceuticals close to their ‘use by’ date and potentially not usable?

Here are additional resources and videos relating to Revenue and Inventory.
