Cash transfers (grants and donations)

A significant source of funding for non-profit organisations (NPOs) which they can use to further their objectives.

What are the issues?

If a grant or donation can only be used for specific purposes or time period, how is it recognised, measured and reported? When should income be recognised if there are performance criteria and/or obligations? Can income be recognised if cash is received on a reimbursement basis and the work needs to be audited? When should donations to purchase a capital asset be recognised? What if the donation is repayable if the asset, at some future date, is no longer used for its intended purpose?
