Deep dive

To get a more in depth understanding of our thinking about fundraising costs read the IFR4NPO Consultation Paper Part 2: Issue 9 available here.

The journey so far

Initial ideas were set out in the Consultation Paper issued in January 2021, together with explanatory videos.  Part 2 Issue 9 of the Consultation Paper set out specific alternative approaches which were presented in a webinar in September 2021, before the consultation response period closed in Oct 21. During 2022 and 2023, the Technical and Practitioner Advisory Groups (TAG and PAG) have reflected on the responses and given feedback on the development of draft guidance for inclusion in International Non-Profit Accounting Guidance Exposure Draft 3.
