Grant expenses

Grants are made by non-profit organisations (NPOs) to other NPOs and service recipients.

What are the issues?

When an NPO makes a grant, when should the expense be recognised and measured? If the grantee has to meet certain criteria or fulfil conditions to be entitled to the grant, when should the expense be recognised? How is recognition affected if the grant passes through another organisation before reaching the organisation using the grant to provide a service? What information should be disclosed? Does a promise to make a grant create a liability, particularly in a multi-year arrangement?
