Services-in-kind

Many non-profit organisations (NPOs) have the ability to harness the resources of volunteers and other services.

What are the issues?

If someone donates their time, should this be recognised as income for the NPO? If it is, how should it be measured? Should only certain categories of services be recognised? Should there be disclosures about the number of people, hours and types of services donated? How might donated office space be treated? Will it impact an organisation’s indirect cost rate? If donated services are used to construct a building, how might the arising asset be valued for initial and subsequent measurement?
