Dear Stakeholders,

Since International Non-Profit Accounting Guidance Exposure Draft 1 (INPAG ED1) was launched on 20 November 2022, we have focused on sharing the content and proposals. But with the deadline for responses just 6 weeks away, we are pivoting to focus on hearing your feedback.

Earlier this month we had the immense pleasure of meeting stakeholders from Latin America and Caribbean in person, at our first physical outreach event since the project started in 2019. Percy from Peru said: “Thank you – it was a great experience! The most beneficial aspect was the quality of exhibitors and presenters. I now feel much more confident and motivated to submit a response to INPAG ED1”.

Read on for details of upcoming online consultation events for Africa and Asia, resources from previous events, and to download the response template.  Take our 2-question mini-poll to let us know your preferred times for events, and see if you could be the right fit to respond to our call for new members of the project Steering Group. For stakeholders in UK & Ireland, there’s also a helpful article from ACCA Global, outlining the differences and similarities between INPAG and UK/Ireland GAAP.


IFR4NPO in Latin America! 

On 7 February we held a Consultation Meeting in Colombia with 49 people from 14 different countries in Latin America and the Caribbean. Our thanks to SMS LatinoAmerica for sponsoring the networking cocktail at the end of a long but rewarding day! We would also like to appreciate KPMG in Panama City for hosting a fruitful meeting on 8 February. It was a particular joy to meet the many Country Champions from the region for the first time.

The slides used during the Consultation Meeting are here (in Spanish).
