Dear Stakeholders,

The countdown has begun! On March 31, we shall be closing the response period for the International Non-Profit Accounting Guidance Exposure Draft 1 (INPAG ED1).

Scroll down for links to resources, all conveniently in one place, and some short surveys.

I know, there are plenty of reasons to leave this to someone else! But be assured that your response will make a difference. The risk of NOT responding is that the INPAG goes ahead without your perspective.



Whether you are looking for a short read, long read, explainer videos, webinar resources or responses submitted to so far, we have something for you!


If submitting a full detailed response feels beyond you, and you are sharing opinions on your own behalf as an individual, try out these surveys!

  • Survey 1 – Describing NPOs / reporting entity: 14 questions
  • Survey 2 – Concept and principles: 8 questions
  • Survey 3 – Finacial statement presentation: 16 questions
  • Survey 4 – Narrative reporting: 8 questions

All the surveys can be accessed in French and Spanish.
