At its meeting on June 22, 2021, Not-for-Profit Advisory Committee discussed the stakeholder feedback received on the Consultation Paper, “Contributions – Revenue Recognition and Related Matters,” about revenue recognition and fund accounting presentation.

With regards to revenue recognition, the Committee advised the AcSB:

  1. further guidance in the standard and illustrative examples would help clarify whether a contribution is externally restricted; and
  2. when determining when to recognize a contribution as revenue, the characteristics identified in the Consultation Paper are relevant.
