Financial Accounting Alert

The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued  Accounting Standards Update (ASU) 2014-09 and ASU 2018-08 on new revenue recognition guidance and guidance on accounting for contributions.  Upon its effective date, it will replace most pre-existing revenue recognition guidance, including industry-specific guidance in the US and those currently accepted Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). The effective date for public entities interim and annual reporting periods begin after December 15, 2017. Nonpublic organizations, (which most health centers are in this category) were given an additional year, but the guidance will be in full effect in December 2019.
