What a Difference Nonprofits Make: A Guide to Accounting Procedures.

What a Difference Nonprofits Make: A Guide to Accounting Procedures

This guide originally was prepared to help accountants who volunteer their time and expertise to the nonprofit sector. It explores differences between the accounting procedures used by for-profit and nonprofit organizations.

The guide contains basic information on subjects such as how an organization obtains tax-exempt status and its annual filing requirements, the responsibilities of board members, financial controls and basic accounting and financial reporting considerations. Internal issues, such as budget preparation, also receive consideration.

Managers and board members of nonprofits should find the guide useful. It also would be a good gift for financially unsophisticated nonprofit clients and helpful as a training aid for staff accountants unfamiliar with nonprofit entities.
