These checklists and illustrative financial statements have been developed by the AICPA Accounting and Auditing Publications staff to serve as nonauthoritative practice aids for use by preparers of financial statements and by practitioners who audit, review, or compile financial statements. The checklists address those requirements most likely to be encountered when reporting on financial statements of a not-for-profit entity prepared in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles.
Relevant financial statement reporting and disclosure guidance issued through April 30, 2015, has been considered in the development of this edition of the checklist. The accounting guidance in this checklist has been conformed to reflect reference to the Financial Accounting Standards Board Accounting Standards Codification® as it existed on April 30, 2015.
