(From Journal of Accountancy) On May 20, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) voted to extend by one year the implementation period for new accounting rules on revenue recognition and leases for nonprofits that have not yet issued their financial statements. The proposed relief related to revenue recognition was initially limited to private franchisers but was expanded to nonprofits based on feedback to FASB. For private companies and private not-for-profits, the effective date will be for fiscal years beginning after Dec. 15, 2021 and interim periods within fiscal years beginning after Dec. 15, 2022. FASB said it plans to issue documents detailing the new timetables in early June.
