Accounting for Not-For-Profit Organizations Dayag:) 

Presently, there are two (2) schools of thought on the accounting for not-for-profit organizations: 1.

There are little differences between business and not-for-profit accounting 

Therefore, its advocates believe not-for-profit accounting could, with little exceptions, make use of the principles applicable to business accounting

 

Non business accounting is going to be essentially like business accounting

Non business organizations will prepare operating statements, balance sheets, and funds flow statement 


The primary focus will be on the operating statement and its principles will be governed by the same principles that now apply in business accounting

Fund accounting, as it is currently practiced, will remain in vogue (remain popular). 

The advantages of fund accounting were extolled from:  

The legal point of view

The management control viewpoint

Its advocates believe that fund have legal restrictions or discretionary restrictions 

Accordingly, they must be segregated between: o o

Restricted funds

Unrestricted funds

The international accounting unit for many not-for-profit organizations is the fund: o

Defined as a fiscal and accounting entity with a self-balancing set of accounts recording cash and other financial resources with all

related liabilities and residual equities, or balances, and changes therein which are segregated for the purpose of carrying on specific activities or attaining certain objectives in accordance with special regulations, restrictions, or limitations: o

Different types of funds are necessary to distinguish between:  


      Fund accounting: o

Assets whose use is restricted by donors

Funds commonly used by some of the not-for-profit organizations were as follows: 

Assets that may be used as authorized by the BODs

Unrestricted funds (sometimes called unrestricted current fund, general fund, or current unrestricted fund) Restricted funds (sometimes called restricted current fund or current restricted fund) Endowment fund (pure or term endowment)

Agency fund (sometimes called custodian fund)

Annuity fund and life income fund (sometimes called living trust fund) Loan fund

Plant fund (sometimes called land, building, and equipment fund)

Has been used to organize and manage resources for various purposes in accordance with regulations, restrictions, or limitations imposed by parties outside the institution or with discretions issued by the governing board


A clear distinction of funds that are externally restricted and those that are internally designated by action of the governing board has been maintained in the accounts and disclosed on the financial reports

Accrual basis of accounting: o o

All not-for-profit organizations accounting for revenues and expenses use the accrual basis of accounting.

Requires not-for-profit organization that issue GAAP basis financial statements to recognize depreciation expense on long-lived assets 

Depreciation should be recorded if:  


Note: 

Financial statements: o

The assets arise because of donations

Works of art and historical treasures that meet the definition of ‘collections’ 

The assets are gifts

Need not be capitalized nor depreciated

Financial statements prepared in accordance with the present GAAP represent a shift away from the fund reporting to an emphasis on the organization as a whole


The ‘equity account fund balance’ has been replaced with the term ‘net assets’


Under the present GAAP:


The financial statements display three (3) classes of net assets:

    

It requires classifications of the organization’s net assets based on the existence or absence of donor-imposed restrictions Unrestricted

Temporarily restricted

Permanently restricted Note:

Any changes of these three (3) classes of net assets must be reported

Accounting for Not-For-Profit Organizations

Financial statements (continuation): o

The financial statements are: 

Statement of financial position (balance sheet) 

Which will report organizations-wide total for assets, liabilities, and net assets, and assets identified as unrestricted, temporarily restricted, and permanently restricted

Statement of activities 

Which reports revenues, expenses, gains, losses, and reclassifications or changes in the organization’s net assets or change in equity: permanently restricted, temporarily restricted, and unrestricted

Minimum requirements are organization-wide totals, changes in net assets for each class of assets, and all expenses recognized only in the unrestricted classification

 

A display of a measure of operations in the statement of activities is permitted

Statement of cash flows 

With categories similar to regular business enterprises: o




o 

 

Classification of net-assets o o o

They are accompanying notes to the above statements necessary for disclosure purposes

This division of net assets is the focal point in presenting financial statement for not-for-profit entities

These classes of net assets are totally dependent on the existence or absence of donor-imposed obligations

The organization’s net assets, revenue, expenses, gains, and losses are classified according to the three (3) classes of net assets 

Revenues, gains, and losses:


  o

Can be reported in each net asset class Are reported only in unrestricted net assets class

The three (3)classes are: 1.

Permanently restricted net assets: 


Are the portion of net assets whose use is limited by donor-imposed stipulations that do not expire and cannot be removed by action of the not-for-profit entity

Temporarily restricted net assets: 

Are the portion of net assets whose use is limited by donor-imposed stipulations that either: o o


Accounting for Hospitals: o o

Expire (time restrictions)

Can be removed by the organization fulfilling the stipulations (purpose restrictions)

Unrestricted net assets: 


Notes to the financial statements

Are the portion of net assets that carry no donor-imposed stipulations

Hospitals depend its large part on donations and grants, which often come with restrictions

Hospitals will use normal accrual accounting methods, including the classification of costs as expenses rather than expenditure, and will not record budgetary accounts or encumbrances on the books


Fund accounting is required for Hospitals


In general, there are two (2) types of funds used by a hospital:

 1.

In order to maintain accountability over restricted resources General (unrestricted) fund: 

Account for all resources of the hospital which are not subject to outside restrictions; they are used for day-to-day operations



Board-designated funds are unrestricted





  

Is an internal process which can be altered at the discretion of the BOTs of the hospital Are externally imposed and not subject to alteration by the board

Items in the General (unrestricted) fund category are as follows: o

Assets whose use is limited:


Agency funds:

  

Include assets set aside by the governing board for identified purpose Are included in the General funds as both an asset and a liability

They are used to account for fees collected as an agent of physicians who have privatepractice patients coming to hospital offices provided to the staff physicians


Property and equipment used for general operations, and the related liabilities 

Accounting for Hospitals: o

In general, there are two (2) types of funds used by a hospital: 2.

Donor-restricted funds:  

Accounts for temporarily restricted and permanently restricted resources This class is subdivided into: 1.

Temporary restricted fund: 

May be: 

Specific purpose fund o

Is a restricted fund used by health care providers to account for principal and income in accordance with donor’s specified restrictions

Term endowment fund o

Used by hospital to account for a trust where the principal must be kept

intact and the income be expanded for either current operations or a specific purpose in accordance with grantor’s wishes o

May be in perpetuity, or it may be fixed term or until a specific event occurs

Plant replacement and expansion fund o

A restricted fund used by hospitals and other health care providers to

account for donor’s contributions that must be used to acquire property, plant, and equipment

 2.

Life income fund

Permanently restricted fund: 

Is also an endowment fund but differs from a term-endowment fund in that the principal

must be maintained intact in perpetuity and only the income may be used in accordance with o

Accounting for Revenues and Expenses: 

the donor’s wishes

Revenues and gains 1.

Patient service revenue: o o

Include room and board, nursing services, and other professional services

Typically are recorded at established (gross) rates as the services are provided but are reported net of amounts that are considered deductions from revenues 


Objective is to report the amount that the hospital is entitled to collect as patient service revenues

Allowance accounts are used to reduce receivables for estimated deductions from revenues as well as estimated doubtful accounts 

Deductions from revenues include: 

Courtesy allowances:

Contractual adjustments:

o o o

Discounts to doctors and employees Discounts arranged with third-party payors (Philhealth for example) that frequently have agreements to reimburse at less-than-established rates

Note: 

Charity care services provided free of charge to patients who qualify under a hospital’s charity care policy are excluded from both gross and net patient service revenues 

According to the AICPA audit guide and accounting guide, health care organizations: o

Charity care cases do not qualify for recognition as receivables or revenues in the financial statements


Management’s policy for providing charity care, as well as the level of charity care provided, should be disclosed in the financial statements 

Such disclosure generally is made in the notes to the financial

statement and is measured based on the provider’s rates, costs 2.

units of service, or other statistical measure

Premium fees o o

Also known as ‘subscriber fees’ or ‘capitation fees’

Are revenues from agreements which a hospital provides any necessary patient services (perhaps from a contractually established list of services) for a specific fee 


The fee is usually a specific fee per member per month

The fees are earned whether the standard charges for services actually rendered are more or less than the amount of the fee i.e. without regard to services actually provided in the period

Therefore, they are reported separately from patient service revenues Growing portion of hospital revenues in many hospitals

What is the difference between charity care and bad debts expense? 

Charity care results from the hospital’s policy of providing health care to individuals who meet certain financial criteria 

Health care services provided as charity care were never intended to provide cash flows

Bad debts result from extending credit

Accounting for Not-For-Profit Organizations

Accounting for Colleges and Universities o

Colleges and universities are required to use fund accounting due to the large amount of restricted resources under their control 

Six (6)Types of funds: 1.

Current funds o

Account for resources of the institution that will be used in carrying out the primary objectives: instruction, research, extension, and public service

o o

Restricted current funds have been restricted by donors or grantors to specific purposes Unrestricted current funds are not subject to outside restraints on usage 

Resources designated by the BOTs are still considered ‘unrestricted’ 


Loan funds o o

Since they lack externally-imposed restrictions

Are established for resources that are to be loaned to students, faculty or staff Not for loans, notes, or bonds payable to others


Designed to hold assets, not liabilities


Fund balances should separately report ‘restricted’ and ‘unrestricted’ amounts: 

Restricted amounts 

Represent resources which outside parties provided to the university on condition that it will be used for loans

Unrestricted amounts 


Endowment and similar funds o

Represent resources which were placed in the loan fund at the election of the university itself

Endowment funds: 

Resources which outside parties contributed to the university on condition that they not be spent but invested to yield earnings which may be spent


Term endowment funds:


Quasi-endowment funds:

  4.

Investment in plant 

Contain liquid assets which are to be used to acquire new plant assets in the future

Note: 

The fund balances of the first three (3) funds should be subdivided further into ‘restricted’ and ‘unrestricted’ balances, based on whether classification in the plant fund is the result of external requirements or internal designation

 6.

Agency funds o

Investment in plant fund balance isn’t subdivided

Resources received by the institution which belong to others, such as student body fees, are held in agency funds, with a liability equal to the assets collected

o o o

Accrual accounting is used

There is never any fund balance in agency funds, since all assets held are owed to others

There are certain similarities to ‘Accounting of governmental funds’ especially in the reporting of expenditures rather than expenses
