What's included in Eide Bailly's ASU Solution?
We can take the worry and stress out of your implementation of the new standard with our ASU Solution.

Here’s what we can provide for you:

  • Expert guidance and coordination of the entire adoption, conversion, and implementation process
  • A “refresh” of your chart of accounts and financial statement report groupings to capture the information you need to conform to the new financial statement reporting requirements so you can achieve clearer, more meaningful financial statement presentation and note disclosures
  • Advice about developing customized policies for the management of board designations of net assets, liquidity positions and liquidity management strategies, and the continuation or suspension of distributions from underwater endowments’
  • A top-to-bottom review of the metrics and methods you use to allocate expenses by nature and function to ensure compliance with the expanded guidance provided in the new standard
  • Provide help in determining the computation of required and often difficult to determine liquidity measurements by identifying all financial assets, some of which may not be obvious, and determining the portions of each available for expenditure within one year of the balance sheet date
  • Determination of the required restatements of prior year financial statement and footnote information for those provisions of the new standard that must be applied retroactively
  • Assistance in drafting all newly required footnote disclosures and revisions to existing footnotes
  • Pro forma conversion of your most recent audited financial statements and footnotes under the new standard, including an educational presentation to your board of directors

*The standard takes effect for all not-for-profits with a Dec. 31, 2018, year end. Fiscal year-end entities must implement the standard for years ending in 2019.
