(established under the Accountant Act, Laws of Kenya)

 IFRS For NPOs Workshop

Theme: Accountability and confidence in the execution and reporting of the budget plan for NPOs’

Date: 15th February 2019

Venue: Hilton Hotel, Nairobi

Time: 9.00am to 5.00pm

Overview

Nonprofit organizations exist mainly to provide help or resources to a target audience with a specific need. They usually serve a public purpose such as enriching the lives of people in the community, and enjoy special considerations in terms of tax, legal status and accountability. A nonprofit organization is mission-driven, which requires the management and board to set objectives aimed at achieving the organization’s mission statement. A nonprofit organization’s strategic objectives focus on the services provided to its target market.

Nonprofit organizations are subject to stringent governance requirements, mainly because they usually use donor or grant funding to do their work. This makes them accountable to their donors and the grant programs, as well as to the public whose taxes go towards grant funding. Governance objectives include the establishment of sound policies for issues such as compensation, purchasing and procurement, human resource and volunteer management, and asset and risk management

Financial reporting for NPOs is not guided by a stand-alone standard, rather, multiple standards are to be adopted for different disclosures and activities, all directed towards providing a sound financial reporting framework to satisfy the reporting needs of the various stakeholders. Some NPOs are finding it more suitable using the International Public-Sector Accounting Standards (IPSAS) while a good number are inclined towards International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) for SMEs among other standards. Further, increased scrutiny from the government and other regulatory agencies, coupled with reduced donor funding have contributed to an environment where NPOs are required to be more accountable and disclose information that meets the expectations of the different bodies that the NPOs report to.

ICPAK has organized a one-day workshop themed ‘Accountability and confidence in the execution and reporting of the budget plan for NPOs’ to bring together personnel involved in the reporting and management of NPO activities, to dialogue on the above issues.
