Course Description

Participants will review the application of accounting standards, with an emphasis on areas where choice exists, that are found in Part III of the CPA Canada Handbook. These standards were drafted with the underlying premise that where transactions and circumstances are the same, there should be no difference in accounting from for-profit entities. As a result, participants will also review and analyze relevant sections of Part II of the CPA Canada Handbook, Accounting Standards for Private Enterprises (ASPE). Participants will learn what choices are available when setting policies, the impacts on disclosure, and participate in activities and exercises to strengthen the knowledge gains throughout this course.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Identify and analyze accounting issues specific to NPOs
  • Identify and explain where policy choices exist and their impacts on the organization
