FAQ on NFPs' concessionary loans

By Cutcher & Neale Accounting and Financial Services - March 25, 2021

A new AASB staff FAQ focuses on accounting for concessionary loans, investigating the interaction between AASB 1058 Income of Not-for-Profit Entities and AASB 9 Financial Instruments.

The FAQ provides non-authoritative guidance on how a not-for-profit applies AASB's 1058 and 9 in accounting for concessionary loans, highlighting that the standards are applied together. The same accounting outcome should result, regardless of whether an entity appears to apply either AASB 9 or AASB 1058 first.

The FAQ includes a flowchart to set out accounting process to follow and a simple practical example to illustrate it.

It responds to feedback that AASB 1058 paragraph BC88 could cause confusion in applying relevant AASB 1058 and AASB 9 requirements.
