Further Remarks


  • FASB 1993-06 / SFAS 116: "Accounting for Contributions Received and Contributions Made"
  • FASB 2018-08: "Clarifying the Scope and the Accounting Guidance for Contributions Received and Contributions Made"
  • FASB ASC 958-605: "Not-for-Profit Entities - Revenue Recognition"
    • This covers how contributions received must be accounted.
    • The Gentoo Infrastructure team recieves contributions in multiple non-cash forms:
      • Contribution of Assets
        • e.g. Hardware donated outright to the Foundation, and held by the Foundation.
      • Contribution of Utilities, covered by SFAS-116, example 9, paragraph 190 & 191
        • e.g. Server rackspace (including electricity & network connectivity)
      • Contribution of Use of Property, covered by SFAS-116, example 10, paragraph 192 & 193.
        • e.g. Use of dedicated servers


  • See and [IRS-946] for more info.
  • All Assets:Capital accounts are tagged with the MACRS information, and have a paired contra-asset account under Assets:Accumulated-Depreciation.
    • Example Assets:Capital:Computers:Infra:Purchased_GDS5_201411:
      • What is it? Computers:Infra tells us it is a computer or parts thereof used by Infra. (Computers:Dev would be used by a Developer)
      • What is the MACRS system & property class life: GDS5 GDS, with a 5-year class life.
      • When was it purchased? 201411
  • All assets use the mid-quarter convention to avoid splitting the calculation between property that may use half-year convention vs property that must use the mid-quarter convention.
  • The purchasing year & quarter is derived from the purchase date in the account name.
  • Risks & Outstanding Issues:
    • There are no Section 179 elections in place for additional depreciation.
    • It is possible that some assets are in the wrong IRS asset class, per [IRS-946] Appendix B where the manner in which property is used can change it's lifecycle.
    • The exact location of non-US assets may impact the depreciation system. This is NOT considered at this time, as minimal assets are outside of the US.

Asset Classes in use

Account                        IRS-Asset-Class     GDS-Class-Life
Assets:Capital:Computers:*     00.12               5
Assets:Capital:Banners:*       00.11               7

FASB 2016-14

  • FASB 2016-14 MUST be applied for all fiscal years starting after 2017/12/15, but the standard permits earlier application.
    • The treasurer has elected to apply the changes to ALL financial statements, as none of them have been formally audited at this time.
  • Donor Restrictions
    • The earlier boards did NOT include any formal means for donors to restrict cash donations.
    • Some in-kind donations MAY have usage restrictions (e.g. bandwidth limitations, disclosure limitations), but are not expected to impact the financial statements at this time. This has not yet been confirmed with a CPA that specializes in NPO accounting.
  • FASB 2016-14 changed the classes of Net Assets:
    • Before:
      • Permanantly restricted Net Assets
      • Temporarily restricted Net Assets
      • Unrestricted Net Assets
    • After:
      • Net Assets with Donor Restrictions
      • Net Assets without Donor Restrictions
