Fundriver will be updating databases as a result of FASB’s Accounting Standards Update 2016-14: Presentation of Financial Statements of Not-for-Profit Entities. The update will involve a change to the net asset configuration and the addition of new reports. The updates will be available in most Fundriver databases effective January 7, 2018*.
*Fundriver databases that have non-standard net asset classifications (or fund types) will take additional time to incorporate these updates. Clients with non-standard net asset classifications will be notified during the month of January 2018.
NET ASSET CLASSIFICATIONS
The Net Asset Classification configuration screen will be updated in Fundriver to include a column to comply with ASU 2016-14. The column is called FASB Restriction and will allow clients to assign their current net asset classifications (NACs) to the two new NACs: ‘With Donor Restriction’ and ‘Without Donor Restriction’. The images below show the current configuration as well as the updated configuration for net asset classifications. Please note that some databases have different terminology for net asset classifications. For example, Fund Type is another common term used in some databases.

Note: The Code column will no longer be visible after the update. Please contact Fundriver client support if you are adding a new net asset classification to your database. The Code will need to be added by client support for the net asset classification to work properly.

IMPORTANT NOTE: When this screen is updated, clients will be responsible for assigning their current net asset classifications with a FASB Restriction. Options are ‘With Donor Restriction’, ‘Without Donor Restriction’ and ‘N/A’.
Instructions to assign FASB Restrictions:
1. Click on the Edit link next to the applicable net asset classification.
An edit pop-up box will appear on the screen:
2. Select the applicable FASB Restriction from the drop down. Then, click the Save button.
Please contact Support if you need help with this process.
A new suite of reports will be added to Fundriver. Per the reports directory below, you will be able to select from six new reports under the ASU 2016-14 reports suite.
3 of those reports will not show in the ASU 2016-14 Reports suite until they are published! Please seethis articlefor more info.
